Date: Wed, 26 Jul 1995 13:19:06 CST From: Joan Hall 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? Thanks. Joan Hall, DARE jdhall[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
