Dodgeball ban (Fox News, 2010)

It’s still too hot for me to do anything productive… I know it’s not videogames, but it’s play.

Personality VG researcher Patrick Markey posted a Fox News interview about some schools in West Virginia banning dodgeball because it’s harmful to kids. I tilted my head at impossible angles while reading the news prompts. Now you be the judge of the funny news.

  1. Maybe we should pad the floors and wall as well, because if a child is running and falls they might get hurt. GET A GRIP. If you don’t want your child to play, tell them not to. If kids are not agile or fast enough to play something then they should not play. I was not tall enough to be a basketball player, should they disallow basketball also. I also was not big enough to play football, will that be banned, I think not. I was fast enough to run track, and yes there were some heavy kids that could not run track so they didn’t. Teach your kids to deal with life, don’t ban things because they can’t win, all you are doing is making them week. This is also true for the crap of “every kid gets a trophy”, no, everyone doesn’t win, someone has to lose, that what makes winning, “winning”. 1st place is the winner, 2nd and 3rd were close, everyone else lost. Deal with it or don’t play, but don’t try to take things away from the ones who can deal with loosing or want to play just because it’s fun.
