Hey sports fans! Last week on Up To Speed… Center, we asked for your best at-home highlights and athletic feats of derring do. Today, we opened the Good mailbox and found some tasty trick-shot treats - as well as some epic fails.

The best of the best included:

  • Randye Davis, who works in operations in New York, NY, recording her 11-year-old son, Jack, skating and shooting like a young Wayne Gretzky.
  • Trisha Donaldson, Sales Operations and Strategy Director from Birmingham, MI, capturing her ten-year-old Wyatt performing basketball high kicks on his trampoline.
  • New Jerseyan and Up To Speed teammate Dave Boerger giving new meaning to the phrase “staying grounded” as he attempts -- and fails -- to fly Michael Jordan-style over his daughter Hazel.
  • From Lowell, MA, Service Representative Theresa Arpano’s son Kyle sinking a nearly impossible chip shot. Get this guy a tour card!
  • Up To Speed host Matt Fiedler challenged fellow producer Michael “Decaf” DePrima to a Keurig K-Cup trick toss which Mike won in mere minutes. If you missed this java joust, well, you should have “bean” there. Get it?

That’s all for now. Keep sending your sport- and non-sport-related highlights to our good@verizon.com mailbox, we love to see them!

Tell us what you think of Up To Speed.
