Another Championship Game of Dodgeball

Tonight, my dodgeball team plays for the championship of the world. Well, it's the TCSSC dodgeball championships, and that's sort of like the championship of the world. We won the championship last season and tonight we go for the repeat.  We'll be without our best female player because Jordy went

Learning to Dodge That Ball

Tonight, I played my second game of dodgeball this season.  We lost the first game last Tuesday but tonight we destroyed the competition.  I thought I'd share my thoughts of the game of dodgeball now that I've had some seasoning. First and foremost, dodgeball is hard on your throwing arm.

I've never played dodgeball, but I've seen the movie.  It looked like a lot of fun, and soon I shall see.  I've joined a dodgeball league. My first game is tomorrow night, so today I hit the web to learn the rules.  I learnt about the opening rush, the 5-second
