Never could get double dutch either – also from Brooklyn. But jumping rope was a lot of fun. I remember the first time I was able to jump into the rope from the outside. It was some kind of timing issue. Some people looked so cool while they stood there getting ready to join in the game. Any one play chinese jump rope? If so how? Did you make chinese jump ropes out of lots of found rubber bands? Did you use double or single ropes?
