Stupid, funny things.

13 June 2005


I love playing Bocce. It is amazing how moch fun you can have with a few people and a bunch of balls. It is kind of like playing horse shoes except that there is a moving target and you can choose what that target is. Real Bocce has rules that you have to follow and a actual court. We have modified the rules a bit so as to make it a bit more interesting.

We go to a park or whatever and the person with the pallino gets to choose where he wants to through it. That is difference. In the real game there is a court and you have to through the pallino in between two lines.

Anyway, all you need to do to get a game of Bocce going is a good set and a few friends. You can buy one on amazon.

So there you go. For more information go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bocce

I could really use a good set of office Bocce balls. My new job is in a classic cubicle land. It would be great for doing some tricky ricochet maneuvers off the cardboard walls, down the stairs and around the copy-machine.
