Illustration for article titled This Basketball Child's Daring Climb Is The Sports Highlight Of The Night

An errant basketball took a desperate break in the name of freedom this evening and tried to escape a game between Boise State and Fresno State. Referees tried to dislodge it; didn’t work. Players tried to retrieve it; no dice.

Enter the basketball child. This video is on the long side, and the basketball child doesn’t show up for a bit. It’s worth watching it all, as it makes the deus ex machina of the basketball child that much better.
