It's been a while since we got a new sport -- tennis dates to 12thC France, golf to medieval England, and baseball to a time when half the country hated the Yankees. Huh, the more things change... To enjoy a sport invented partially because there'd been a lull in new ones, get out and play some Kronum.
Cooked up in the 'burbs, Kronum's debuting its rec league this year, giving you a chance to play this outdoor ball game that mixes the hand skills of basketball with the footwork of soccer, and requires "the full range of human athleticism - speed; agility; flexibility; multi-directional mobility; strength; aerobic fitness; dexterity of hands, feet, and mind", proving that Michael C. Hall is good at more than just handsomely murdering other murderers. Some rules:
You can sign up for the rec league now, or if you'd rather remain blissfully inactive, "fans" of the organized teams can vote online to set the starting lineups and game strategies, which for the Yankees this year will presumably be "Cry about Cliff Lee while feeding A-Rod popcorn."
