Yesterday, as I was reading my colleague Clark Judge's excellent piece on Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, I found myself trying to imagine what the catch that Clark described -- two balls at the same time, in an actual drill -- might have looked like.

Well, I didn't have to wait long to cut the old imaginationland nodes off and actually see what the catch looked like, thanks to the magic of YouTube (and Jimmy Traina of SI's Hot Clicks).

As you'll see below, it's pretty ridiculous -- Finley is accidentally thrown two balls at once and somehow manages to catch one in each hand. At the same time.

No big deal for the guy who says he'll be "changing the tight end position" in 2011, right?

that's not really impressive, I've done that before with my buddies and caught them simultaneously
Yeah, just because pro players are saying it was awesome, doesn't mean it was more impressive than you catching your buddies' two balls simultaneously. Right.

He was out of bounds!

lol, but I do believe the other poster has caught them.  I've seen this a lot in HS and College practices.  That video isn't why Finley is a beast, he's a beast because he can catch footballs and push other beasts around on the football field in actual games.  There are a ton of tricks you can do that don't make you a top professional athlete.  Harlem Globetrotters do insane things that I never see in NBA games, but nobody thinks they're better athletes than Bron Bron.

I used to lift weights and train MMA, occasionally MMA fighters will post up videos showing some of the lifts they do.  Online people go crazy but really in any serious gym everyone does most of that stuff.  Kind of related but not exact, since MMA guys aren't pro lifters so it's not a direct comparison.
