We have said it before and we will say it again: Trick shot videos are getting played out. The more videos that are released the less unique they become. The wow factor is gone from almost all trick shot videos, especially since they are so easy to fake. Take the Martin Kaymer video for example, which was fun to watch but there’s no way the tricks were real. Whether or not UConn quarterback Johnny McEntee is able to do the things in his video is a topic for debate also. There have been a few trick shot videos that seem real like this one from Lassi Hurskainen, but all in all people are tired of seeing them.
All that being said, we just had to post the Wayne Gretzky trick shot video. I’ve watched this about six times now and I just can’t decide if the tricks are real. What do you guys think?
I mean yeah he probably can’t actually make a tree spring buds with a hockey puck, but most of the others look real. Plus, he is The Great One.
Thanks to CBSSports.com’s Eye on Hockey blog for the video.Google+
