 n.— «Bullrush is tops too—just a massive group of people on one side of the field. One person (or two sometimes) would be chosen to be in, and they’d stand in the middle and yell “BULLRUSH” and everyone would run across the field. The idea was for the ppl who are in to tip (or tackle if parents or teachers weren’t around) ppl and then they were in with you. Then once everyone was across, it was yelled again. Each person who was caught was in the middle and was trying to catch the ppl running—this bit is reffered to as “gang-ups’ :)» —“Two-Day Holiday Weekend” by James Noble The Musings of Kev July 5, 2004.
