An Interesting Observation About Balls

When you're stuck in the middle of the desert and have nothing to do, you think of things you usually won't if you're not in the desert... Does that make any sense?

Some few days back, (not the usual busy days yet as there are no week-/month-end reports to make and no schedules for the marathon meetings), my friend Leo gave me this observation about balls and I tried to figure out whether or not his observation is true. Like any other Filipino, Leo's a die-hard basketball fanatic and is a good player too at his age (hehehe... big balls). But that's not the only thing about Leo, he is also part of the corporate executives of the company.

Here's his interesting observation...

1. The sport of choice for the urban poor is BASKETBALL

2 The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is BOWLING

3 The sport of choice for front-line workers is FOOTBALL.

4 The sport of choice for supervisors is BASEBALL.

5 The sport of choice for middle management is TENNIS. and........

The sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is GOLF.


The higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.

I agree with you Leo... a lot of people prefer to "play and fondle" with "smaller balls" when they climb up the corporate ladder (others even smaller than golf balls... kasing laki na lang ng "jolen"... hahaha). They forget that they once used to have "big balls" earlier in their careers.

Thanks for the people out there who still has big balls even when they are at the top...kahit na creased and craggy na... bwahaha ...

This is my friend Leo - the Ball Observer... Watch out for his blog. It's coming out soon!
