And I still do. Lots of ’em.
From base to basket to foot to billiard to golf to nerf to soft, there was not a ball that didn’t bounce around the Brooks house somewhere.
But the best ball was the simple rubber ball. You could play with it indoors or outside. It dramatically reduced potential for broken windows. And when no one else was around, you could play catch with yourself by throwing it against the side of the house.
The Ball takes it place alongside The Stick and The Cardboard Box in the Hall of Fame.
And if they’re open to suggestions, I nominate The Rock.
