The demise of the basketball hoop

James Naismith would be so disappointed.  The once-ubiquitous home basketball hoop has all but disappeared from driveways everywhere. 

I noticed this as I was driving across town the other day.  One lone house had a portable hoop set up in the driveway.  It looked weather-beaten and unused.  I started looking for the old-fashioned kind--the ones hung over the garage doors.  Across town and back...nothing.  Not one other hoop of any kind did I see. 

I guess kids these days are too busy playing Wii basketball to play real ball.

It's a shame...
