Competitive Kickball. 

;-)   Schweeeet!

Oh man!  That sounds like a heck of a lot of fun!  I wanna play too!

Mmmmmm.  Mud.  Ya know, that single word comes pretty close to 
answering the question 'is it a sport?'  

"Mum, is there any chance of getting a wee bit muddy?"

It may not be definitive, but if the answer is 'yes' then I think 
you can be pretty sure it's a sport.  And even if it ain't, its 
gonna be Big Fun anyway!  

(Mud - it's how a 5 yo spells 'win-win'!)

Secondly, have you ever noticed that if something is fun and even if - 
Uh, I take that back - *especially* if that same something is a bit off 
the beaten path, there will be someone at evolt who knows all about it 
and/or is an active participant? I like that a lot!

Great stuff indeed!

Yeah ... and it's even tougher when you're NOT playing in July!!  ;=P

>>PBR is an excellent anesthetic though, orally or topically.

Oh maaaaan!  As if I didn't have enough temptations to visit the PNW!

I'm gonna have to find a way to get up there!  Hey, it's cost effective 
too!  Have you seen the prices for mud therapy at a spa??? I could buy 
a coupla cases of PBR for both teams and still save a ton of money!

A very envious RonL.

(However, being a tad older and more modest wuss, 
I'd probably play in me culottes instead.)
