Bocce Ball - thought of our court!!
THE PERFECT SHOT
A guy stood ready to make a bocce shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, figuring
the distance, figuring the court conditions, direction and speed ... driving his opponent nuts.
Finally his exasperated opponent says, "What the hell is taking so long? Roll the damned ball!"
The guy answers, "My wife is over there watching me. I want to make this a perfect shot."
"GIVE ME A BREAK! You don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of hitting her from here."
