Greetings ladies and gents, welcome to the MOCpages studios in New York. I知 your host, Chris Phipson, bringing you live coverage of all the March Madness action. Today we have a very special feature in our program; we are announcing the winner of our personal basketball lesson giveaway! One lucky winner has won a lesson with the great Shaquille O誰eal, and we take you live now to courtside... or, should I say... seaside, with Shaq right now!

Shaq: Thanks, Chris, I知 here with our winner, um... what did you say your name was again, sir?

Pirate: Ay, laddie, the name痴 Cap地... Cap地 Goldeye. Arghh!

Shaq: Ah, yes, Captain Goldeye. Well, congratulations on winning, Captain - and I must say, you have a wonderful hardwood floor here on your ship.

Captain: Aye, thank ya laddie, the boys put in a little extra spit 創 polish today!

Shaq: Before we get started with the lesson, I do have one question: do you happen to have a goal around here somewhere?

Captain: Arghh! Gold? Why, of course we do, laddie. Gold bars, coins, me hook, me teeth... even me name痴 got gold in it!

Shaq: Uh, right. Well, moving on, the first thing you need to know about playing basketball is how to dribble the ball. Anytime you want to go somewhere with the ball, you have to dribble it, like this.

Captain: Argh, I can稚 see so well no more, sonny, but I think I might have the gen池al idea. Let me try.

Shaq: Sure.

Captain: Well, I s恥ose that was more of a pour than a dribble, wouldn稚 ya say?

Shaq: Umm..... well, let痴 move on to the next part: shooting the ball. The idea is to shoot the ball and make a basket, like this (Shaq passes the ball to the captain in a shooting motion).

Captain: I think I値l leave the basket-making to the ladies, but shooting I certainly know about! Let me try.


Shaq: Uhh... well, I guess I値l just try to explain the rest. There are several types of shots: there痴 the 3-point shot, the free throw, the hook shot...

Captain (interrupting): Hook shot? Aye, I can shoot me gun just as well with me hook as me hand! Shall I show you?

Shaq: Um, that痴 ok, maybe another time... then there痴 my favorite shot, the dunk!

Captain: Aye, that be my favorite as well! We do them nearly ev池y day on the ship; we even have this special plank for them. They池e the deadliest in all the seven seas! Shall I do one now?

Shaq: (Gulps) Uh, um, no thanks, that痴 all right. So, overall, it痴 a great game, and once you get the hang of it, you can go out and play with your buddies, and see if you can beat them!

Captain: So if I played you, I壇 try to beat you?

Shaq: That痴 right.

Captain: Sounds dandy, I think I致e sorta got the hang of it. Shall we give it a go?

Shaq: Well, we don稚 have a ball anymore, but...

Captain: ARGGHHHH!

Shaq: Aaaaahhhhhh!

Phipson: Well, as you can see, March Madness is just as exciting as ever! It looks like Captain, er, Goldeye was doing quite well. Until next time, this is your host Chris Phipson, with live coverage of March Madness from MOCpages studios!

Thanks for viewing!

Haha, the puns are great and both mini-sets well-designed. The pull-away shot at the end was clever.

Quoting Halhi 141 You got it in on time, judging from the date on the page. Great job!
It seems I did, considering Thoy has just closed the group for entries. *heart still pounding furiously* Thanks!

By the way, judges, I *think* I got this in on time (according to my clock), but if you deem I did not, that's not a big deal, just let me know. Thanks!
