Mom Makes Half-Court Granny Shot, Goes Nuts

Bethany Academy in Bloomington, Minn., held a fundraiser, and the family who raised the most money received the opportunity to take a half-court shot for a grand prize: half-off tuition at the school next year. Grace Ramey raised the most, but her mother Angela took the shot. The video is fantastic.

Angela’s throw was well short, and she looked away, but the bounce actually put the ball high enough to get in. Everyone went crazy, and Angela was stunned:


Good mom. Good shot.
