Re: Whats my line?

Hi Bob;

He is still active as a player, sometimes he has been an official.

Re: Whats my line?

To bob

I'm thinking about bobbym's statement that it is considered a sport.It gives me an idea that he might be something like a chess player or a ballet dancer or something like that.

Re: Whats my line?

hi Stefy,

Yes, it might.   We need a good question to home in on the right area.  Asking things like "Is it table tennis?" could waste a lot of questions.  note to bobbym: that was NOT a question!

He is not involved in music. Perhaps in his personal life but it has nothing to do with his line.
