Subject: Re: put up, off-the-point
DARE's evidence suggests that "put up," as in "I'll put up a pot of coffee,"
is localized in the NYC area. Another term from New York City is "off-the-
point," for a sidewalk ball game that involves throwing a spaldeen at the
corner edge of a building. Does anyone remember that? If so, when? Where?
How was/is it played?
Joan Hall, DARE
