Fun & Games
It’s going to take a lot more than booze and burgers to keep you entertained. So here’s a few of the most beloved pregame activities.
Cornhole/Baggo: There’s a reason it’s become one of the most popular tailgating activities—it’s addicting. Who knew throwing a beanbag into a hole a few feet away actually required skill?
Beer pong: Having established that the parking lot is literally covered in piss, fill cups with cold water instead of beer while keeping a beer on the side. You should also invest in Pongitizer Ball Cleaner (available on Pongitizer.com). Unlike standard disinfecting wipes, they don’t contain chemicals you wouldn’t want to ingest.
Ladder Toss/Ladder Ball/Testicle Toss: If you thinking throwing two balls connected by a string (“bolas”) onto PVC pipes sounds like a game kindergartners could master, you’ve obviously never played.
Ladder Golf/Hillbilly Golf: Exactly like Ladder Toss, but with two golf balls.
Shuffle Shot/Sholf: These two portable outdoor games put a unique spin on shuffleboard. Sholf is played on the ground with golf putters while Shuffle Shot is a played on a tabletop.
The Phils have a potentially nightmarish start to the season with Ryan Howard out until early June and Chase Utley being absent from all spring training activities thus far. We don’t know exactly what’s wrong with Utley, other than his knee is shot.
Now, just in time for the start of another Phillies season, the curtain goes up next week on Xfinity Live!—a 60,000-square-foot sports and entertainment center owned by Comcast-Spectacor. And it’s dropped smack dab in the middle of the sports complex.
Well, it hasn’t been the start Philadelphia Union fans were hoping for, but perhaps the one they feared from the boys in blue as the Chester-based team heads into the 2012 fray after an offseason of upheaval and uncertainty.
Combining elements of football, basketball, soccer and rugby, ultimate Frisbee originated in the late 1960s at a high school in nearby Maplewood, N.J. Though the sport has gone international with teams in every corner of the globe, the Spinners will be one of the eight teams participating in the inaugural season of the American Ultimate Disc League.
Welcome to our annual Spring Guide. This year, we've devoted our pages to all things sports. It is, after all, the season of the fan. It's playtime, folks. Game on!
