I remember playing a game called “Suicide” back at P.S. 99 in the Midwood part of Brooklyn. Whoever had the ball would throw it at the wall, and if someone caught it before it hit the ground the person who threw it would get an “automatic out.” If someone touched the ball and dropped it, that person would have to run towards the wall before they got pegged by someone. Getting pegged was another way to get out. Each out would spell “A-S-S.” Spell it and you had to leave the game. The last person left had the honor of pegging everyone else. There was nothing like being on the good side of that wall.
