I caught a bit of this new game called Slamball on TNN last night. It's a combination of basketball, trampoline, soccer, hockey and football. You have a regular sized basketball court with 4 trampolines on each end of the court in front of each basket. The defenders are allowed to basically mug you/check you (no clipping, or hitting below the belt) while you are moving the ball around to steal the ball away, but once you are in the air from jumping on the trampoline, they can only go for the ball, not the body. There's a goalie of some sorts to try and block the shot, and goal-tending seems to be allowed. Dunks are worth 3 points, normal fields are 2 points. I don't think there's a travelling call in this game. There's a 15 second shot clock, so it's pretty fast paced. Anyhow, it did feel a little like one of those futuristic games you see in movies set in the future. It was a bit wierd, but seeing such high dunks was fun. I don't know if it'll catch on, but try to tune in and check it out on TNN in early August (I think it premieres 8/3/02).
