Old people still rock!!

At my school, we try to promote team spirit. So, every once in a while, the staff will vs. the students in a game. In the fall, it was volleyball because that was the sport they were playing at the time. We were a little worried they would beat us because their record was like 5-1. Surprisingly, we won. We also won the year before.

This year we tried a new game: kickball. Now, we were even more worried. I mean, old people rounding bases? Do you know the last time I played kickball? I was in grade school (more than a decade ago!). Do you remember "requesting" your pitch? You know: smooth, bumpy, or extra bumpy. So yesterday we played the students in a 6 inning, no strikes, kickball game and we won!! The staff won 25 to 13. See, old people still rock!!

Wow...I would have loved to see that! You should play dodgeball. That would be really funny! There are so many "Dodgeball" quotes I could insert here, but the one that comes to mind is when they accuse Berniece from the Girl Scout Troop of using beaver tranquilizers! I love that movie. The 5 D's: Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive ... Dodge.

I was watching American Gladiators on NBC a few months ago and one of the guys competing actually had the 5 D's as his motto. I never got out yesterday. It helped that we went in alphabetical order and Mr. Smith went after me. He kicked it way out there everytime. After the first 2 innings the kids kind of gave up. It was a little sad - but not too sad.
