If You Can Dodge A Wrench, You Can Dodge A Ball

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.

Damn. Cold-blooded.

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.
