Today, we are highlighting the 3 on 3 Coed Basketball team, US of Shakin & Bacon.
US of Shakin & Bacon In Ten
1) How long has your team been Zogging together for?
A year, we just completed our fourth season Zog seasons.
2) How did you settle on your team name?
Several team members work in television. Our name derives from the title of a series one of us was working on– The United States of Bacon.
3) What’s your favorite team memory?
In a season riddled by injury, Nicole was often the only girl able to make the games. One night, she forgot her shoes, and had to play in one our guy’s low-top Vans, that were at least four sizes too big for her. So Nicole played four games with oversized sneaks…and still led us to a 3-1 record.
4) What movie title best describes your team’s skills?
Hustle and Flow. We’re a small team, so we depend on hustle, movement and passing to be competitive.
5) What song title best describes your team’s relationship?
“99 problems” We can be shooting horrible, we can be physically banged up, we can be getting killed on the boards…but we never have a problem with the ladies on our team. They carry us and were the biggest reason we won the championship this season.
6) What celebrity do you think would best fit as a teammate on your team?
Michael Shannon. He’s an amazingly talented character actor (Boardwalk Empire, Revolutionary Road, Man of Steel). He’s not the leading man, but he always contributes a strong performance.
We’re a not a team of superstars. We’re a team of role players. Everyone knows their assignment and sacrifices their own game for the good of the team.
Michael would fit right in with our squad.
7) Beer Pong or Flip Cup?
C. None of the above. We’re an older team, our Beer Ping/Flip Cup days ended with the Bush administration. (For some of us, Bush 41…for others Bush 43.)
8) Which of your teammates is the most entertaining during your games? Why?
Tough call here. We play with some real characters. You never know what Nicole is going to say or do on the court, or which item of clothing she has forgotten that we will have to track down last minute so we can play, always a surprise with that one! And then there is Kori. She’s constantly talking, coaching, and cheerleading. She’s our Energizer bunny.
9) Which of your teammates is the most entertaining after a couple of drinks? Why?
10) Describe your team’s Zog experience in one word.
Not only have we ‘ve won some games, but through playing together we’ve become good friends.
