      UCLA has had a juggler with the team in this year's NCAA basketball
      tournament. He performed during timeouts and was occasionally shown on
      TV. Here are a couple of comments I found about him on the ESPN website:

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      SMARTEST MAN ON THE COURT: UCLA's juggler, who's very good in his own
      right, but clearly only "joined" the cheerleading squad to be able to
      perform three feet from the dancers.

      3. The worst thing that happened to UCLA during the first 8 minutes
      and 34 seconds of the Florida game was:

      A: Its male cheerleaders appeared on the floor. Men in powder blue
      polyester.
      B: All-America guard Arron Afflalo committed three fouls.
      C: In a Final Four first (and God willing, last), a UCLA-approved
      juggler performed during a timeout.
      D: The Bruins could only convert 2-of-11 field goal attempts.

      Answer: B.

      Afflalo's three fouls cost the Bruins their best player for 15 minutes
      of the first half (three fouls, zero points -- and he didn't start the
      second half). But the NCAA needs to address the juggler thing. A
      suggestion: I pose the death penalty if it happens again.

        Here's some more info, Allison:

        The juggler guy's name is Chris Smith. He is a UCLA student that plays with the band. He gets a little stipend, too. For any college students out there, you might want to approach the band and see if you can do this in your school. It's a good change to perform in front of large audiences, travel around the country, and see if bunch of games, doing what you like doing, anyway.
