Hey Team,

I’m sorry so many of you out there couldn’t partake in the 1st Annual Pseudo-sports Olympics…because yesterday was AWESOME!

The Olympics are a testament to the competition and sportsmanship inherent in the human spirit. A grand event dedicated to the best in us and an opportunity for us all to vicariously experience greatness.

The PSEUDO-SPORT Olympics are more like thirty people running around in a park all day playing games they haven’t played since elementary school. In short it’s a grand event dedicated to the fun we all forget to keep having when we all “grow up.”

It started with a five-inning game of kickball that (let’s be honest) wouldn’t have been kickball without the occasional bloody toe or unexpected blow to the head while running down the baseline. There was even plenty of screaming about what constitutes “baby bouncies” and how wide the imaginary bases were. It was like none of us had ever grown up (that was supposed to sound more positive and less pathetic than I think it came out).

Also, blue team won that round. No big deal…but I feel that should be pointed out.

Next up was horseshoes and badminton which were both awesome but tougher to organize teams into so eventually that gave way to ultimate frisbee in the rain followed by more yelling about what constitutes “fair play” and whether or not tackling is legal.

Then came the game of the day: Dodgeball! Oh man, that was fun! There’s just something about maliciously throwing things at people and having them still be willing to laugh it off after they take a red rubber ball to the face. Extremely satisfying. AND…another blue team victory. Just saying.

My camera seems to be having issues again (The last year has really taken a toll on my few possessions.) so no pictures today but you’ll just have to take my word for it and get on with organizing a Pseudo-sports day where ever you are! Don’t forget to send me an invite!

I’m done.
