    I remember them back in the eighties. Usually lost their appeal round about Xmas, for some reason.

    The heavyweight boxing division. If AJ went in with Tyson he’d be out cold some time in the 1st or 2nd.

    HAHA, reminds of the Monty Python sketch World hide and seek championship. Goes something like:
    "After 26 years, 7 months, 17 days, 11 hours, and 8 seconds the World hide and seek championship is a draw."
    "The replay begins tomorrow at 10:00 am."

    Sorry - a bit late .. but yes, you're correct ... you could only hit the ball with the handle, you couldn't move your feet (which had to be together) and the "bowler" got you 'out' by hitting your legs from the knee down. Should be in the Olympics! Good times!!
