Writing for the Washington City Paper was a great gig. I had a great editor and got to write about both political stuff, and the quirky things I saw and learned about while living in D.C.
This one on an adult kickball league and related shenanigans was an assignment from my editor. A friend at the time cracked up about the quote with the homeless guy reference. And if you Google my name, you’ll find a site for the guy who tipped us off about this story.
Oddly enough, years later, in Seattle, I played adult kickball. It wasn’t all that fun. I mean, it was fun, but I got injured. No fun.
