It’s Opening Week!

Games start tomorrow night for Recesstime’s biggest league ever! With nearly 100 teams, it’s going to be hard to find a park that is not filled with happy kickballers. Which also means a lot of scheduling! We’re making the final tweaks now. The schedule will be released today. For now, watch the kickball page to find out which division your team will be playing in!

Third Time’s a Charm for DODGEDAMNIT!

image

Players on this team have been in the league since back in our halcyon Tucker Maxon days. Stephan and his motley crew of dodgeball fanatics had been to the final game twice before only to fall in 7th game drama. This time the drama would be no different with Dodgedamnit! taking a well oiled Mama Said Knock You Out, another talented veteran team (playing in their first playoff finals), to seven games. However, Dodgedamnit! would be the team donning red shirts and drinking from the Kennedy cup. Congratulations Dodgedamnit! on your Spring 2009 Dodgeball Championship victory we hope that retirement claim is just another one of your tricks to get us to love you more.
