Handball is one of the best individual sports ever devised. And yet, the sport now has a pile of problems. Let’s look at its positive points first. For hundreds of years the sport of handball has been an exciting, ultra fast and highly competitive activity played by skilled and dedicated athletes. It’s also a relatively inexpensive sport as well; meaning, it doesn’t cost a fortune to play, such as with golf and many other games. For equipment, all one needs, besides a pair of good athletic shoes, is a small, hard rubber ball and a pair of handball gloves to protect the hands. And it’s a wonderful sport to keep you in shape because the action is intense and almost non-stop. A game or two will give you a real workout.

I finally admitted such to my interrogative pal, which made him quite happy. “It was Frank Charles,” he laughingly proclaimed. “He was the organist for both teams.”

Bowling a 300 game has been an extremely difficult achievement to attain, sort of like getting a hole in one in golf. At least it used to be. Apparently, it’s not so hard to do anymore.
