    Host: What is there to do in prison?

    Ed Bales: Prison can be termed as a boring place sometimes. For most part when you go to prison, you'll be assigned a work assignment. Outside of your work assignment, you will have access usually to some type of gymnasium, some type of recreational facility, they may have shuffle board, lot of other minor games that you can play. Outside activities could include a walking track, bocce, Basketball, Touch Football, things of that sort but you are limited in prison.
