My fifteen seconds of YouTube Dodgeball fame…

READ BEFORE WATCHING THE VIDEO!  All of you are like those people who date online and look at photos without reading the profile.  Geesh.

Some of you may know that I play in a dodgeball league; those of you that didn’t know but do know ME think about it for a minute and you’ll be like “Yeah, I can see Wayne doing something goofy like that…”

Quick rules explanation: it is just like in the movie “Dodgeball”: if you get hit you’re out, if you catch a ball then the thrower is out and your team gets to have a person come back in (a two-person swing!), etc with one major thing added. If you are the last player on your team, you can try to make a dodgeball half-court shot (while the other team is still throwing at you) and if you do, it is called a “jailbreak” and your WHOLE TEAM gets to come back on the court. It doesn’t happen really often and everyone goes nuts when someone makes one.

So our league coordinator put together a video from some highlights from this season so far: check out the girl in the yellow pants getting knocked down, the girl who gets hit and then steps on a ball and wipes out and listen to the narration from the Dodgeball movie about picking on the weaker players when the video is showing a team with just three girls left. How sexist! I’ve gotten beaned by a few girls playing this crazy sport. It is really a lot of fun…

Check out the short video; sound needed for the full experience:

Recognize the guy who made the jailbreak at the end? Granted I practically killed myself in my excitement after by almost stepping on a ball while backing up, but I got instant dodgeball credibility with all the young kids, since most of them are in their twenties!

Finally, my 15 seconds of fame; the world moves too quick to get 15 minutes anymore…

    Do you consider yourself a Peter La Fleur or a White Goodman? Personally I could see some Steve the Pirate mixed with Patches O’Houlihan 🙂
