Tis The Season To Be Free-Balling

GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The record setting temperatures across the United States may be responsible for a record number of free-ballers.

That’s the nutty notion from Paul Schack, president of Freeballers Of America, a club whose members are dedicated to living free without underwear.

Schack – who hasn’t bought a pair of skivvies in 16 years – says summertime is the biggest season for avoiding undies and says it’s because when the weather gets hot “tighty whities can be too binding, while boxers are too heavy and add an extra layer.”

The free-balling message seems to be getting across. Schack says the club’s membership has increased ten times since it first formed in 2000, and includes famous free-ballers like former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura.

Women members are welcome, too, but Schack says they’re called “free buffers.”

But while free-ballers feel free and easy, Schack says there is a period of adjustment, especially if you wear pants with zippers. He points out, “I made that mistake once.”
