    That's awesome. Amazing how focused the brain gets to the exclusion of anything else.

    Seriously, I wonder what if the bear (dressed in dark costume/ blended with the other players in dark clothings) is replaced by an attractive looking lady, in colorful clothing or barely dressed.

    I had to try this at home as the "technology" that we have at work* isn't up to fluff to show this kind of thing. Uh, wait, I mean I was working really hard all day....

    Even though I had seen the reference to the bear in this thread before I watched it, I didn't see the bear at first. Quite amazing.

    * scarily enough, I'm working as a computer programmer.

    Missed the bear, but then again once I saw it was B-Ball I didn't pay much
    attention.

    And IMO. it wasn't a very good moon walk

    A friend of mine is an air traffic controller - she got it. But she's used to tracking multiple moving objects and multi-tasking.

    The wife didn't see the bear either. Of course, now I can't keep track of the passes because I can only see the bear.
