Past Words of the Day

The unique Cincinnati way of saying 'pardon me?'

1. Children's street game of bygone days, involving pink Spalding (or "spaldeen") ball and broomstick. Now sadly defunct.

2. A street game that resembles baseball, played with a broomstick and a "spaldeen" ball. The game was also played in Jersey, but is largely just a thing of the past. (At least in New York -- you can still find kids playing such games, often called "ba-te" in the streets of Latin American countries.)

Dubbed "Touchdown Jesus" by Notre Dame alumni, "The Word of Life," constructed by Millard Sheets, is a mural on the face of the university's Hesburgh Library.
