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."
