If it wasn't for games like: tag, dodgeball, hide and seek, ect... while growing up I don't think we would have been the same people. Let's face
it; say little jimmy is a slow runner and he's always "it" wouldn't he want to run faster? Therefore bettering himself? hide and seek: Little
jimmy is obese (like most childern nowadays) he always is the first kid found, or can never catch the other kids, he wants to loose the weight and
kick -ss at any game he plays. Dodgeball: let's face it... dodgeball is just fun; what other game can you think of where it's okay to thow stuff at
other people, knocking them over, "accidently" throwing it at the bully's . and making him cry for once?
It seems to me that the liberal media and "protective parents" all want the same thing... a sissified generation. where it's okay to be fat*, not
to fight back when somebody pushes you around, or not to ask questions and just take everything at face value.
The rapid decline of our society as a whole astounds me. These games inspire the youngsters to get phyically fit, keeps them active and in certain
cases builds a sense of teamwork and co-operation.
* because of the fear of hurting people's feelings let me just say that i never really like be politically correct. It is another way that we're
being controlled. But if i did offend you it wasn't my intent.
