For those who don’t know, bocce ball is an Italian old-man sport similar to the Canadian old-man sport of curling (without the Olympic squad.) The goal is to get your team’s balls as close to the little white ball as possible, or something like that. The real goal? To pretend like you’re getting some sort of exercise while drinking beer outdoors. A fine goal indeed.
