Dan Aldrich's family in Michigan has been playing a backyard game for generations, but no one's sure how to spell its name.
Is it C-a-d-d-y? C-a-d-d-i-e? Or is some other variation correct?The game is played with a sawed-off broomstick and a brick.
"I've never written it down," the Lyndon Township resident says. "If you ask 10 Aldriches how to spell it, you might get 10 different spellings."
People young and old can enjoy the game, Aldrich says.
"Everyone sits around in the grass and there's excessive heckling," he adds. "About how you swing, how silly you look with the stick." [Link]
