Are You Ready For Some Kickball

This weekend we are getting together with my family for
"Easter Saturday" and I'm stoked!

I have lots of younger cousins (actually my cousins children) and they are all super fun & crazy... during the summer they all come over to our house and go swimming or Hubby and the girls fill up about a million water balloons and we all just go nuts! Fun times

We usually get together for a BBQ at the park with the traditional Easter Egg hunt for the kids and sometimes a game of baseball with the whole family, well this year I suggested we play Kickball instead of Baseball...
YAY Kickball!
I figured if we play Kickball the smaller kids could get in on the action too. I told Hubby about my plans and he was all about it.
Hubby started reminiscing about his professional Kickball days back in elementary school and started quizzing me as to what the terminology was for some of the plays.

I couldn't remember because well I can't even remember what the hell I did last week let alone remember rules from a game I played a billion years ago, Honestly! who remembers "Baby Bouncies" or "Pop Flies"?
Do you remember any Kickball terminology or rules?
I'm off to go buy a big red ball!

Girl...my company has a team in a kickball league!! hahahaha I love it...(well when I can make the games)...granted adult kickball seems to involve a lot of beer..but nonetheless still super fun...

NOT FUN however when the men have momentary flashbacks of their high school days and attempt to slam you with the ball...smh..

Best bet KEEP THE BALL ON THE GROUND lol then RUN YOUR ASS OFF!!! ha!

Have fun and post pics!!!!

6th grade-PE-kickball...... I remember getting KICKED right in my face with that big red bouncy ball from a red-headed freckle face lil fucker! I remember I instantly felt all my face tingling and then my blood started to boil...and BAM!! I charged for that lil shit head and started swinging at him, til the teacher got me off of him. Needless to say, i got my revenge!! Good times in 6th grade!

Mostly all I remember from grade school kickball is getting my ass kicked. Remember kids, big does not equal athletic!

I loved kickball as a kid. I was terrible and got hit in the face, but it was still awesome. I liked dodgeball, too, but you cant play that with boys because they get totally out of control!!

take pics, because I want to see you in action!

You better post a lot about it ..
If you like it maybe ill suggest it here ! haha

Kellie said...

Oh I love kickball! Good call. It's way better than baseball! Heck no I can't remember any terminologies for kickball. I'm like you and have short term memory. Anything further than a week out and it is probable that I won't remember it. :)

The only one I remember is "Do not aim that ball for your sister's face!"
Not sure if it was a real rule or my mom's way of trying to make sure I lived.

I can't remember anything. I can't even remember if I ever played kickball. I'm sure I did at some point in my sorry life, but rules? Yeah, right.

(I know this is kickball, but I still thought that clip was warranted.)

"Professional Kick ball days in elementary school..."HAHAHA LOL!!! That's awesome!

In Canada we call it Soccer Baseball. In Cambodia, where we couldn't afford a ball, we called kick the can.

My friends play in an adult kickball league in Salt Lake City. I can't join because my work shifts are too weird, but they have fun. I'm told the hardest part is learning how to catch the pop fly balls.

You know, it was your blog title that first brought me here....I just LUUUURVE me some CUPCAKES!!!...but, it was your personality, your furbabies, your family, and your FANTABULOUS posts that kept me coming back for more. You're too good!

kickball sooo brings me back to primary school! retro!

Lana said...

The word "kickball" only reminds me of dodge-ball. dodge-ball brings back memories. bad memories. I'm now off to hide in my corner to rock back and forth while muttering, "must find my happy plce...must find my happy place...must find my...."

I love kickball! Sounds like you're going to have a BA (badass)weekend!

Matt said...

Save me some BBQ...

and some beans. I know there will be beans there.

Desert Rat said...

If I wasn't going to be with D this weekend in AZ, we would so be there but he has been sick. I'm going to post tonight now that I'm back online...it will be an honest post, I'm sure I can find laughter in it. ;-)

or maybe I will write how I've been in Mars and I was on my way back but thought "hey I bet Kim would love a shirt from here" and then got a flat and am still waiting on a tow truck.

HA Matt's comment cracks me up...just cuz we're beaners he assumes there will be beans.

I miss reading everyone, I've only just caught up on you.

If you scroll down to kickball the rules are posted there. It's from my Kickball League. I've played for 4 years. It's awesome.

Let me tell you how I kicked serious ass in our 5th grade kickball tournament!

I think it's because I was the tallest girl in the entire 5th grade class... I was EXTRA AWESOME!

HAVE FUN!!

Your post reminds me of elementary/jr high PE. I used to love kickball as a kid.

Of course, we also played a lot of dodgeball using the same balls. My own personal worst fear.
