Ahhhh, yes. We also called "Smear the Queer". What an awesome game. Didja ever notice that the people trying to ban these playground games are either women, or limp-wristed poofter types? I'd bet not a one has had the pleasure of being the first to tackle the guy with the ball and then have about twenty of your classmates pile on top of you. Man, those were fun days....

I remember those days well. In fact, I was often the one who ended up on the receiving end of a lot of the old games. But I refuse to join the limp-writs and the soccer moms in condemming these games. Those games taught me a VERY important lesson....that losing is a real possibility and that losing sucks! How else is someone supposed to figure out that life is not obligated to be fair?
Todays kids had better grow up to have a thirst for knowledge and a hunger for success...because they aren't going to learn any of these things during their childhood.
you beat me to it! (see post 16) Another favorite was King of Hill where you kick everybody off of the dirt mound.
Yeah buddy! Smear the quear was the best game ever. I couldn't throw or catch worth beans, but I sure could run...
