Blake Harper is a first grader at Mater Dei School in Maryland. In this video he is shooting a free throw that will earn the entire school a day off on the Monday after the Super Bowl. A 7th and 8th grader have each missed a 3-pointer that would have done the same. All the pressure in the world was on Blake and he hit nothing but the bottom of the net. Then he gets mobbed by the other students. Pretty cool...

We had a similar contest at work, where we all got a Saturday off from work if Carl from Purchasing made a free throw. He didn't. Stupid Carl.

hopefully the kid is ok. That's a pretty fierce mobbing for such a little guy. :) But very cool nonetheless.

Also, when you grow up you forget about how great that feeling was when you find out that you do not have school. That is a good memory to have.
