Dear Yoda,
Are you pooping on me?
People make fun if me - they tell me I have an "Upstate New York" accent.
Well, just because I say "keht" for cat and "hehp-ee" for happy ( how do you phonetically spell an Upstate New York accent?) doesn't mean that I make fun of people's accents. And just because I say "pop" for a glass of Coke or Pepsi, and call those stretchy things rubber bands instead of elastics, and call those sandwiches subs instead of hoagies or torpedoes, doesn't mean that I am culturally deprived, either.

I know a certain beautiful lady who calls those things on ice cream - "shots"

But I'll never go away from sprinkles baby!! - the chocolate ones are "jimmies"

And if you hear someone call those long sandwiches "po-boys" you must be visitin' relatives down south!<P>------------------

OK, good. We've separated ourselves into the appropriate geographies. Now for the next question: What do you call the salmon-colored rubber balls that city kids used to play stickball and boxball with? Spell it accurately or phonetically.<P>And anyone besides me who remembers playing "5-box", one of the great sidewalk skill games of all time, raise your hand.<P>------------------

In my neighborhood, those were "Spaldeens", a phonetic garbling of "Spalding", who was the only supplier I ever found at Smitty's Sport and Tackle shop.<P>On the corner of Hylan and Heinz, that is. Block up from the water.<P>The best was when you got one that had been floating in the sewer for a while -- the denisty of the soaked half changed so much you could throw a 75-foot curve or put a wobbly bounce into a pitch that no stick could catch up with.<P>'Course, right after that, you'd get beat up.<P>------------------

We used to play "hotbox" it was two bases one base runner, and two basemen. You tried to see how many times you could go back and forth without one of the basemen hitting, or tagging you with the ball.<P>------------------

After that YOU'D get beat up.

Speak for yourself there bud.


'Course I've never played stick ball, so I'm really not one to comment. I have however played Barnball, thanks to AccordionDad.

Such a strange, silly-strange game.<P>------------------

I suspect I did get beaten a little more regularly than Johnski. And I deserved a beating MUCH more regularly than Johnski.<P>Still no one recalling 5-box? What were the games played in the lands where sidewalks weren't the fields of play?<P>------------------

By the way, What's the next title above Keenspotter Supreme, and how many Keenspotters to you have to out-shout to obtain it? Not that I'm competitive or anything....<P>------------------
