Mighty Mouse Paddle
As a kid, growing up on the St. Clair River running through the little town of Algonac, Michigan, we didn’t have a lot of games we’d plug in or that ran on batteries. Our games tended to run on our imaginations, and sure determination, and probably cost a quarter at the local Ben Franklin store. One of my favorites was my Mighty Mouse Paddleball. If you couldn’t beat your brother or sister’s highest score, you’d best ’em by doing it longer without stopping. I think the longest I went was 12 minutes non-stop. The only downside was that these paddles could be used by Mom or Dad to give you a nice swat — and what kid never misbehaved?
