Missionary Handbook and Basketball
PolarVortex posted a topic in General DiscussionI'm fairly sure that the missionaries will be coming to my house in 2015 to visit, so I've been sniffing around the Internet lately and reading random things about LDS missionaries. I came across a 2006 on-line edition of the Missionary Handbook today and read it out of curiosity. (I converted to the Church as a thirtysomething and never served a mission, but I've always been interested in what it's like to serve a mission.) Most of the instructions seem reasonable, such as "do not handle explosives" and "do not tamper with your mission vehicle's odometer" and even "notify your mission president if your companion leaves you." The carrying of guns is also prohibited. But this edition of the Handbook has one curious instruction: "If you play basketball, play only half court." Why is the playing area of any significance? Is this to prevent missionaries from developing unhealthy passions for competitive sports activities that might distract them from their Gospel duties?
Flagrant Fragrant FoulsMaybe I'm just old, but I don't remember flagrant fouls being part of strategy in the glorious game of basketball. NBA: more education on flagrants may be needed - NBA - Yahoo! Sports What ever happened to just being good enough to score points? I learned basketball back in the good old days of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, heck even Danny Ainge. Yeah some of them were whiny brats but I don't recall any taking the easy way out and stopping play by using such a cheap tactic (drawing the foul by dramatics isn't the same thing lol ). Was I completely oblivious to this tactic?
