You remember kickball, right? From back in elementary school when you were super uncoordinated. Well now you have a chance to play it again. The bad news? You’ll still be uncoordinated. The good news? It’s because you’ll be drunk. It’s “cup in hand” kickball! (Is there any other way to play?)
Come have some fun in the park (or “pahk”, in light of Ben Affleck's latest role) on Saturday. Enjoy a BBQ and drinking kickball game!
When and where
I (Jason) will meet people at Kentucky and Franklin in Wash Park and then set up around there (wherever there is room). Parking is available on the streets or a few blocks south at South High School. Look for someone with a kickball, cones, and a red camping grill. :) Or text/call me,[masked]-9494.
What to bring for kickball:
1. Clothes that you don’t mind having beer spilled on. Maybe a towel too.
2. Non-hipster sunglasses, sunscreen
3. Camping chair
4. An extra kickball would be great too, as I only have one kickball.
What to bring for the BBQ:
1. Beer or some sort of drink. Be sure it’s in a can (pretty sure glass bottles are prohibited) and is 3.2% beer (you can get a ticket if it is not 3.2, so buy/drink at your own risk!).
2. A grill. I have one that I’ll bring, but we could use 1 or 2 more.
3. Food, plasticware, napkins, plates, trashbags, etc to share for the BBQ. Please RSVP below with what you are going to bring.
The kickball rules:
1. Don’t be a dbag! This is a socializing event first and a game second. So have fun and meet new people. (Note: I’m stealing this rule from KIFAC.)
2. See Rule #1. (Note: I’m stealing this rule from Fight Club.)
3. 11 players on the field at a time.
4. Each player must be holding a cup of beer that is at least half-full while playing in the field. I'll bring the Solo cups for everyone.
5. Second base is “Social Second.” Any runner who touches second yells “Social” and we all drink.
-Rule 5a: Never drink alone.
6. If there’s a slip-n-slide from 3rd to home, sliding on the slide to score counts as 2 runs.
7. When tagging or hitting someone for an out, aim below the head. If a runner gets hit in the head (even if they lower he or she lowers her head), the runner gets two bases and is not out.
8. An overthrow is one base.
9. On a flyball, the ball can be hit off any body part and then caught for an out, so long as it doesn’t touch the ground. In other words, you can hit into the air as much as you want to get an assist from others before someone finally catches it.
