base hoop boy

Harvey is a little confused about sports terminology. Baseball seems to be the template of all sports for him, so when he noticed basketball hoops for the first time he decidedly called them "base hoops" and so they have remained in his lexicon for several months now.

At first I thought he was saying "space hoops" because they were so high up. But when I asked him "space hoop?" he said with a laugh "NOOOOO!"

A basketball is a "base hoop ball."

He declared to Dan recently during a game of catch "We're base hoop men!"

Of course, this can go a little to far. When Harvey re-found his baseball glove he looked at it for a while and then said excitedly, "It's! it's! uh... It's my base hoop mitten!"
