Anybody who plays a sport knows all sports are about 95% dumb luck.
One kid got the dumbest of dumb luck when he hurled a shot behind him close to the buzzer of a youth basketball game in West Virginia.
Check out how he literally just flings it without even looking and it hits DEAD center of the hoop.
#SCTop10 What do you do when shots like this are falling for the other team? @nay_rdavis @Bballmo86348786 https://t.co/rlQCvNsAUJ— Matthew A Scheidler (@Matthew A Scheidler)1550341058.0
And now watch it again for the ref's reaction.
Yeah... that face.
We know that face.
That is the face of a ref who is so done, that people are writing country music about it.

We wonder how the refs of these other crazy trick shots feel.
Feinting the keeper then hitting a no-look shot, this is one of my favorite goals in the last couple years. https://t.co/2FNPeBrKfU— Yu (@Yu)1549654717.0

It's crazy, right?
One second can literally change the entire game.
And even in the professional leagues, it's often all 100% dumb luck.

Basketball fans, how do you do it?
Is it for love of the game?
Or some sort of crazy masochism?
We think we'll stay over here where it's safe.
But wherever you are, just remember: there is a ref that is SO over your half-court-no-look-buzzer-shots.
Not impressed at all.
