Phil Richards wrote an interesting piece about the nature of street ball. Colts players recalled their rough-and-tumble existence in a brutal, albeit formative game:
"It's the 'brick jungle.' That's what we used to call it," Wayne said. "From light pole to light pole, you got roughly eight mailboxes and that's fair game. There was no out of bounds, really, and if you ran on the grass, you were eligible to get tackled. And, depending on the score, if you were in the middle of the street, you were eligible to get tackled there, too."
