I think we should differentiate big, medium, and small objects in that last poll. You have BIG objects like toss up inflated balls, stars, and how about TiP goals. Medium objects like TT cubes, change up balls, and cones. Then the itty bitty objects like ringles, TP balls, whatnot.

Don’t we all? But keep in mind, the net is a pain in the butt to put up.
