Just watching the Five and this subject came up...... It brought back good fun memories...... There should be leagues for 50 y/o plus people to keep them in motion and build their endurance.....

I can see it now..... The Topix Dodge Ball Challenge!

Unions -vs- The Chamber of Commerce.....

On one side is a bunch of middle aged blue collar Americans, while on the other side, a bunch of SE Asians who the Chamber has outsourced the work to!

Bob why do you have the overwhelming need to confront and antagonize regardless of the issue? Is that common among left wing, gay , takers?

Haha ... can you imagine the flying dentures and shrill screams of "Oh God, my sciatica!!"

Think about the sheer joy some hen-pecked old duffer saddled to a controlling battle ax for the last 30 years could get while lining his wife up for a headshot from 10 feet away!!

Batch, you're on to something here. Wipeout will have nothing on the '50+ Dodgeball Dust Off League'!

Awesome! This could be a televised event too locally!!!! All of the sacrifices we made in coming up can be taken out in a field of play..... Science will eventually creep in but heck it will be fun!!!!

Science and the call for a busted colostome bag time out!

I keep envisioning a bunch of oldsters scattered about the field on their backs, frantically hitting their Life Alert buttons :)

Ah funny! The Delta plex can make money to host the venue... You can be an officer with me and we will make money to piss off the local libs..... Fun for everyone...... Protective equipment optional...... I have no more use of my reproductive organs though they still work....... As long as I make bank......

I'm a good 10 years shy of this league, but I'll be a season ticket holder! You've got a money maker here for sure, Batch. I love this idea!!

You could get a DeVos or VanAndel involved and REALLY put a burr in the saddles of the Topix Liberal Glee Club! You could drag ol' Fred Meijer's carcass out at halftime for good measure. You know how much the capitalist-haters loved that guy!!

I suggest you create age divisions. I know some 50 year olds that can still get some velocity. Pit a spry 50 year old against some 70 year old dustball and it would be lights out for grandma!!
