    Come On People! :eek: :eek: :eek:


    The New York Dept. of Health is considering a plan to label games likes kickball, wiffleball, tag and horseshoes as dangerous to children - and any day camp that offered those activities would require local and state regulation.

    New York State Sen. Patty Ritchie said it's the most ridiculous law she's ever heard.

    "Once again, it's a knee-jerk reaction," Ritchie told the Poughkeepsie Journal disputing the notion that the games are dangerous and "pose a significant risk of injury" to kids.

    Absolutely rediculous!! This is why kids are staying indoors, on the computer, or game console becoming lathargic and obese. I swear sometimes I wonder if the powers that be are intentionally ruining the generations after them...

    Its called law suits. They are covering their asses.My guess is they don't want to have to carry insurance for it. All sports have inherent risks of injury or death.

    Tag? How the hell do you injure yourself playing tag?
    Have I been doing wrong all these years? Are you supposed to throw and elbow or lead with your shoulder?

    It is a contact game... sport by another name.

    I can see it now. Johnny is running after Tom, tags him and knocks him down in the process. Tom puts out his hand to catch himself and breaks his wrist along with landing on his face and knocks out his front teeth.

    LAW SUIT!

    Hold on, hold on.

    Once bones are broken and teeth are lost..

    THEN

    It's a sport.

    Since I have never ever ever, and I mean NEVER EVER, met or heard of a kid that did little more than stub a toe or twist an ankle playing tag, I'm still gonna say this is non-sense.
