Foul shooting is about the only thing a reasonably talented weekend warrior could pray to do better than an NBA/D-1 player.

Taking it a step further, foul shooting is about the only thing you can do better than a pro in any sport. Trying to think of something close.

Football? Probably not. Maybe kicking extra points.

Baseball? Nothing.

Hockey? No way

Soccer? Nope

I am guessing you could get good at bowling if you really worked at it.

Baseball, soccer, and hockey are the most comparable because most of the players are required to do all parts of the game.

Saying I can kick an extra point better than an offensive linemen isn't really meaningful because it's not part of their job.

Baseball: I'm fairly certain I can throw better than Johnny Damon or Hunter Pence post shoulder surgery, but that's about it. Hitting is impossible.

Soccer: absolutely not

Hockey: No shot.
