Was it raining buckets? Yes. Did we still play a pick-up game? HELL YES.
We actually had more people on the field who had never played Circle Rules before than old hands! Our team, West Nile Virus, won 4-3 against our opponents, and I had 3 of the goals (the opening goal was put in by a newbie, Mikey, who also unhesitatingly named our team!).
BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS UPDATE IS ABOUT
The update today is about TOMORROW'S CHAMPIONSHIP GAME! The Slow James K. Polks, of which yours truly is a proud member, is playing the Flying Mordecais -- who we have just recently demolished. Our team is going to be strong in numbers, and we're absolutely ready to take on this challenge.
You are humbly invited to come watch the destruction!

Best part: THE DRUMLINE IS BACK!!! Youth Arts Brooklyn is bringing out their drum and flag corps to pump up the crowd. If you missed them the first time at the 2009 Come Out & Play festival, don't miss it!
