If you're in town for the holiday, you're welcome to join us for a fun afternoon of friendly but competitive football. We're considering playing Saturday as well and probably will if there's enough interest. We usually get 16-30 people out but at least 4 of our regulars are out of town for the holiday so we need fresh meat.

We play two hand touch anywhere on the ball carrier. Everybody else is subject to getting blocked hard or pushed around if you're attempting a block so don't come out if you're fragile. When we have enough players we do play with linemen so even if you're not in great shape or can't catch there's a place for you on the line.

What's the average age usually?

I dunno. We have some kids who show up sometimes, 15-16. I'd say most of us are late 20's through 30's. I'm 36, Wutamess is in his early 30's, and Dave Lane is 50. So we have a wide range. There's some good athletes who come out. It's a good time.

Were those kids that old? I was guesing 12-13. Or are you talking about Carlos' bunch? I'm horrible at guessing ages.

That little kid was a very small 14 or maybe even 15. He's probably the smallest kid we've had play with us and he actually held his own.

I might show up with a few friends since I'll be in town but we'll probably mop up the competition so I don't know how fun it would be for the rest of you guys...

I can come on Saturday, but not on Friday. I can bring a very large, athletic lineman with me.

I'd have to say I'm probably out this weekend. I'm staying up in St. Joe on Thursday night and getting back in time for Friday might be tough.

I'd like to play Saturday, but even if I plan to get to Arrowhead at 4 instead of 3, that still only leaves me like an hour and a half to play...

Carlos' friend Elijah went to block me on the very next play and I gave him a bloody lip. Like I told him after the game, I'm a bit of a douche.

I really don't get the whining. Christ its a game that no one is scoring, 2 minutes after its over. If we never kept score who cares? I'm just there to play as much as possible.

Oh and you had a damn good game Rag...

Rag was the one that got hit (by Cody) and fumbled and got up pissed.
That's what was so funny with his comment.

We could start at noon Saturday. My parents live a few blocks from there and I'll probably be headed over there afterwards. You're certainly welcome to bring your stuff and shower there if you wish.

I think the one most south.. Whatever is the opposite of north.. Maybe off of 350, no one listens to me though so I could be lying..

350 Hwy near 83rd St If you turn south off 350 onto 83rd you'll run into it half mile later.

What day do you think you might go? I am a maybe this weekend. Perhaps we could carpool. I would even split gas with ya. ;) Perhaps GURU would like to go, as well.

I have really, really been wanting to get back out there but it has been difficult the past few weeks. I did play football last weekend, but that was up at my dad's place near the Horton/Hiawatha area and with mostly a bunch of kids. Need to get back out to Raytown South and play some real ball.

I used Mapquest the first time. Hell, the first time I went there this year Phil's directions got me going the wrong direction on the street there. I ended up going by the middle school and then into the sticks.

Yea... That was a great game last week... Our safety's were getting creamed (me included) by Joe and Rag...

I was impressed with Phil and Roger, your passes were money both ways... did we end up winning?

You're only saying that because the money ones were to you. Heh. I'm not sure everybody else shares that opinion.

Yeah, we won. We didn't play much longer after you left. In fact, it was the shortest session of the year.

Phobia
11-21-2007, 12:48 PM
Please sound off just like Playmaker did in the last post exactly how you intend to play. If you can only make it one day, please be specific.

I'm up for both days if possible. At lot depends on the weather at this point. If we were playing today, obviously nobody would show. If there's snow on the ground people might show but it's really not much fun. Been there, done that.

Phobia

It's on. In addition to the guys we have from the Planet we also have regulars who show. Unless the weather is just horrible we'll play and we'll have enough. You should carpool with somebody from over in that area. Dave Lane and rageeumr drive the OP area. Carlos comes from Olathe (though he's out of town for the holiday).

We usually rotate on the O line so every one gets a chance to be a WR. We each play a few series on the line and its fun in small doses :)

That little kid was a very small 14 or maybe even 15. He's probably the smallest kid we've had play with us and he actually held his own.

If only his parents knew what he was doing... they'd be terrified!

"What have you been doing all day, son? Drugs? Sex? Murder?!?"

"Naw, just playing football with the guys from ChiefsPlanet!"

"OHHHHHHHHH GOD WHY!?!?!?!?"

Classless and deranged, you lot.
