That Al Thornton Dunk

OK, so I posted 1100 words on Al Thornton earlier today, prompted by Jonathon Abrams' piece in the Times.  Abrams references a dunk over a 6'11" dude from Wisconsin.  I was just sitting here thinking, 'Man, I wish I could see that dunk' and then I realized, 'I CAN!'  YouTube is about the greatest thing ever, dontcha think?

Is it as impressive as Vince Carter over Fredrick Weis in Sydney?  Not quite.  But it's pretty damn impressive.

The real question is, which was worth more, the pictures, or my 1100 words (10% inflation I guess)?
