  1. sweet. sweet. I wonder if anyone sneeks in iceballs or street slush balls like we did back in the day. Nothing like the feeling of getting hit in the back of the head by a five pound ball of icy, salty slush and have it run down your back under your coat.

  2. Sounds a lot like paintball! ‘All Skyward teammates, who range in age between 21 and 33, are single.’ Yep, sounds a *lot* like paintball! 🙂

  3. Wow. I had totally missed that. Funny. But I must admit that I like getting hit by paintballs more than by ice balls or slush balls that go down your back like Buckethead said. Except for that one over-the-shoulder paintball hit on the inside of my mouth sheild that left me eating paint… Dead! DEAD! WAY DEAD!
