    The other day as I was finishing up a round of Golf at Sandwich Hollows Golf Club was coming off and noticed that there were folks playing croquet near the putting green, mondo bizarro thought that croquet was only played in the backyard at barbeques .. Wear white and have clean underwear. Remember your picnic lunch...

    The women were not quite as attractive as the Wayland Auxiliary women.. young??

    I think it's safe to say that none of them were former dental hygienists.

    This talented croquet pro once had a dental hygienist for a best friend:

    I do not see how anybody can say this is not football-related

    Many, many similarities between the WPCL (Women's Professional Croquet League) and the NFL. Concussion issue and cheating scandals, for starters.

    Thanks. It requires persistance and also helps to get started relatively early in the day (that's me in the background practicing my stroke after a double flossing) ...

    Friend of mine thinks baseball could be the new croquet, thoughts?

    Highly doubtful. Baseball has a long way to go before approximating the inherent excitement and intrigue of professional women's croquet. For one thing, you never see anyone falling asleep at a croquet match with its wall-to-wall action from starting whistle to final gun.

    Those of us who have read the novels of Jasper Fforde will know that pro croquet is as violent as the NFL:


    Reviewed by Elizabeth Hand
    Sunday, August 15, 2004; Page BW07

    SOMETHING ROTTEN •

    By Jasper Fforde. Viking. 385 pp. $24.95​

    "The novel's plot -- take a deep breath now -- involves cloned Shakespeares; a dictator who's escaped from a very, very badly written romance novel; a British ban on all things Danish; the prophecies of a lewd 13th-century saint; a contract killer known as the Windowmaker; and the imminent destruction of our entire world in a fiery conflagration. This last, "an apocalyptic disaster of life-extinguishing capabilities Level III" -- can be prevented only if Thursday somehow helps the Swindon Mallets beat the Reading Whackers at the Superhoop Croquet finals."​

    I don't know Tune. I doubt anyone fell asleep when the Sox spanked the Yanks.

    This off-topic thread is beginning to veer seriously off-topic toward something not even remotely related to football. I'll bring us back on course:
