    LOL, yeah, I mean that slow game where you actually have to run to get to a ball that doesn't bounce around like a junkie on speed who found a forgotten stash.

    Ouch...Just can't keep up with that really fast blue ball huh? And they can really hurt when they plaster your butt at 150 MPH. So I don't blame you for not playing.. Lol.

    Thats fun too. When I get back someday I'll have to slow it down which is better anyway on the old body.

    How many times have you been hit in the head then?


    Anyhoo...
    Squash will probably be an Olympic sport soon - how many people outside the US even know the 'sport' racquetball exists?

    I use to play it daily and still do on occasion.I prefer its cousin,handball these days.I find it more challenging.Also, a wild swing from my opponent does not mean a racket in my teeth!Been there done that!
