best hipster exercise (2008)


All you need is a red ball, a field, old 12-inch singles for bases, and as many music industry vets, rock scribes, bartenders, record store clerks, and teachers you can round up over drinks on Friday night. That's what the BROOKLYN KICKBALL SOCIETY discovered two years ago when they started having their semi-regular Saturday kick- ball games. If you think indie rockers aren't competitive then you haven't been spiked by a base runner at second base. You get to run and kick things, have balls bounce off your head, slide in dog crap, drink beer, eat seven-layer dip—on second thought maybe it's not the greatest exercise.
