    Pool Basketball - Yikes!

    This video popped up on digg today and I thought of you all..

    Yikes! How deep is that deep end? It looks like they built they're deck with an opening to jump from the top.. on purpose! Has anyone else done that?

    My wife said she would kill me if I tried jumping off the deck... that is of course if I didn't kill myself in the process. Of course she can't watch me 24/7... now all I need is a basketball hoop...
