I think I may have found my successor. We were out in Minnesota visiting and we did a quick video of my three year old nephew Simon:
I made it to the NBA.
When I was a little kid I dreamed about playing in the NBA. Basketball was and is my favorite sport and I wanted to play professional. Back then I didn’t know what it takes, I didn’t have the necessary drive, and I didn’t put in the work necessary to play basketball professionally.
2 years ago a new NBA dream was born, to perform at NBA games.
My locker room was next to the TNT announcers. It was Dick Stockton and Chris Webber. I could hear them talking about what makes for a good call of a game. I was lying on the floor of my locker room catching up on my energy from the overnight flight I had just endured (it is not all glamorous).
The performance went perfect. No mistakes and a great crowd. I performed between the first and second quarters. Here is a video of the performance.
Bring on the rest of the NBA. I am ready!
I am going to be performing for the Memphis Grizzlies during game 4 of the first round of the playoffs versus the LA Clippers. I am so excited! I have been working on becoming an NBA entertainer for a little over two years and in 2 days that is going to become a reality!
You can do anything you can imagine.
Put your mind to work!
I have put up a few world records on Recordsetter.com

I have created a new marketing campaign for the NBA Playoff teams.
It consists of custom fortune cookies, a takeout box, an origami star and lots of love. Plus this new demo video:
The Idaho Stampede game was great.
I had a great time performing and the crowd loved it.
I shared a locker room with Rumble:
It is fitting as I at Taco Bell for my pregame meal… no wonder rumble liked me so much.
The Restroom in my locker room was also shared by the referees. One ref saw my unicycle and wanted to give it a try. He tried riding it with dress shoes on… I thought I might have to step in and ref the game as well.
A few minutes later another ref comes walking in and he asks me if his pants look to short. He ripped his pants and he didn’t have another pair. He was quite a bit taller than the other two refs and had to borrow one of their spare pants. He was definitely ready if a flood happened during the game :)
I am excited for this weekend. I am performing in the NBA D’League for the first time. Meg and I are headed up to Boise and I will be performing for the Idaho Stampede.
I presented my first elementary school assembly this week.
It was a lot of fun and the kids enjoyed it:
The day before heading down to Flagstaff AZ, I got a nasty head cold. Flying with a head cold is never fun on the ears.
I can’t call in sick. Who would I call?
Whit: Hey Joe, would you mind filling in for me tomorrow I don’t feel too well.
Joe: Sure what will I be doing?
Whit: Oh, the halftime show at Northern Arizona. You just juggle three basketballs, dribble them, and shoot them. Joe and while you are at it, it would be great if you could do it all while riding a unicycle.
Joe: uh …..
The show must go on, sick or not sick. I loaded myself up with cold medicine and performed. It was my first experience performing while sick… and it went awesome. It was a perfect show with no mistakes!!!
Here are some great pictures from the game:
