    Did you play? Do you still play?

    Yes on both accounts for me.

    Found some of these from the past...

    Patches! I had patches for a variety of sports. They don't give those out like they did in the 70s and 80s. All my son gets now are cheap, generic medals. I say bring back the patches!

    Still play (though not in about two months), and every bit as badly as I did in the late '70s and '80s.

    My son has played in one tournament I can think of that gave players patches, one of the Schaumburg, IL, tournaments, and he put it straight on the equipment bag. Medals seem to be quickly forgotten (unless they're for a title or a finals appearance).

    Never played as a kid--there weren't a lot of opportunities in rural Nebraska in the 70's. I wasn't very outgoing or athletic so when I went off to college it never occurred to me to try intermural.

    I became a fan in my early 30's (as a kid I'd wanted to play but as noted, there were no options) and a few years later took a chance on playing. Still playing a bit of indoor in my early 50's. I'm pretty bad and my ankles are shot but I still love it.

    I am still playing these days and I found it important to bring my kids to the games even though they are not paying attention. I do not have time to play for a team as there is too much commitment involved. I will go on meetup.com webpage and find a pickup game to play in and I usually play once a week.
    I started to play in the mid 80s in New Jersey when I was about 7/8 years old. Fun times, I wish I can go back into time and do it all over again.
    Man, I used to have hundreds of patches now I have to go digging for those. lol
