When you are a college student, and the pace of the semester is speeding up toward finals week, sometimes you have to stop and have a serious game of Catch The Falling Leaf with your youngest brother.
It doesn't take long, AND it gets you running and laughing and soaking up some fresh air instead of bending over the ol' desk.
This season has seen the addition of a defensive game, including (but not limited to) shoving the Catching Competitor out of the path of the falling leaf, or going directly for the leaf and slapping it out of the way. No tackle, but every year the rules are new and improved. We'll see what the 2011 season brings.
It was a win for the big brother this time. A hard-fought, joyous victory!
