Viral video: Mormon missionaries got game

Video

Via NPR:

There's a video making the rounds on the Internet that is pure gold. First the caveat: We don't know what exactly is going on. The assumption, based on their dress, is that it features two Mormon missionaries dominating a pickup basketball game.

First, you see the young men in white shirts and black ties miss a couple of shots, but then as the game truly begins, they dominate, sinking layups and nailing two dunks. Best of all: It's a friendly, happy atmosphere. Watch, but be warned there are a few fleeting expletives.

Gawker notes that basketball is one of only a few sports Mormon missionaries are allowed to play. According to the official Missionary Handbook, they should "not allow the situation to become intense or competitive."

Unfortunately, such athletic talent doesn't come naturally to all Mormons...
