Well, dunk, I am 42 and I've never heard of Smear the Queer. It was always "Killthemanwiththe ball" up heah in Maine.

Up in these parts, queer was meant to be something odd or peculiar. Still is I guess. We don't know much about these new fangled definitions.

Just a ways south of you in Massachusetts we called it both "Kill the man with the ball" and "Smear the queer." Of course, we generally started out playing KMB, then that one pussy kid who would never hold onto the ball for more than a second (you know who *he* was, in our game it was my stepbrother) would finally piss someone off and then it became STQ with *that* guy being the queer. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Usually we played more organized sports but when the dumber kids in the 'hood showed up we had to change to a game with less rules and organization. Good times.

I grew up in Champaign, IL. and we called it "Killerman". Parents were always trying to get us to stop, cause someone would always get hurt.

They really got scared when we started playing "the outsiders" we would reenact the fight scene from the movie. Basicly killerman w/ out the ball

In Madison, I believe the boys called this game "Crusher".
