Reporting on the situation unfolding in the Peoria suburb driveway, local child Nadira told The Gorko that Uncle Toby said of course he meant to get the basketball stuck in the rim because he always tries to do that.
‘It is a stupid argument. He was trying to show off his slam dunk when the ball slipped out of his hand and got crammed into that spot between the rim and the backboard, and now he can’t get it out.’
Uncle Toby was wearing his patented knee-high white socks with bright yellow short-shorts and a yellow and purple striped sleeveless basketball jersey with TOBY on the back.
‘He is such a nerd,’ said Nadira before going off to play with someone her own age.
