An outdoor game named for the position which the loser must assume. The construct of the game is as follows: Players: as many can confortably move around an area opposing the wall/target. A ball (tennis, basket, playground, bouncey, type insignificant) is thrown against a wall by the thrower (this may include an intermediate bounce on the ground. As it bounces back, and of the persons may choose to catch the ball and become the next thrower, but anyone touching the ball and not retaining (catching) it must immediately run to the wall and touch it before any of the other players recovers the ball and hits the wall with it. If the failed catcher reaches the wall before the ball, play continues. If not, he must assume a 'spread eagle' position against the wall and may then be pegged (hit with the ball) by the last thrower (i.e. the one that got him/her 'out'. Play resumes until everyone is too tired or bruised to continue.

Back in the good old days, me and the boys would play spread eagle. Now, the young whippersnappers stay inside and watch pokemon and play with their nintendos.
