Ruess, who sings in the band fun., owners of one of the year's biggest hits "We Are Young," has just finished assembling a portable basketball hoop outside the band's tour bus.<p>It's ironic, he notes, since the stage he'll play on later that night is exactly where a basketball hoop would be if the Shrine were set up as the basketball arena it sometimes is. For a touring band, the hoop is a luxury only the successful can afford.
