Red Rover, Red Rover, Send Kuala Lumpur Over

A team comprised of leaders from Malaysia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Singapore and Thailand competed in the Red Rover regional finals today at the o
pening of the 39th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Ministerial Meeting in Kuala Lumpur. Nicknamed "The Fightin' 39's", the team is currently undefeated but has a long way to go if they hope to equal the success of the infamous "Fightin' 95's"...

... or 1987's rag-tag bunch of roughnecks known affectionately though for no apparent reason as "The Knuckle Bunch".

Established in 1967, ASEAN's goal is to accelerate economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region, as well as to strengthen the foundation for a prosperous and peaceful community of Southeast Asian nations through such playground games as Red Rover, Red Light Green Light, Relievio and Tag.
