This is what is left of the boys’ basketball goal……
Don't be, you too can waste a bunch of money on low-grade sporting equipment and let a tornado rip through your yard and tear it all to pieces.
Then watch as the male gene kicks in and spills out its love of duct tape all over the place.
Beautiful isn’t it?
What is it about duct tape that attracts the novice and the expert handyman alike?
When my husband (the engineer) and I first got married I even busted him trying to attach the hood of his car with the shiny stuff....anything to save a buck huh, babe?
I know that many people will find it hard to believe but duct tape cannot fix everything!
It didn’t fix his car and well…you see the boys’ basketball goal.
One good gush of wind and a rainstorm that could float the arc and it’s bye-bye duct tape and hello trashed out yard ornament.
Peeps I get it, we all wanna save money but we get what we pay for and the duct tape? it only goes so far.
This spring the boys will be out, duct tape in hand, and at it again .....trying to resurrect the unsalvageable.
As much fun as it is to hear their muffled mutters of distain, I gotta put them out of MY misery.
Seriously because following spring is summer break. With summer break comes what my kids seems to think is my undying need to entertain and answer their every beck and call.
Ummmm……hate to burst their bubble.
And I would but because of my husband’s clear NBA capabilities (armchair coach is an NBA position, right) and my children’s obvious innate dunking abilities, hoop shop I must!
Now the shopping I have down but there is the small little snag...... I was born without the basketball chromosome – well any DNA that resembles anything sports like really, so I rely on the pros to walk me through and by walk me through I mean totally hold my hand through the entire process.
Hand holding involves a certain level of trust (and a price match guarantee), I look for reputable pros…here is where I have landed:
Pro Dunk Hoops - A family-owned company that specializes in designing, manufacturing and installing premium outdoor basketball goals and has for more than 20years. They offer manufacture-direct savings on all of their basketball goals including the top customer-rated adjustable, in-ground Pro Dunk® basketball goal.

Ryan and Keith have over 30 years combined experience, and are always standing by to answer your basketball goal questions.
And since withstanding is what we need, their “built like a tank” reputation, I’m thinking that maybe we have a chance though tornado season and fierce straight-line winds….with Basketballgoal buying guideline, even someone with my genetic insufficiencies as can’t go wrong!
All jokes aside I know I know I’ve bragged before that MUF (Mr.UnFun) is a volunteer coach at the Y. He’s built a rapport with the kids on his team and often has them over for a scrimmage….He and they are more than worthy of durable and safe equipment.
All the safety information that Pro Dunks has above and beyond a purchase made me feel confident that that when we are ready to buy they’ll help us 100% through the process.
Without the duct tape!
