I swear this is true:
Last night after I went to bed I was awake thinking of replying to vicaphit's Up the Stairs and gently explaining what a Champion is.
I was going to say that it's difficult to shoot the ball up there and have it stay, and after you try for a while you'd swear it's impossible, but then you look at the Mars landing and realize it probably is possible.
Then I was going to say 'Of course, blurg will probably shoot a basket up there and catch it.'

Nicely done. You did not disappoint.
(I'll post it as soon as I learn to count that high)

There's a little tiny hump on the right side of the top ledge, just enough to get the ball to roll back to the left before falling off if it's going slow. I was able to get it to roll back and stop on the orange ball with no pieces in the goal, but I made one little tweak and could never reproduce it. Besides, I do so love my baskets.

Bonus 11 4/3

It could have been easier than that, but I liked the spinback.

Pretty close, but unfortunately it rolls off.

Can't tell... looks a little out.
Judges??

Here's a Mind the Gap with fewer pieces than SockHolder and fewer left in the goal than NightStryke:
