For those who haven't seen it or are not on Facebook...we are having a Boulder vs. Denver kickball game this Saturday, Oct. 20th at Scott Carpenter Park in Boulder at 12:00pm, followed by an after-[Boulder] victory at either Avery or Southern Sun. Boulder's team is showing up in blue and Denver in red. Or I guess the guys decided on shirts vs. skins?
Anyways, here's SurfNTurf's take:
(Please enjoy the event photo, which is me about to rifle the ball at some poor girl. I think she's still in the hospital. It's hard for me to contain the strength of my right arm-cannon.)
All right, so Kris thinks it's a good idea for Boulder to challenge Denver to a game of kickball. The reasons he's an idiot are:
(1) Denver has me, a pro kickballer
(2) Everyone knows Boulderites have no ball skills. Sure, they're good at pseudo-"sports" like rock climbing, mountain biking, body hair-growing and inventing issues such as global warming-- but requiring them to utilize hand-eye coordination and work with others as a team? It's going to get ugly.
Anyway, since Boulder will likely be recovering from a 30-0 shellacking in which I personally score 28 runs, we'll head to Avery or Southern Sun for postgame beers.
We all know Boulder is known to produce top quality professional athletes. If you want to win, plan on being on my team because I'm overly competitive. That is all.
