My co-workers sometimes like me to get hurt. I can't blame them, but this one was a little humorous. Seems Photographer JJ teamed up with John Martin and plotted part of my demise. "Hey Erin, we signed you up for a dodgeball dare!"

Yep, my first thoughts went to the movie that came out a couple of years ago. Ah and the memories of Computer Jake calling me "Peaches O'Donovan" whenever he had to read these web things.

I figured I was game and it might be fun.

The folks over at the Knoxville Sports & Social Club were game as well... trouble.

I had no idea what to expect. I just remember a huge red ball from when I was a younger kid. Well even that has changed. It's a little ball that those guys can chuck at an uncomfortable speed.

I was put with a team, and I apologized to those guys a few times. Just because I had no idea how this was going to pan out.

Needless to say, I was not as bad as I thought, but I'm sure that Global Gym will not be calling me anytime soon. Our team did not win, but hey, it's all about the teamwork right? Yep, that's what I am telling myself, although they might be complaining about me. It's ok. I can take it. I'll cry later.

Is this why no one asked me to be on the station kickball team?

Big thank you to my team and to the nice people who all slammed the ball at me at the end of the night
