Sports clip o' the day: Globetrotter sets world record for longest shot


So how far was it? Wait, a little context first.

We at BringMeTheNews know what we just used a Globetrotter clip for Sports Clip O' The Day last week. And we know this clip is a couple days old – ancient history in InterWebs world.

We don't care. It's awesome, anyway, and here it is, a basket made by Corey "Thunder" Law, at the Guinness World Record length of 109 feet, nine inches.

It happened during World Record Day last week in Phoenix, and a station there points out that Law and a couple Globetrotters had to try for an hour, but then ... Boom, goes the dynamite. Count it.
