|1.||Seattle Street Dodgeball|
Seattle Street Dodgeball is hosted at Cal Anderson Park in the Capitol Hill area in Seattle, WA.
It serves as a great melting pot, as cultures, religion, political opinion, favorite movie character lines, profanity, sexual orientation, grins, and laughter clash in the midst and fury of flying dodgeballs.
The games are pickup and played on a tennis court every Tuesday and Friday night, rain or shine (or snow), and continue even after the lights turn off around 10:20 pm. The players consist of the organizers (who own the balls, so don't f***ing mess with them) and other regulars, as well as hundreds of other different people who fill up the tennis court. (Many people hope that another game will get started so that some of the extra 50 people that show up can play somewhere else as well).
Although arrogant tennis players attempted to shut down the dodgeball games, which only occur over about six hours every WEEK, the players succeeded in overcoming the tennis players, and got the tennis players to revert to the teaching ingrained into them during kindergarten of the concept of "sharing".
Located near Seattle Central University, dozens of people come every week just to watch the action, which is amusing to see and listen to.
If a person lives in Seattle and has not seen Seattle Street Dodgeball, they have not yet seen a key part of Seattle culture.
(on the court during a game)
"YOU CAN'T CATCH, BO!"
"BUT HE CAN THROW!"
"ERIN THE SNIPER!"
"THIS is Seattle Street Dodgeball"
"STOP THROWING IT TO MEEPLE!"
"BRING IT ON, OLD MAN!"
and thus it will continue for hours
