Ball explanation please.....

I see so many stories about the balls, I'm confused.

How many balls are there? Tude is posting and so was NeCrO632. Are there two balls? More?

Are the both JSharr's or is one Eboo's or where the hell are they from?

What's the long-term plan? Pass them around the world via Foosters?

One is still stuck in Illinois and has some serious plans to get lost in a maze of maize this weekend. And get drunk on corn mash. And each a corn dog.

Well I know my Ball has been "around" so to say ... been to the beach, crammed in a pelecan sculpture, sitting in the middle of a Mall floor, etc - so I would guess it may have picked up a germy or two

Oh I did a corn maize a few years ago when a couple of forumites from another forum visited ---- cold, damp overcast day ------- and the Ha Ha's quickly wore off. I started using my trailmix like "crumbs" so we could tell where where had been. And after a couple hours - we resorted to cheating. We did most of it but we were cold and miserable ...

OK...ball explaination story:

So jsharr sent me a wonderful CD to listen to/burn several weeks ago. Inside the package with the CD were 4 of the most lovely balls to ever come outside of Texas, in a most wonderful variety of colors. Absolutely overwhelmed, I knew that I could not selfishly hoard mana from the deity known as jsharr.

I offered to mail three of the balls out to fooers across the nation. These offers were quickly accepted by polara, Tude, and NeCrO632. The catch: if I mailed you one, you must post pictures of an adventure with said ball. All three have done splendidly, and some of the balls have already found second homes, with the understanding that adventures and pictures must follow.

I still have the fourth stunning pink ball, but it will very shortly be shipped to gbcb in China I think before I ship it, I am going to bring it with me to to Charlotte this weekend, and take pictures with all the fooers doing the CLT TT on tuesday night. Mayhaps even some drinking action after? And then, I will be looking forward to seeing the ball game go international! Everyone...handle jsharr's balls with care, and do sign it before you mail it on further.

Thanks Eboo....now it all makes sense. I didn't realize until just recently that there were more than one ball.

I'll be getting the ball from NeCrO632, so will take it on some PNW adventures.

Incorrect. He licked one and then took a bite. And I simply brushed my lips lightly against it.
