Turf Toe Tuesday

>> Tuesday, July 7, 2009

It seems as though community members in Owensboro, Kentucky have started an adult kickball league that grew out of various fundraising events. The Owensboro Parks and Recreation kickball league is in its 3rd season and gives coworkers from local businesses an opportunity to relive their childhood days in 7th grade P.E. We all remember playing kickball in 7th grade P.E. Everyone wanted to be on that one kids team. You know, the kid, his name was probably Roy or Chad, who was a little bigger than everyone else, had facial hair, a stain on his plain red shirt and wore jeans year round. He could kick a ball 4,000 yards and was still competing in 7th grade P.E. when you were in 8th grade.

So what does any of this have to do with Turf Toe? Well one of the team names in this particular kickball league has a team name of Turf Toe. I wonder if the mascot is a big toe? Currently, the kickball league is the only one in the region. The league is usually made up of 6 to 10 teams each playing 10 regular season games with a single elimination tournament. With team names such as Turf Toe, I look for more kickball leagues to develop throughout the nation. I mean I would certainly join a kickball league.
