Sometimes people will ask me what I think about being a teacher; what’s the best part?  My humorous answer, when appropriate, usually involves pizza on Friday with chocolate milk.  If not that, I’ll ask, “Who wouldn’t want a job with recess every day?”

Apparently, I’m on to something.

Grown-up PE Class Has Adults Reliving Childhood” is an article by Holly Ramer that is out on the AP wire right now.

It sounds like fun, but I’m not sure about a game called “Spastic Ball.”  Maybe that’s a fourth grade game.

My favorite quote: “At Old School P.E., there are some concessions made for age, says Pettinicchio, who vetoed one commissioner’s plan to play Red Rover because “we felt pulling shoulders out of bodies at 35 or 40 years of age is not a good thing.””

Indeed.
