"Grandpa, what kind of computer games did you have when you were a kid?"
"Well we had Pong and then later Space Invaders, and then Galaga, which was like way cool at the time."
"That's it! Man, you guys must have been really bored. I mean what else did you do?"
"Son, this may sound impossible to you, but we actually went outside to play games. And, yes, we had fun."
"Huh? What kind of games can you play outside?"
"Well back in the 70s, the tennis craze was all the rage. Hard to believe, but it was considered a major sport - right up there with football, baseball and hockey."
"What? hockey was considered a major sport?"
"Okay, smart guy. I remember EVERYONE took up tennis then. And, believe you me, it was a great place to see all the lovely ladies!"
"Well grandpa, I play tennis"
"Son, Wii tennis doesn't count."
"Have you heard ANYTHING I've been saying? Put away that infernal contraption and you might learn a thing or two about how to set up a great date for a girl."
Sigh. "No, no, no. It's like...oh never mind, you're generation is hopeless. Son? son?" **sound of texting** "Oh great, seems to me that the only exercise you kids get now days is texting on your phones!" "No wonder all the tennis courts are all empty........"
