Here's what's old on Streetplay
Dear Streetplay readers,

March is coming in like a lion, at least as far as Streetplay is
concerned.  Our March additions will keep you happy, even if
your alma mater's team drops from the NCAA hoops tournament in
the first round!

Streetplay Contests
Our first contest was such a success that we've decided to run
some more.  This is your chance to win cash by sharing your
memories with us.  Take your pick: "April Fools' best prank" or
"Opening Day best story."  If you win, you'll get $50, and we'll
donate $50 to the children's charity of your choice.  Use the
following links to get the lowdown:

Opening day:

Enter right now!  Don't forget to read the winning contestants'
stories in our first contest, "Your First Kiss":

Streetplay Presidential Pentathlon 2000
The presidential campaign is getting nastier as each day passes,
so we're taking the trash talk out of the debate hall and
putting in the gutter where it belongs. Read our fanciful
accounts of macho competitions like John McCain's hopscotch
triumph, Bush knuckling down in marbles, and Bradley proving
who's off the wall in handball.

March game of the month: Jumping rope
Does the rhyme "Strawberry shortcake, cream on top / Tell me the
name of your sweetheart" mean anything to you?  If it does, you
probably know what "double dutch" is too--jump in and read about
our featured game of the month, jumprope.

Stickball Hall of Fame: El Barrio
Spanish Harlem... Ben E. King made it famous in song in 1961,
but as far as "El Barrio" stickball players are concerned, they
made it great first.  East Harlem has long been a vibrant
Hispanic community known for its influence on Latin music and
dance, but it remains "stickball territory," the home of some of
the game's best players and teams.

City Play: Stoops
A: "This New York City architectural feature originated in the
Netherlands to prevent house flooding."  Q: "What is a stoop,
Alex?"  When you're on Jeopardy and you get this one right, you
can thank our latest City Play feature for helping you!

The Streetplay Galleries: Go fly a kite
March is a great month to fly kites.  We show you kids from all
over the world doing just that in our newest gallery.

Hey everybody, it's March.  Get out there and play!

-Thanks again!
 Mick Greene, CEO
