The game they play is fundamentally the same as the schoolyard version: One player is “It” until he tags someone else. But men in their 40s can’t easily chase each other around the playground, at least not without making people nervous, so this tag has a twist. There are no geographic restrictions and the game is live for the entire month of February. The last guy tagged stays “It” for the year.
That means players get tagged at work and in bed. They form alliances and fly around the country. Wives are enlisted as spies and assistants are ordered to bar players from the office.
THIS IS THE GREATEST STORY I’VE READ ALL DAY. IT’S LIKE AN EPISODE OF HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER BUT BETTER BECAUSE THIS STORY HAS A CONCRETE ENDING.
“What they didn’t know was Sean Raftis, who was “It,” had flown in from Seattle and was folded in the trunk of the Honda Accord. When the trunk was opened he leapt out and tagged Mr. Tombari, whose wife was so startled she fell backward off the curb and tore a ligament in her knee.
“I still feel bad about it,” says Father Raftis, who is now a priest in Montana. “But I got Joe.”“
I STILL FEEL BAD ABOUT IT, SAYS FATHER RAFTIS.

why are they dressed in lederhosen?? I don’t know but I love it
… huh! That is an excellent question! It was an “opera” — are they trying to put it in the Germanic operatic tradition of Mozart, Beethoven and (gulp) Wagner? Or following that last one, it is also about an oppressive monarchy that restricts access to flatware — is this alluding to particularly notorious German fascist regimes??? Or do they just want to make it look like the Sound of Music??? MR. ROGERS, SO MANY QUESTIONS.
