Ben Stiller in Dodgeball: A True Underdog StoryEvery few months I see articles popping up about that timeless playground sport, dodgeball. Here’s another one. Grown adults are starting leagues, tournaments and pick-up games and whipping rubber balls at each other. Dodgeball was the unofficial game of my youth group in high school, something we’d play religiously after every Wednesday night meeting.

I’d probably get trounced if I played now, but it’d still be fun.

The article also mentions an upcoming Ben Stiller movie, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. It also stars Stephen Root of Office Space fame, which is just too perfect. It opens June 18th.

  1. The “Dodgeball” movie with Ben Stiller looks hilarious. I’ve loved him ever since his short-lived FOX show, “The Ben Stiller Show.” He’s just got “the funny” goin’ on.

  2. Hmmm…I’m not a big Stiller fan. But, I would like to see that dude throw tools at the “Average Joe” guys. That could be worth paying for.

  3. I know this is odd, but one of the reasons I’m looking forward to seeing this movie is to hear the sound (over and over again) that dodgeballs make when they bounce off stuff and hit things. It’s a kinda hollow, ringing “fwinnnnnggg” sound, and I’ve always loved it. I don’t know why.
