Back Lane Battleships (TM)

Today, it rained rather well, Vancouver style, in fact it still is. Joel and I have times when we enjoy the rain. If you've been around this blog for a while, you may remember "Rain never stops play". Well today we invented a brand new 'back lane rain game', to allow mom a little space to exist indoors without us throwing things at her and Ollie.
First we each select a sea (puddle) at least 10ft apart in the back lane. Into our sea we place our battleship (6-8" long, plastic boat, yellow in colour for good visibility). We each stand at least 1 foot behind our sea. The game is to kick a football (full size, English) at each other's boat. One hit=1 point.
Joel won, straight sets, 10-6, 5-2
