I tried to knock someone out of the court once and nailed my foot. It hurt something awful. Typically when I play with my brother it's full contact. He has years of being the little brother to take out on me.

I know it. I'm always looking for a challenge, and with the exception of my age, I am an old person. I enjoy people watching, playing board games, and talking about how things were different when I was a kid.
Why, back in the 80's it's all anyone did.
