(Photo) Young Girl Named National Marbles Tournament Queen, Promptly Gets Cooties

Ewwwwww….gross!

Adorably pictured above are Brandon Matchett (right), 12, and Bailey Narr, 11, who were named the King and Queen, respectively, of the 88th Annual National Marbles Tournament in Wildwood, New Jersey, and as you can see, it appears that Bailey is still at that young age where she believes that all boys are icky. But perhaps the most interesting bit of information gleaned from this photo and the associated story is that kids still play with marbles. Who woulda thunk it? I mean, sure, if there were such a thing as a Wii Marbles game or something of that ilk, the tykes would be all over it, but to actually hunker down on the ground and shoot marbles? Mind blowing.

Anyhoo, congratulations to Brandon and Bailey. And Bailey, you best get those Cooties checked out.
