A Ball-and-Stocking Game

"I just remembered the version of a ball-and-stocking song [the game where a rubber ball was inserted into a woman's stocking]. I have a vague memory of one girl wielding the stocking and other girls having to enter the swing zone and flatten themselves against the wall to escape the ball." -Pat
