last moment you are holding it only by the knob.  Generally the release is
from just the thumb and the side of the index finger.

BUT!!!  when you throw albert passes which leg do you go under.  Treblas
are self-explanatory, but do you throw a right handed albert pass under
your right leg?  this would seem to make the most passing sense, but that
throw seems incredibly awkward.  mebbe I'm just confused and need to
juggle more

I don't think it much matters.  The Albert passes are really more like
symmetrical.  You might think of one originating from in front of the body
as coming directly up, over the center of the back, and one thrown from
behind, comes directly between the legs.  On this latter, there is a
tendency to throw it hard and fast - warn your catcher!
