    My best to Oldtimer.  Is he watching the golf?

    •  He's not a fan, but always says if (5+ / 0-)

      he had been able to be a professional in any sport, he would have picked golf, because any physical damage is caused by the game, not by someone slamming into you. He was 6'5" in high school, weighing 175 lbs. In a small rural high school you had to participate in sports if you were able, and he was center on the basketball team. After high school, and after two years in the Army, he had gained 15 pounds and played "town team basketball for several years, and enjoyed slamming into the former rival players. He has a bad knee to show for it.

      I think, therefore I am, I think.

      •  I commiserate. (3+ / 0-)

        In high school I was 6'4" and weighed about 165 pounds and also was forced to play center in basketball.  My adversaries on other teams tended to be 6'5" or more and at least 200 pounds.  Every once in a while I got to play against guys even shorter than me and had a chance to shoot over the top of them.  My high game was 23, as I recall.
