Kickball is here!

Summer. How do you know that’s arrived in DC? Maybe tourist hordes? Or what about sticky, sweaty hot? Hmm… No, I think the best way to say when summer starts in DC is to look on the Mall.

If you find kickball on the National Mall, it is summer alright. And if you hear of a kball controversy then you know its Washington DC.

This week you can find these two to the right on the National Mall, kickball in hand, smile on face. Summer is here!

    Damn you all to hell *shakes fist* I’m in the Trimuph division out of Falls Church, our kickball start date was pushed back two weeks.

    The question now is will you guys be able to peacefully share space with the Ultimate Frisbee folks who also seem to love staking out their turf on the Mall? :)

    Ultimate Frisbee isn’t the problem, softball teams are. They hog fields, get aggressive, and last year when we all were squeezed on the Mall while the Monument was under repair, would routinely beam kickballers and random tourists with high, fly softballs.

    Lucky they haven’t maimed or killed anyone yet.
