    Is it ovoid, round, big, small, hard or soft or do you play Frisbee?

    My balls are big, soft (cough cough) and round, thank you very much. I play basketball at the local YMCA's in my county. Pierce county in Washington State if you want to stalk me or challenge me to a one on one.

    I don't do sports, I'm pretty unfit. I'm sure the army will change that soon enough :oldtongue:

    I always like big balls but I don't get fantasized about them. I love playing others e.g shooting games, which are more fantastic!

    Ghetto kids play basketball.
    Some go to regular colleges and play football
    Some go to Ivy League colleges and play baseball or tennis.
    Some go on to be business executives and play golf.
    Clearly, the richer you are, the smaller your balls.

    I hear that Donald Trump doesn't think that's funny.

    Give me a reason why I need to play with you. :wink:

    Soccer is my sport, sometimes tennis

    I've always really not enjoyed "ball sports". They just seem to lack something which can hold my interest.

    The torus, on the other hand, makes for a beautiful piece of apparatus which I've started to become obsessed with.

    I don't think hockey pucks constitute as balls, but they're round!

    Time for me to go sit in the corner and think about what I just said

    So I'm not hijacking the thread... I played with a lot of "snow balls" during my snow plowing time at MDT, I was just a storm temp, but it was kinda fun... :oldsmile:

    I used to have one of those, but I broke it and couldn't put it back together again. There were always some pieces left over...

    Soccer balls are best.

    But, pool balls are a pretty good substitute - especially in the winter.

    As an oldster, I've loved playing soccer, american football, tennis, bocce, billiards/pool, and bowling.
    My latest love has been of the "volley" type.

    I really have no idea why people get upset when I say I have a love of playing with balls.
