The longstanding question of how good Batman would be at dodgeball was finally answered on Monday, as the “Caped Crusader” made up for his limited dodging ability by being an astounding catcher with a decent throwing arm.
Though instead of teaming up with his super powered friends during the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Halloween dodgeball night, his teammates included the likes of Fiona from Shrek, a cross-dressing nurse, a
punch-drunk boxer, a couple of knights and even Smurfette. The odd combination wasn’t enough to lead his team, Toaster, to victory over the Ten Phat Kidz, however, as a surprisingly agile Zombie bride and her army of “phatties” won 10-4 in the thrilling affair.
The Ten Phat Kidz are now the only unbeaten team in the recreational tier of dodgeball at 5-0 and Toaster dropped to 1-4. The Dodgers (4-1) fell 10-4 to Team Excellence (3-2) for the first blemish on their record.
Meanwhile, the Chuck ‘N Duckers improved to 4-1 with a 10-0 victory over the Pumped Up Donkeys (0-5), the Incredaballs (3-2) won 10-2 over the Fighting Amish (2-3)
and the Wrenches (2-3) threw the whole toolbox at the Blazing Balls (1-4) to win 10-4.
There are two weeks left in the season until the playoffs begin, though the winter league is not far off. Registration opens for winter dodgeball on Nov. 15, as well as other CVSSC sports in volleyball, indoor soccer and floor hockey.
