The hubby, my friend, Cat, and I joined an adult dodgeball league with the Grand Rapids Sport and Social Club. Our first game was last night. What a blast! Much like kickball, dodgeball is so much more fun as an adult than it was as a kid in gym class.
We played one of the best teams in the league and got our butts handed to us, but they had such a positive attitude, that it was still a great time. After the games, the club goes out to a local bar for cheap beer and food. There are about 400 people signed up for the league right now. Wow! We met so many new people, and even learned a new drinking game. Fun stuff!
I did, however, sustain a minor dodgeball injury. One of the guys threw a ball at me pretty hard, and I was able to block it with the ball in my hand. Unfortunately, in the process, I bent my thumb back really hard. It hurt immediately, and I dropped the ball. I was out. But the guy who hit me was super sweet, and made sure I was OK after the game ended.
My thumb is all swollen and starting to turn purple, but I'm sure it will be fine in a couple days. For now, I'm trying to train myself to hit the Space Bar with the other hand. Crazy hard to do! LOL!
