A game played in Harlem in which teams try to grab an object and get back to base without being tagged.
Teams line up, facing one another, about 30 feet apart. The object (e.g. a stick) is placed at the mid-point between the two lines. A "caller" stands to the side and calls out players by number, by odds or evens, or "all in" and the designated players run to the middle, each trying to STEAL THE BACON (grab the stick) and run back to their line without being tagged by an opposing player. Hours of fun.
