Over a year ago, I posted here on Funkhouser that I was challenging anyone to break my World Record of “Most Granny Style Free Throws in One Minute”. I’ve been carrying this title on my shoulders for five-plus years without a single legitimate challenger, and I wanted someone to step up and take a shot at my world record.
Tuesday, I got an email that said this:
Whammy, the five-year reign had come to an end. I mean, I did only hit EIGHT granny-style free throws in a minute. It didn’t seem that hard for someone else to break. So my hat is off you Chris Whitson of Noosa, Queensland, Australia. Congratulations on crushing my record by hitting 10 free throws in a minute. You did it Chris, the world is your oyster.
Wait, what’s that? A second email? “Dan Rollman has something to say about the RecordSetter World Record you follow, Most Granny Style Free Throws Made In One Minute.” He must be sending his condolences on my record loss. and thanking me for such a glorious reign as a world record holder.
That’s right folks, back on top. It’s like getting caught using a foreign object in a wrestling championship match, the title does not change hands. So, still your current, reigning, defending, Most Granny Style Free Throw Champion of the World… Richmond Bramblet. As Conan would say, “Nobody Makes Chump Meat Out Of The Maestro”.
So #BBN, the challenge is back open. BREAK MY WORLD RECORD. If you think you can hit more than eight granny style free throws in a minute, film it and send it to RecordSetter. And if you’re successful, we’ll feature it right here on KSR.
And no cheating this time…
