redbankgreen came upon the odd sight Friday evening of 17-year-old Mario Oldani making a rubber-band ball in front of the Broadway Diner on Monmouth Street.
Inspired by a friend who created one earlier in the week, Mario started an orb that quickly eclipsed his friend’s in size, he says.
“You never really think about making one until you see one,” says the 17-year-old Red Bank Regional senior, “and then you’ve gotta have one.”
Now, his goal is to make an elastic-band sphere the size of a basketball. A photographer, Mario says he’ll send us a picture of the finished product.
Bring it on, dude. We’ve got the, um, bandwidth.
