I GET A KICK: The World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA- is Fozzie Bear a member?) has issued new up-to-date rules that will govern all official kickball games among adults. A few questions here- who knew kickball had "rules"? Where are these adults who didn't give up kickball in 5th grade like most people and instead continue to play it as grown-ups? If there's actually a groundswell of support for professional kickball, could professional ga-ga be far behind?
But my favorite WAKA rule is definitely #16: "Ghost Men: Ghost Men are not allowed." Wouldn't major league baseball be a lot more fun if they allowed Nomar Garciaparra to hit a single, put a "ghostie" of himself on first, and then bat again? That could make one-on-one baseball a reality.
