[RUNS= :06]
[OUT Q=you want to shoot back.]

According to Blecher, paintball is the fastest growing extreme sport in the world. He says the game got it's start in the early 80's when forestry and agricultural workers using paint to mark trees and cattle turned the markers on each other. Since then, nearly 100-variations of paintball have come to life, including the speedball being played today. All have a common denominator.

[OUT Q=usually called out of the game.]

The paintballs consist of water-based paint surrounded by a biologically safe skin. High Velocity avoids red paint because of its resemblance to blood. Markers, or guns, are powered by carbon dioxide or compressed air.
[SOT 8:32:05-8:32:11]

((SHAN: HIT! STEVE: GOT HIT? SHAN: YEP. STEVE: PLAYER OUT! LET HER OFF THE FIELD!))

Blecher sets his markers to fire at 285-feet per second. Doesn't sound too bad until you realize that object whizzing by your head is cruising at 193-miles an hour.
[SOT 8:54:35-8:54:45]
[IN Q=How dies it feel...  when you get hit?]

((SHAN: HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN YOU GET HIT? STEVE: LIKE A STING. ALMOST LIKE A BEE STING BUT YOUR ADRENALINE'S FLOWING SO HARD THAT YOU DON'T REALLY NOTICE IT.))
[RUNS= :10]

Blecher is big on safety. All players are required to wear a protective mask, go through a safety class and outfit their marker with a barrel cover between games.
[SOT 8:46:04-8:46:12]
[IN Q=This sport is actually safer than...]

[SOT 8:41:20-8:41:28]
[IN Q=So, what'd you think?]

((STEVE: SO, WHAT'D YOU THINK? SHAN: IT WAS GREAT, BIG FUN BUT IT TAKES A WHILE TO GET USED TO THE GEAR AND THE EQUIPMENT. YOU WERE LIKE, "GRAB YOUR GUPPY" AND I WAS LIKE, "WHAT? WHERE?"))
[RUNS= :08]
