48/365+1: Is That A Bomb???


48/365+1: Is That A Bomb???, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

These balls are on the sidewalk outside the mega-arena named after the largest local company. OK, so I get the tennis ball, the basketball, the baseball and soccer ball. But what is that red and white thing that looks like a bomb?

Fishing bobber? (More sporty than a bomb, at least.)

I was thinking it looked like the fishing thing, too.

a third vote for a fishing bobber.

Aunt B said...

It's for sure a fishing bobber.

Anastasia said...

everybody beat me to it...I was popping in to say I think it's a fishing bobber. which at least links it to sport even if one of these things is not like the other...

if it were a bomb, it would need a fuse, right?

Linda said...

Definitely a bobber for fishing. It floats on the water above the hook and bait to alert you to when the fish is taking the bait.

robin andrea said...

Yes, I would have said fishing bobber too.

The closest I could come was a buoy. Not too far off, I guess.

It may be a fishing bobber thing, but that is very random that it was included with the other balls.

I'm with everyone else, it is the fishing bouy thingy.

But it's cleverly disguised as a bomb. :)

Did anyone mention that it might be a fishing bobber?

i've heard of bass tournaments, but had no idea they were held in arenas.

Bobber. Definitely a bobber.

Fishing bobbers are usually so small and all those other balls are usually different sizes so it makes the picture look like you made it in a photo editor. It kind of reminds me of a Kid Pix picture (kid's drawing software). Are they real?

Cloudscome said...

It's some kind of wall or border for the court, right? Made out of fiberglass ball shapes?

This is on the sidewalk outside the FedEx Forum. It's weird to me that they made all the balls the same size. Seeing a tennis ball the size of a basketball is just wrong.
