I remeber playing a SPALDEEN GAME in the 60’s. We called it “A my name is” How is worked was that you would bounce the ball to “A my name is alice and my husband’s name is Al, we come from Alabama and we sell apples.”. Each time an “A” word was mentioned you had to cross your leg over the ball while bouncing it. You would continue with the whole alphabet. You would either miss crossing over the ball for one of the words, couldn’t figure out a name beginning with the letter, or miss the ball completely.
