it's two-hand touch, the Metro Toronto Touch Football League

and it's pretty weird, with 6 players on each side, no running plays (must
be a forward pass), 3 downs to make 2 completed 10-yard plays, i.e. if you
throw for 5 and the receiver does not gain another 5, the play is called
short, does not count towards your 2-out-of-3, but the line of scrimmage
moves up... and [dagnabit] no onside kicks...

why do i play it?  because i [still] can

also, dex had it pretty much nailed:

   Post-game endorphin rush. Post-game nap. Post-game beers =).

although of course not in that order

i don't nap till i get back home after the beers

then there's frisbee golf....
