Like millions of Americans, I watched a few bowl games in the past few weeks or so. I was struck by something a commentator said during whatever bowl Ohio State played in. He spoke of a player that was back on the field after two suspensions.
I would have understood if he’d been suspended for missing curfew or a team meeting. Getting suspended for being arrested in a bar fight would have been understandable, as well. But, this brother was suspended once for selling his own memorabilia and once for accepting money for a job that it was determined he didn’t attend enough.
Over the last five years or so, retirees who winter in the south have been bringing a new sport back home with them. It’s called “PICKLEBALL”
Pickleball is a unique activity for all ages. Similar to many other racquet games such as badminton, tennis, racquetball, and table tennis, Pickleball is played on a court about one-third the size of a tennis court. It is played indoors and out, requires very little in expense or equipment, and is great for those who have a few aches and pains from years of tennis, racquetball or squash.
