Here's what's old on Streetplay
Dear Streetplay readers,
Here in New York, March is going out like a lamb, but it seems that very little else in our world is as mild. While we may be engrossed in news of a war being fought in a distant land, we want hope to "Spring" eternal once again as the seasons change. Maybe our new edition of Streetplay Today will bring a smile and help you relax a bit by recalling some simpler times.
Kite flying is perhaps the single most universal form of play, seen in nearly all cultures. Our new kite section introduces you to this world of play, provides online resources for kite wannabes, and shows the beauty of the sport with lots of pictures.
Keeping in theme, we're happy to present the latest edition of this Streetplay-exclusive comic strip, from the high-flying mind of Donald Jefferes. And kids out there... please don't try what these guys are doing!
The weather is finally getting warmer. It smells nice. And, luckily, it happens every year! Spring Fever can make you do memorable things--share your favorite story with us, and you might win $50. While you're at it, look at the winners of our last contest, Favorite Holiday Memories.
On February 16, 2003, William Safire wrote about the use of childhood game terminology in the political rhetoric of the Iraqi war. In closing, he cited Streetplay to explain the game of ringoleavio. Read Mr. Safire's column and see what you think about this timely topic.
Carlos Velázquez, a teacher in Spain, has researched the childhood games of his native land and shared his work with us. He's found over 25 different games--that should keep you busy!

The MSBL has been serving the "fast-pitch" stickball community for years in NYC and its outlying suburbs. It's about time that we told you more about them.
We've teamed with CafePress.com to bring you a line of Streetplay-branded items. From sweats to clocks, we bet you'll find something you'll like. Try out both our Street Gear and Big Blue Handball specialty collections! As always, our regular store provides links to our fine affiliate merchants, like Amazon.com.
Peace to all.
