I will conclude my expose of the kickball universe whenever the hell folks stop feeding me gold...
Since first posting about the gals of the Tampa Bay kickball league, I've received multiple emails and comments from kickball enthusiasts in D.C., Memphis and Quebec; I'm now subscribing to like ten RSS feeds for kickball blogs.
Please keep sending! I assure you that info about kickball glory and prowess will be given as much consideration (at least half the time) as the details about on-field violence and degenerate off-field behavior.
Now get a load of these monkeys...
I first learned about this site from the Gothamist post on the kickballer who was arrested wielding a sword in Macys. Amongst all the potshot comments, a link to a website with an overtly inimical message stuck out – dieyuppiekickball.com.
The site serves as an organizational hub for the Anti Yuppie Kickball Guerilla Front, whose credo reads:
We, the Anti Yuppie Kickball Guerilla Front, do advocate all ridiculous direct action and pranks persuant to the collapse of kickball for Young Professionals in the greater Washington, DC area. For too long have we sat idle while all the chumps, douche-bags, yuppies, and stripey-shirt imported assholes of this town coalesced their power under this banner.
Here's the conspiracy chart... because when it comes to militant action, there is such as fine line between the rational and the delusional:
A post from October 2007, details the arrest of Agent Inquisitor K, who was later arraigned on several charges including advocating terrorism.
After several google searches for Inquisitor K (…and “terrorism”;…and “U.S. Marshals”;…and “aggravated assault” + “ball-napping”), nothing came up to corroborate the post…shocking. From what I can tell, the title of Inquisitor implies a high-level in the chain or command, more so than both Agent and Conscript.
If you think this might be for you, I'd encourage you to visit the site and check out the Join the Front page. They've posted some of their "most righteous application statements", like:
"Crusaders against banal conformity, accept my service! This plague of idiots must know the stink of a shit bomb; they WILL learn that the ball they enslave exists to smite them in a dodgeball frenzy!"
...personally, I'm trying to envision what would happen to somebody lest they were actually put in jail for some of this.
