Eric Vs. concrete

So I had this huge ball of cement/concrete that held a basketball hoop pole in place. The previous owner of my house put it there and it is as if he used an entire 3 yard cement truck to secure it in place. He even filled the pole with cement; hurricane proof?

I had been hitting it with a 16lb sledge hammer for a bout two months. I hadn't made much progress so it was time to get serious. I rented a 30 lb electric jack hammer:

In about an hour and a half I reduced it to a pile of rubble and two bigger halves, freeing the pole.

I know what I want for Christmas! No one is a man until they have handled on of these babies!!
