Do you just mean ball games? Stick ball, box ball, Russian Ball, War, punch ball, stoop ball, hit-the-stick, dodge ball, basketball, hand ball, catcher-flyer-up...
Kick the can.
Jacks. We had tournaments on the playground during recess. I was pretty good. I also liked to hula hoop.
Oh my gosh...we played so many games...hard to remember. We had 2-block it, freeze tag, kick the can, all the sports--football, softball, baseball--then the politically incorrect games...N-word pile. That's where we'd yell that so and so was the n-word and then everyone would jump on top of that person. Unbelievable, isn't it? Don't tell anyone I was so politically incorrect in my youth, please.
I remember one stick ball game really well. But maybe I shouldn't remind you of that.
Grace, that is a regular compendium of ball games. I think I played only three of these.Chuck, that was one of my favorite games. To be played after sundown.Lin, different day and age. The best thing about those games-- it did not require a long list of rules and adult supervision. I seem to recall that we kids worked out our difference.Vee, I wast thinking of that very game when i wrote this. I shall never forget and shall always be sorry. But it was accidental.
Vanilla, at least you panicked and were upset. That made me feel loved.
