Description
Photograph caption dated June 13, 1987 reads, "Magic Johnson, faced the reigning Nerf-ball champ, Scott DuVal of Chicago, last night at the Red Onion in Beverly Hills. DuVal held his title when Magic missed his last shot, a (sound familiar?) hook. Said DuVal: 'I told him not to get nervous because he was playing on a parquet floor.'" DuVal won the trophy for the "Great Shooters" contest sponsored by Southern Comfort at the restaurant.
