    Somebody forgot to tell this poor guy that there’s another game played in Baltimore that’s way more popular. It’s called: “Shoot da Brother & shoot ta kill”. Disgusting Ghetto hoods.

    I don’t think this surprises anyone. Really? Shot while playing basketball. People get shot going to the grocery. So getting shot playing basketball is newsworthy. Imagine that.
