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…
