The respective sports of basketball and volleyball are in fact quite closely related; they were both created at more or less the same time and for the same purpose, to give college students a wintertime sport that didn’t require ice-skates.

Nick won the fight on points; the judges were particularly impressed by the way he kept blocking the bear’s left hook with his right eye.
