i wrote a song… in my mind

new game, new rules

with one comment

i played racquetball for the first time today.  it’s really fun.  what i’ve heard from other people is that you have to throw everything that you know about tennis away.

kind of true.  tennis is a much simpler game.  you just aim for a spot and hit it there, and when it comes back, you hit it back.

not so with racquetball.  if you aim for a spot, you gotta factor in the bounce, the 6 sides of the room, angle, relative velocity (when you’re running in the same direction the ball is traveling), force, spin, avoid getting hit by the ball, avoiding the other person in the room with you, and much more.  such a crazy sport.  i thought, shoot, i see old people doing this all the time, i can do this no problem.

i think i got tennis elbow from playing racquetball.  i’ve never had tennis elbow before after playing tennis for over 10 years and i get it from playing one game of racquetball.  curse you…

p.s. because the racquet is much shorter than a tennis racquet, i look like a fool whiffing the ball expecting my super short racquet to reach it.
