Colts' Harnish sinks half-court shot over battle for #8
What do you get when you cross two professional quarterbacks who want the same number?
In the case of Colts backup quarterbacks Chandler Harnish and Matt Hasselbeck, their battle over who wears #8 came down to a showdown on the Hoosier hardwood.
The newly-signed Hasselbeck has worn #8 for twelve seasons. Harnish wore it last year as a rookie backing up Andrew Luck.
So Hasselbeck bet Harnish that if Harnish could hit a half-court basketball shot, then Hasselbeck would give Harnish $8,000 and #8.
Hasselbeck apparently underestimated Harnish's Hoosier basketball prowess. He's from Bluffton, Indiana and played basketball at Norwell HS. Harnish sank the shot with no problems - which Hasselbeck, being the good sport that he is, helped him celebrate.
