The change of seasons is upon us. Daylight savings time has ended for another six months, allowing us to drive home in the dark somewhere pretty close to right after lunch. Ice scrapers, the poor manís garage, become a necessity. Of course, the really poor man can use his credit card to scrape ice off the window. Thatís what I had to do after I tried to use the credit card to buy an ice scraper but, alas, it had no more credit to give.

And with the change of the seasons, all of the Rye High School sports move indoors. The young women on the volleyball team, who played longer than any of the other fall sports, quit spiking the ball and begin dribbling it.

Young men trade the weird shaped football for the basketball as well. Those who miss the primal contact of the football field move from the artificial turf to the wrestling mat where the rules change and the equipment becomes less protective, but the hand to hand combat of the turf continues with one on one contests of strength, skill and smarts.
