Another Lost Episode Of The Chris Farley Show

" being here again, Paul."

"You're welcome, Chris."

"Remember...remember those red ball balls with the handles...what...that...were big and giant...remember those rubber...balls you'd sit on as a kid...and bounced around on?"

"Yeah, Chris. They were called Hoppity Hop Balls in America. Some people called them Space Hoppers, or Kangaroo Balls or just Hop Balls."


"What about them Chris?"

" does Cardinals announcer Mike Shannon sit on one in the Busch Stadium broadcast booth?"

That is not a Space Hopper. It's a balance ball most likely prescribed for him by a physical therapist or back rehab clinic. People who sit a lot for their jobs suffer from back problems, as you probably know. That ball encourages movement, active lordosis (though he's not demonstrating it in that photo) and makes it easy to remember to work the care abdominal and back muscles rather than just sit hunched over. I use the same exact thing at work, though not for the entire day - I switch out between a chair and the ball.

I meant "core" muscles!

If you say so. But I know Mike Shannon- that's a Hoppity Hop.
