We had a local HS boys varsity coach (he's retired now, thankfully) who would regularly go into a 4-corner offense any time he had a 4 point or more lead in the second half...he won several state titles that one game, he came out of the locker room to start the third quarter (his team had a 9 or 10 point lead and was getting the ball to start the third) pushing these two "teacher" style desk chairs - you know, the leather swivel/lean back type chairs...he pushed them out onto the court - one on the baseline and one at half-court and then smiled at my partner and I and said "Just wanted you guys to be comfortable this half, because we aren't going anywhere"...there were two shots taken the third quarter - his team took one with just a few seconds left and then the other team heaved it length of the court to end the quarter...both missed...4th quarter wasn't much score was low 20's to high teens...boring. Oh, we made him move the chairs - after sharing a laugh with him...
