    Default Minor Sports Can Create Athletic Hustlers

    It was brought to my attention that there are many "minor sports" that can be added here... such as:
    Billiards, Horseshoes, Table Tennis, Badminton, Handball and many more. Some players start out very young and can become those career pool hustlers we here about... like this one:
    This is Keith O'Dell Jr. racking them up.

    He made the news as seen here on this Video.. Please click it on:

    By the time they are seven they can become trick shot artist like this guy.

    Some even becomes actors and hustlers like these guys, Gleason and Newman. Click the thumbnail.... OK?

    Here is another minor sport that has the potential to develop a recreation hustler... often at those town recreation and backyard family horseshoe pits.... Here is one large one that has lights to let you play into evening hours.


    Of course, the usual teams and leagues develop to national status and competitions as seen here at this video sent to me by my sons in Texas... Everything has to be bigger and better.... they say. "Check it out"

    Even some Pittsburgh Steeler players give the fun sport a try... and get hustled..
    Any league players out there? Let us know OK?

    Washer Game play

    The object of the game is to earn points by tossing metal washers, usually around two inches in diameter, toward a hole in a board or box. Washer boxes vary in size and shape, but a standard for one-hole washers is 16 X 16 X 5 inches, with a cylindrically-shaped cup (4 inches in diameter and 4 inches in height) located in its upper surface. Boxes are placed approximately 20 feet away from each other, a distance often determined by a string attached to the front of each box.

    The throwing player stands next to or behind one box and tosses washers toward the other, normally underhand. Scoring is similar to horseshoes in that the second team to throw can wash-out/rebut any points that the first team may have scored, then add to their total. Three points are awarded to a non-rebutted ringer (a washer in the cup). One point is awarded to each non-rebutted washer inside the box. Games are normally played to 21 points.

    This was brought to my attention by the mothers in Wildwood NJ, that have kept the "Marble Competitions" going for many years. No, I haven't lost my marbles.... these ladies know their stuff.

    Competitions on the Wildwood NJ Beach looked like this:

    Yes, the tournaments still going on. Check this Video out...and see how busy they are:

    I am completely against Horseshoe pits in concrete/asphalt. that's just not right. It's like baseball on astro turf. You're supposed to stand on grass/dirt/sand to pitch shoes not concrete. tough to get a good dig in with the lead foot on concrete when pitching horse shoes

    The "MOMS" lead the way and the "DADS" followed in line at the NYC Running Races yesterday pushing their strollers and excercising like this. Here what some looked like:

    Moms lead the way: Followed closely by the Dads pushing the strollers through the same strollercize programs.
    Of course, the Dads didn't just have a baby. ,,, Last years video found, looked like this ... check it out they are all winners.
