For some reason, reading this post sent my mind back 20 years to a Church
Youth Group function. Our all-white, suburban youth group was playing host
to a Youth Choir from an inner-city Chicago Church. Our Youth-Pastor set up
a "non-competitive basketball" game as an icebreaker. It is played just like
regular basketball, except the object is to score the LEAST number of
points. The game lasted about five minutes before both our group and the
inner-city kids decided to just play regular basketball.
