Pingpong in Purgatory
By: 
Scott Sullivan
Before science discovered (or invented) ADHD and drugs meant to treat (or hide) it, teachers called me hyper and drug me down to the office. The principal was a busy guy. Once he’d lectured me in a stern voice, I was sentenced to an empty conference room, which I snuck out of to convene with my fellow disciplined penitents to play ping-pong in purgatory, aka Greg Vest’s rec room.

“Bacon Wrapped Deep Dish is Back” the sign said. It was missing?

My ADHD disturbs me. I remember some things, like now they’re back I should buy tons of these $12 pizza-pizzas from Little Caesars so owner Mike Ilitch, who also owns the Detroit Tigers, can afford his team’s 20l6 payroll, recently augmented by Juston Upton’s 6-year, $132.75-million contract and Jordan Zimmerman’s 5-year, $110-million pact. Add Miguel Cabrera’s 8 years for $248 million, Justin Verlander’s 6 years for $162 million and you start to talk real money.

There are sports statistics, old song lyrics, TV commercial and more useless garbage I can’t dislodge from my head. But computer passwords, what my wife just told me and other info I might really need? Never registered.
