Sen. Scott Brown's Half-Court Shot Took 5 Tries

Scott Brown's campaign posted video of the Massachusetts Senator sinking a half court short at a campaign event at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center a week ago.

Today, a closer look from The Boston Globe's Glen Johnson revealed that the video wasn't quite what it seemed. It turns out Brown didn't sink the shot on first attempt, but rather made it on the fifth try, an aide confirmed to Johnson.

Brown's not the first politician to take several shots before making a basket. At an event in April President Obama took seven shots before sinking the ball at a "Shoot for Strength" activity held during the White House Easter Egg Hunt.
