    We might be watching Euro 2008 here in the UK but seeing as there are NO “home” teams there we aren’t that interested. (Other than hoping that the Dutch win it)

    I’ve seen kids playing volleyball at recess in the Smicksburg area quite a few times. They always turn and wave to you as you go by.

    Seems like volleyball is the major sport of choice around my neck of the woulds. I’ve seen some Amish youth working at and watching local high school foot ball games (I have a teenager in high school).

    I probably mentioned this one before – but back during the Nikel Mines tragedy CNN was interviewing a former Amish gentleman out in Indiana. Ultimately they got around to asking him why he left the Amish and he said it was because he wanted to play organized basketball in High School and college. Couldn’t help but smile to myself at that one – a guy after my own heart!

    Hey Erik-
    Hope you’re well. Over on this side of the pond, ABC just started airing a documentary following 4 Amish teens through rumspringa–and they happen to be 4 teens from the Schwartzentruber Amish of Ashland County. I was pretty shocked when I realized where they filmed this. So far it’s pretty well done and seems fairly balanced. I just hope they maintain that standard–for the kids’ sake and the community.
    Best,
    Melissa
