I remember once, thinking "We the hell do we bother throwing a first pokeball at legendaries. It's not like they every actually get caught on the first ball anyways". I thought this, of course, while playing Platinum, and of course, caught Giritina with the first ball i threw at it... a pokeball.
1985, before the Iowa-Michigan game, Coach Fry sent a guard out to long snap during pregame punting warmups just to mess with Schembechler, then turned his back while the guard wildly snapped the ball over the punter's head, off the turf, and into the second row. Schembechler, watching the display, asked Fry, "You're not going to let that guy long snap today, are you?" Fry responded, "Coach Schembechler, I don't plan on punting." Go Hawkeyes
