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 head 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.
