Dodgeball may be one of our favorite sports of all time for one reason alone: it’s the ultimate example of “adding insult to injury.”
Injury: First, smack somebody in the face with a ball.
Plus Insult: Then make them sit on the sidelines as punishment.
So how about a brief history of how Dodgeball became today’s American pastime? Which by “brief history” we mean a collection of videos of people getting knocked out cold.
