While more important things were happening outside the arena, an SUV-shaped blimp crashed into the crowd at last night’s Trail Blazers-Pacers game.

I was always impressed by the controllers’ ability to fly those giant balloons around such confined spaces, but apparently it’s not a flawless process. Neither was removing the blimp – though watching arena workers struggle to jam that thing through the section entrance was pretty enjoyable.
