Our nation's courts have recently been home to some vicious legal battles about the sport of kickball. The WAKA (World Adult Kickball Association) has beef with DCKickball about... well, I have no idea what it's about. The news here is that there are adults out there who play kickball.

I'm always going to have a soft spot for kickball. Without it, I might never have learned about the birds and the bees. True story: In 3rd or 4th grade, one of the really smart kids wanted to be on my kickball team, and I said he could, if he would define "sex" for me. And he did. And that is the beginning of how I became the ultra-masculine Lothario that you're reading today. It's all because of kickball.

I just wonder what other recess activities people are taking seriously. Is there a Professional Hopscotch Lleague? A Worldwide Tetherball Tour? A National Smear the Queer Association?
