And then there's good ole Flubber being used to give one team a decided advantage over another.

In Disney's "The Absent Minded Professor"Flubber is ironed onto the soles of a basketball team's sneakers. This allows that team to be able to do super bounces resulting in the players to reach inhuman heights.

In the sequel "The Son Of Flubber"we see Flubber in another state of matter:gas. The gas is put into a football as well as one player's inflatable suit that he wears underneath his football uniform.

Again,both are rigging the all-American game in favor of one team over another.

I supposed a case could be made for the idea that the players on the opposing team in The Absent Minded Professor were much taller than all the poor little guys playing for Medfield College. That, at least, is some justification for evening the playing field. Very Happy
