The Hilarious Game of Exhaust Ball (with video!)


Margo:  So you saw this game at the baseball stadium when you took the kids on Saturday? [Thanks to our neighbor John for the free tickets]



Mr. Thrift: Yeah, but they made us wait in line for 10 minutes only to tell us that we needed a wristband to play the games.  And Ben cried.  So we took our balls and went home.  Well, we didn't actually have balls there.

Margo:  You have balls now.  Tell me what you did today while I was at my job.



Mr. Thrift:  I bought 6 solid plastic training balls, not whiffle balls.  I tried using that old fan from an air hockey table, but the air wasn't strong enough.  Then I hooked my shop-vac hose up to the exhaust hole and wedged the hose between 2 rocks.

Margo:  And?  And?

Mr. Thrift:  You see the results!  It's tee-ball without the tee!



Margo:  Wow, it's fun!

Ha! I love this idea. My son is heading out to the the garage for the shop vac as we speak :)

A follow-up note from Mr. Thrift: It's a good idea to thoroughly clean the shop-vac and hose before doing this. *cough, cough*

Margo said...

dear Mr. Thrift, I did think this morning that we could use the indoor vacuum sweeper as it would be cleaner.
