Last Friday was very interesting for reasons more than it just being Friday the 13th!¬† It was also the day some of the other folks from Entercom and I went to Laurens District 55 High School to play the best sport EVER: DODGEBALL!!!!
When we got there I have to admit I was disappointed with the balls they were using.¬† Instead of the inflated rubber balls I expected, they were kinda squishy and didn't throw very well as I¬†discovered upon my first offensive strike.¬† I was poised and ready to take someone's head off and, lo, is where my ball went - LOW!¬† I threw it directly to the ground just a foot or so in front of me!¬† EPIC FAIL!!!!
It also didn't help that we faced the Laurens High Wrestling team first!¬† They were calculated and organized whereas we, myself particularly, were all over the place and got our asses kicked.¬† I was being kinda cocky and began taunting the jocks so they ended up teaming up on me 3-to-1 with the third ball finally clipping my leg and outing me.¬† I think the whole team lasted less than two minutes of the six minute match.
We got one more shot at glory as we had an exhibition match against the coaches.¬† This time we got a game plan and performed considerably better.¬† However, we did still lose to the coaches but had a lot more fun the second time around!
My only regret is that the tournament was a one-off event.¬† I would love nothing more than to find a dodgeball league and play regularly and get in better shape and maybe even get good at the game!
