Kickball is by far the greatest team sport ever. I’ve joined a league which consists of four teams, and all my fellow kickballers are interested primarily in drinking, then in their nicknames, then in whether or not we’ll be able to drink while playing, and last of all what the rules are. Today we had kickball practice. Having already figured out the basics, I showed up in dress pants, dress shoes and a long sleeved shirt. Sure enough, practice consisted of a bbq and about six beers. There was a kickball in evidence, but it was carefully ignored. This weekend is our first game. I’m going to be in Orlando. Next weekend is our next game, and I shall be in NYC. I am by far the most committed player, and my sole regret is that I shall not be present to drink with my teammates.

I love sports!
