Basket-blog 8 July 2009


So, as you’ve probably guessed by now, we here at Tokyo Police Club are pretty much athletic dynamos.  From hockey to equestrian, from fishing to triathlon, from lawn bowling to regular bowling, our multi-sport virtuosity makes Neon Deon Sanders look more like Crappy Crappy Crapface.  Recently we were asked to participate in a basketball tournament later this summer, and because you don’t get a “Participant” ribbon without playing, we agreed.  Of course, merely shaming any and all opponents publicly isn’t enough for us, so we’ve started really practicing our skills.  After just two practices, we’re already seeing a marked improvement.  For instance, today I didn’t even come close to throwing up until the very end of the game, and I only started trying to let the other team win in order to end my suffering after fifteen minutes of play.  Progress!

Please find enclosed photographic evidence of our sportingness.






you guys look very dashing in your basketball attire. but, i think some true evidence of your wicked ballin’ skillz would have to be a video! yup, so you better get on it graham and make us tpc fans proud! :)

You guys are adorable, but you need to try something more extreme, like skydiving or jumping off a helicopter onto a mountain with a snowboard attached to your feet. Or something. Up the stakes.
