Sometimes it seems like athletes’ extreme bodies and extreme skills are uniquely suited for the games they play. Other times, you get stories like this one: In the ’70s, a zoo in California faced disaster when a bottlenose dolphin swallowed a screw, and the screw got lodged way deeper in its digestive system than any instrument or human arm could reach.
But wait … what about a gigantic human? One of the zoo employees just happened to know Golden State Warriors center Clifford Ray, who just happened to be at home recovering from an injury. A eureka moment and some good luck led to a very strange dolphin rescue, and a very good story for Clifford Ray.
