Go South of the Border
Pretty sure there were cousins among the Mexicans, though I
can't recall specifics. Who remembers the hilarious lack of
ability to communicate with them. Seemed like Gary was the only
staff that spoke Spanish for my first several summers.

Bobbo's Bad Break
Dear Gang, I'm not proud to admit it, but...I think I take the
award for most serious injury at the reunion. After two weeks
of going through a number of diagnostic procedures, I have
discovered that what I thought (and was told) was a separated
shoulder has turned out to be a C5-C6 disc herniation with a
right upper extremity radiculopathy. In other words, one of my
vertebral discs is impinging on my spinal cord! Yikes. So,
Bobbo Komisar, Steve Lebau, your injuries hold nothing against
mine. Boy, I must be pretty competitive comparing my injury to
someone else's. Maybe I need therapy! Lucky for Mike Cohen he
had us sign waivers. I knew that his driver was going too fast
when I fell. I guess that's the end of my backward barefoot
days. Oh well, there's always frontwards. That's about all from
here. Been hard to concentrate on much else lately. Hope to
recover and be ready to take on the 45's and under at the 50th
reunion! By the way, maybe I aggravated my shoulder striking
out Donnie P. and his cronnies!! Later, Bobbo

RE: Racehorse Name/Bobbo
How about "Sucker?" If that's not appropriate, "JeffMoss."
Bobbo, your condition sounds far worse than that of David Gast
back in 1979.

Hey Guys, I'll kick in, but only if I can get one of those 150%

I strongly urge both Rick and Jeff to give up their respective
careers and pursue the vacant coaching positions at IU. They
already have the fiery intensity and know the intricacies of
ball. As to whom will be head coach, they can fight it out.

years by just telling the kids that are there to play hard and

I think the name of the horse should be Ibbit. I would also
have a wrestle-off with Pud for the right to be the jockey;
after all, I was foaled in Kentucky. Haven't checked the CA for
awhile, but "Jungle" Jim Goldstein was the main conduit of
communication to our campers from south of the border; they
affectionately called him "Yeeeeeeem". Also, our old pal Brian
Lif-thic. Bobbo, sorry to hear about your injury, and although
it is worse than those pantywaists Lebau and Komisar, is it
worse than the "fractured driver side lateral fibia red-icuss
door-icuss" of Pud's car? Hope you all are well. Bobby

Manhole Covers / Mr. Pud, Sr.
I collect manhole covers (primarily gold, silver or ones made
out of check or cash), so those of you who have such covers,
please ship to me (collect); I'll pre-pay the freight. Wholly
unrelated thereto, Mr. Pud, Sr. (a/k/a Mickey) undergoes
several hours of thyroid removal surgery Thurs., Sept. 14th. At
age 77, he doesn't want some mthrfcker slashin' his throat, but
I'm sure he'll come thru it fine. Throw a keylog in the fire

What's the worst injury any of you received at camp? My second
worst ocurred in 1972 when Pete Cannon nailed me with a batted
ball during intermediate softball practice...I had a black eye
that lasted all summer. My top injury happened in 1979 when I
took a bunch of kids miniature golfing; after making a great
shot, I lept off the green in joy...landing awkwardly and
severely sprained my ankle. A bunch of 10 year-olds had to help
me back to the car (how humiliating is that?!). Being in the
middle of summer, I never let it properly heal and it bothered
me for years. I refer to it as my "sports-related"

Third degree burn. See March, 2000 Central Area archive for
details. Let me tell ya, it sucked.

Slalom skiing wipeout. My right knee slammed into the left side
of my face. I ended up with 5 stitches right along the crease
of my nose where it had started to pull away from my cheek. As
I recall, it got me out of a few days of teaching tennis.

Broken arm 1st summer, 1972. Fell off a horse, Peaches.
Compound fracture. Bone sticking out of skin. The best part was
when H and I went to the guy who owned the farm. H was afraid
that the guy would sue him for trespassing becasue the
ambulance had to drive in the guy's field to get to me. Coach
coaches me, "now look sad and pretend you are in a lot of pain.
I don't want to get sued! Make dis guy feel sorry for you. Hey,
hey hey, I'll buy you a malt if I dont't get sued." He still

Tripping on Minnows
Also, I remember Jeff Moss and Robby Schills were hurt tripping
on the minnows at Crystal.

Washed up at age 20
Supervising CTM's setting up the Wreck Hall, something came
over me and I chose to take one end of a bench. As is commonly
done by even Intermediate Village campers, I went to pick it ip
with one hand. After raising it a full inch off the ground, my
back gave out. I was hunched over for hours and out of
commission for days. And Gazoo, if you want Meadow to start
talking injuries, maybe you should set some sort of limit
(maybe top 5 or 10).

My worst Timber injury
I suppose I should feel fortunate because Rozy, JMoss & I
escaped with pretty minor injuries after getting the crap
kicked out of us at Dinks. Injuries: lost Peter's denim jacket
(and a nickel bag inside), lost face with the Pinemere babes we
were bringing back to camp (they still came back to the Trip
Shack for a while), and to add insult to injury, Harold fined
us when he figured out that we missed our curfew.

work...Rob, relative to your bout at Dink's, I think you also
developed a fat lip and a "snaggletooth."

Gazzoo thanks for the clean-up! AWWWWWWW JayMoss sorry to hear
about your broken heart....appreciate your vulnerability! My
