16. Getting Your Kicks
Kickball is fun for all ages, suitable for even the profoundly uncoordinated, and healthier than eating hot dogs in the bleachers. The game's setup and rules are like baseball's. The field: home plate, pitcher's mound, three bases (placemats or garbage can lids will do). The team: pitcher, catcher, infielders, outfielders. Official World Adult Kickball Association rules: five innings; each team gets a turn to kick. Three strikes and you're out; three outs and it's the other team's turn. Every time you round home base, your team scores. And you can throw the ball to tag other players, but keep it below the shoulders. Afterward, bask in the glow of knowing you've earned that hot dog.
