“I was a croquet player in the Northern California Attenuated Association of Professional Croquet -- the NCAAPC. I played for Sir Charles Barkley, the only NBA star knighted by the Queen of England -- the big man saved the Isle of Man from sinking after an Irish fishin boat collided with the island -- the league’s extremely popular in Northern California, Italy, Moldavia, Corsica, and Lapland, among other places. Barkley established a style of croquet uniform utilizing kilts and French Foreign Legion hats making the uniforms extremely cool, and the full contact body strikes from stake to stake completely re-energized the sport. The NCAAPC is now 82% African American -- 2% African-American owned -- but even in my day I was the only white guy on the team. I played goalie and outside skulker, uh, before the full helmet-era.”
