Michael Hicks invented Utube Game Game in September 22nd, 1999. He continuously explained to beginners how to keep the U shape so that the ball would launch up and out to keep it in play and easily caught. So by default he called it Utube to remind people to keep the U shape, and, it literally is, a U shaped Tube. So what else was he to call it. So when you think about the Original Utube, think Utube Game.
What began as dryer hose and golf ball evolved into many expressions of art.
