Roman Owen's Moneyball

While attending Tuesday night's NBA playoff game in OKC (Thunder v. Grizzlies), spectator Roman Owen was selected to shoot from halfcourt during a timeout. He not only made the shot, he won $20,000 from the MidFirst Bank. Yowza!

Roman is a former hoops teammate of the youngest Lyman child. The Oklahoman's sports editor does a nice write-up about him and notes Roman's new status as a 'folk hero.' Even Kevin Durant, the Thunder's star, noticed him on his Facebook page.

Here's a quality version of the video.

Congrats, RO! Enjoy your 15 minutes ...
