Silicon Valley Geeks Bring Back Classic Game

By: Ben Preiss - Published: • References: sfgate
When I was a kid in Jersey, we called this game "Box Ball". Whatever you choose to call it, it's always entertaining to see what Silicon Valley's geek-elite do to amuse themselves when they're away from their PCs. "Four Square" actually requires physical effort, some coordination, and it involves a ball -- three things the classic geek avoided in the past. Maybe, behind the safety of their corporate walls, and in the company of other geeks, they can finally let loose! Maybe this will give them the opportunity to pursue the playground game that, in their youth, would have lead to some very painful atomic wedgies. Stats for Four Square Trending: Older & Mild
