All the News That’s Fit to Print

Posted by Ren McCormack on September 25, 2006

Here are two kickball articles that describe what kickball is all about pretty well. 

The first article is from the NY Times.  It does a pretty good job describing the two kickball tribes:  the A-holes (the ones who take the game seriously) and the Partiers (the ones who take their drinking seriously). 

Quote of the article:  “No one here is sober. I just played flip cup and had a couple shots.”

The other article is an older one that I found in the “dating” section of the Post.  Yea, don’t ask what I was doing there. 

Quotes of the article:  “It boggles the mind that a game as unsexy as kickball could be the hottest aphrodisiac in town.”  “Everybody is pretty much a lush.”  “The kickball is just an excuse to get to the bar….”  Yup, that pretty much sums it up.
