Re: Awareness Test

Very effective. I counted the 13 passes but somehow that bear became a member of the black team. -Chuck-

Re: Awareness Test

I got the passes right and the movement of the ball around the back trying to confuse the count but as long as the color of the bear was the same as the other team... I ignored it.

Probably speaks volumes for a bright yellow color jacket.

Re: Awareness Test

I bet if that bear were on a motorcycle in that scene, I wouldve noticed him.

Re: Awareness Test

I found him, but was expecting something like that. I did miss him moonwalking.

Re: Awareness Test

OK, got the # of passes correct but didn't see the bear even though, based on earlier posts, I knew he was coming. The "test" makes a good point however, and fortunately for us, the activity on the street is seldom quite as chaotic as the action in the video!

Obviously you have never driven in Tucson with all the "Snow Birds" from back east driving around in the winter time. It's like one big asphalt demolition derby.
