…More Than Sweet Potatoes

How to [in]Correctly Enjoy a Kickball Tournament

If you’ve never played kickball…then I opine that you had a weird childhood.  It’s the kids game that plays very much like baseball except that you do not use a bat and a baseball but rather your feet and a big red ball (or in the case of different leagues, a yellow or orange ball.)

It's also the end of my liver...

If you’ve never played kickball as an adult though, you’re absolutely missing out.  In addition to it being a LOT of fun and a moderate amount of activity, it also can be a complete hashtagshitshow and foster a lot of new friendships.

You may recall from the Frat House post that Kickball is the reason I have super cool friends in Atlanta.

This past weekend was South Florida Kickball Open 2014 (or #SFKO2014, for those of your trying to play along on twitter, which makes no sense since this is a blog post…)  27 teams from across the nation (only 12 of which were from the state of Florida) came down and partied, played and partied.  Oops, did I say partied twice?  Oh right, well that was on purpose.

This is from Friday night, but it's a picture within a picture...Awesome

Things that I did this weekend include, but are in no way limited to, the following:

I allowed Karen to get me drunk on Friday night at the Meet and Greet on Fireball shots.

That devil on the front is legit…

I acquired a new wine glass (I asked and was told that yes, I could keep it, so it’s not stealing.

I drank a 40 for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday

40s can’t even be bought in Florida – Karen and Cassie brought them for me!

I carried, rolled and relocated between 3 and 6 coolers every hour or so.

I helped make and consume the yummiest blended frozen lemonades (courtesy of my bff, Priscilla).

I played kickball.

My team for SFKO2014 – Honey Badgers

I watched more kickball (once my team was eliminated.)

I got lost at the after party on Saturday night.

I traded my t-shirt and shorts with others at the bar on Sunday.

I took two 2-4 hour naps.

I possibly didn’t pay for my dinner or drinks on Sunday (but I think I did according to my chase account online.)

I attempted to pass out on the sidewalk outside of my apartment.

I had about 25 more steps to get to my bed…

I signed up to play in the girls tournament in Atlanta in a month.

I became the “Beezus” of parallel parking.

I mean, I didn’t NEARLY get married or lose my wallet/keys/phone (both done by McNugget in past SFKO years) but it’s not bad for a bender of a weekend.  So, apparently I still got it.

And unlike past posts, I didn’t need my sister’s ID or drinking games to make it through moderately unscathed…
