    The game begins when one player serves the ball, usually by holding it in one hand and hitting it with the other. The opposing player then attempts to return the serve by hitting it in the opposite direction. The object is to hit the ball in such a way that one's opponent will be unable to alter the ball's direction; this gives the server an advantage since the server has more control over the ball from the beginning. It is generally acceptable to hit the ball with either the fist or the open hand.

    A player can commit a violation by stepping onto his opponent's half of the pole, by catching and throwing ("carrying") the ball, by striking the rope instead of the ball, or by hitting the ball twice before it has either circled the pole or been returned by the opponent (or, in some variants, struck the pole). Generally, after a violation occurs, the game pauses and the ball is returned to the position it was in before the violation; the number of wraps around the pole is re-created. The player who did not commit the violation then serves the ball. If, however, the violation appears to be intentional, it may result in loss of game.

    In some schools, tetherball is played differently such as a rule called 'Freestyle' where no rules exist.

    No. No crimes have been committed. Sorry, a president can only be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanor's." None have been committed. Ben Ghazi. total right wing cr*[p IRS -- ONE person who didn't even deny any of the applications, so at best ONE person could be held responsible, but I doubt that any crime was committed in asking extra question of pseudo-patriots starting pseudo-social organizations. AP - Though, in my opinion, it was overreach and should not have been done, what they did IS legal...thanks to the Patriot Act, the government can pretty much peek into anyone's business without notifying them. Talk to your Republican congress people who not only supported the original very unpatriotic patriot act, but have vigorously defended it since it's passage. Now would you effing ignorant right wing stools get you heads out of your a55es? You've been talking about impeachment since the week Obama took office(literally.) Give it a rest. You are starting to look really stupid!
