past on by my friend John who i asked had a good responce with this with a friend of his

Whoosh
I'm pretty sure the name is correct. It was a yard game with two nylon strings with handles on either end. There was a hollow football shaped piece that was transported from person to person via the nylon strings. One person holding one end of each string would stretch their arms out and the hollow football would travel the length of the nylon strings to the other person, who would perform the same motion and drive it back to the other person. We had alot of fun with it.


Whoosh
unreal. my brother and I played that game back in the day... we are both early 40s now, and want to try to purchase one. tried to "WHOOSH" in a google search, nothing of that name came up.. its the right discription, seems to be wrong name of the game, someone help pleaseeee
