Bocce Ball

Tonight I played bocce ball for the first time and I liked it. We played rather unconventionally, no doubt. My team lost. Still, it was a pleasantly engaging game.

We played out back at the office. Some of the time we were in deep St. Augustine grass and sometimes we were on nearly dead weeds over undulating sand made less consistent by ant hills and recent rains. Even that was rather amusing.

I started wondering to myself why I don’t play more games more often. I have some theories about it, but will leave it alone for tonight.

I did get inspired enough to buy a bocce ball app from the iTunes store. It’s pretty fun.

Now I just have to work on the outfit. Any suggestions?

    I’ve only been playing bocce a few years, the group I play with has been playing in the same park for over 20 years. we find the hill shots and the “uneven” ground shots fun. We play every Thursday with a beer in one hand. It’s a great game to socialize.
