I’m between 6’3″ and 6″7″ depending on which convenience store I’m leaving.  Joking aside, I’m exactly 6’5 and 3/4″ tall and yes, I did play basketball.  The extent of my basketball career was playing for a college in Australia, but it’s really not a big deal there.  College sports in Australia are more like extracurricular clubs so it doesn’t say much about my playing ability.  However, the extra height does make me the likely choice to wear the costume when reenacting Bigfoot cases.
