D.C. teacher spins basketball on pen while grading papers — video

The phrase "Everyone's unique" seems to be not loosing its meaning yet. What you can easily do may be difficult for others, and vice versa. And to start your day with smile, here's a teacher in Washngton D.C that pulled an amazing trick in front of his students. This is amazing, trust me! 

The power of video:  David Hovan, a physics teacher at St. John’s College High School in Washington D.C., starred in the video below in which he literally spins a basketball on a pen while he grades papers.
The Harlem Globetrotters were somehow alerted to the video, and on Thursday, team star Handles Franklin is scheduled to visit Hovan during an AP physics class, where Hovan will talk about physics involved in spinning a basketball on the end of a pen. In return, Hovan will demonstrate his basketball spinning prowess at the Verizon Center on March 15, 2014, when the Globetrotters appear there for a game, according to an e-mail from the Globetrotters.
Here’s the video that started it all:
