It can be spent cherishing the memory of the day you reigned supreme on the wooden gridiron of organized skee-ball competition, or it can be spent always wondering if you had the stuff.
In other words, it’s time to man up.
Introducing SkeeNation, a new eight-week skee-ball league here to give you a taste of Asbury Park in the Hub, accepting registrations now for August.
You may be saying to yourself, “Show me the way, and I will follow,” so here it goes: they’re still assembling teams, so first you’ll want to register your squad, and there are two ways to do it. You could go here, or just hit up the free meet-and-greet skee toss at the Greatest Bar this Thursday, where you and a friend or two will sign up and choose a name (we’re fans of “BALL-E”).
Once the league starts up in August, you’ll gather on Thursdays for eight bloody weeks (okay, maybe just blistery weeks) and compete among 16 to 20 teams for glory. And don’t worry: uniforms aren’t required till week five (headbands and tube socks optional).
You can expect everything from trivia and theme nights (yes, one will be the ’80s) to cheap PBR tallboys, all while besting your fellow gladiators for the long-elusive title of “Skee-Ball Champion of Boston.”
We’ll start planning the parade now.
