This hoop is built for slam dunks

Shooting mini hoops is our favorite way to relax after a long day at work. There's nothing like the satisfaction of hearing that SWISH as we make a goal. And then making our own crowd cheering noises to celebrate. You know what we mean. Don't pretend you don't do it too! Our slam dunk game is spot on, and we're desperately in need of an upgrade. Something more satisfying. Something with pyrotechnics. Something like the Flame Jam Hoop.  

We know what you're thinking: "Since when does ThinkGeek do the sports?" And, you know what? Fair point. We may not be throwing homeruns, but we are doing what geeks do: making sports more interesting with things like statistical analysis on key plays. Now, we've given the casual over-the-door hoop a little tweak, too. When you score three goals in a row (using the provided patented "fireproof" basketball), the ring of the hoop will shoot up flames to celebrate your victory. A song of basketball and fire, if you will. 

Let the flames be your private cheerleading squad. We don't need the praise of millions of fans when we have the approval of fire. This Flame Jam Hoop includes all the mounting supplies you need to affix it atop any door, and it's even small enough to take to the office. All it takes it a bit of lighter fluid (included) and you're ready to ball. (Is that right? We still don't do sports.) Kobe!
