While Scott Brown's recent half-court shot was impressive, it only came after four failed attempts at making a basket.
An aide to the Massachusetts senator revealed to the Boston Globe that Brown actually made five attempts at a half-court shot while visiting the Hyannis Youth and Community Center in Hyannis, Massachusetts. The aide said Brown missed his first four tries.
Brown's reelection committee posted a video of his successful attempt to YouTube, labeling the footage "Scott Brown's Amazing Half-Court Shot." They even distributed the video to Brown's supporters along with a message from Dave Cowens, a former Boston Celtics center and a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Brown is currently involved in a costly senate race with his chief Democratic rival, Elizabeth Warren. Campaign donations to Brown and Warren have topped $30 million, with more than six months to go before Election Day.
