Last night I played the last Adult Kickball Game of the 2011 Summer Season. We did not win. We have had a team for a glorious six years. To us it is not about being athletic or winning a game, although that would be nice, it is not even about the joys of drinking cheap beer and wine on a warm summer’s eve. It is about getting together with the closest of friends, winding down our week and enjoying summer with that carefree abandon that was available in abundance when we were kids. These days it is hard to come by, so we savor it each Thursday night by hoisting our cheap beer can’s or red Solo’s filled with white wine, and screaming NeverNudes for Life!
Fortunately Portland offers all kinds of child’s play that allows even the oldest of Stumptown dwellers to remain kids, if only for a nail-biting 7 innings. So, if you are looking to join the fun checkout Recesstime Sports or Underdog Sports. If balls are not your thing, don’t worry there is plenty to see here folks. This weekend for instance is the Soap Box Derby on Mt. Tabor. It is Shenanigans on Wheels!
