Intramural team hopes spirit will help them win

One of PBA's new intramural soccer teams, Team Spirit, has a new player who is shaking up their competition. Joseph, former resident of the Riddle House, has recently joined the Team Spirit roster. Although Joseph ended his physical existence in the attic of the Riddle House in the 1920s, his spirit has been encouraging intramural teams give 110% for over 20 years.

The Riddle House stood on the site of the intramural field until the 1980s, when it was moved to the Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds. It served as a house for the Riddles, and, more recently, a PBA girls dormitory.

As Joseph was cohabitating, he began to develop a love for PBA's intramural sports teams. For over 20 years, Joseph has been a spectator. This year marks the first time Joseph will be playing for one of the teams.

Seen by some as a disability, Joseph hopes to use his lack of corporeality to help his team win. Joseph notes that he cannot trip in potholes or kick sand around.

"I may not be physically fit for the team, but I have enough spirit to help us succeed."

I think the last thing this house was in the early 90's was PBA Maintenance.....or maybe that was a different house....it was called the "Gatekeeper's House" because it sat across from the Cemetary gate on Dixie. it's at Yesteryear Village and I think its this house.

Hey...maybe we can get the little girl ghost from the old library to move in with this ghost. I remember she didn't care too much for the new library, so she must be looking for a new place to "hang".

I think they're going for that style to make it seem less staged.

Am I the only one whose mind immediately jumped to Harry Potter when I read "Riddle House?"

Was this one of those crack houses in that area during the 80's?
