WMC Sports competes in Grizzlies Battle Ballz tournament
The Memphis Grizzlies decided to thank the media's coverage of the team's banner season by having members wear giant plastic bubbles and run full speed into each other.
It's a game called BattleBallz, and you'll be able to see it for yourself when the Grizzlies play Utah Tuesday. Before you watch the final media members compete, the field needed to be pared down. FedExForum hosted the preliminary rounds Monday and WMC Action News 5 Sports Director Jarvis Greer and WMC Sports reporter Ari Alexander strapped into the bubble.
Greer's first round match was against Memphis Flyer Grizzlies beat writer Kevin Lipe, and Alexander took on 3shadesofblue.com blogger Jonathan May. Watch the video above for results, but mostly for entertainment.
