WORD basketball league
March 5, 2009
As subscribers to our newsletter already know, WORD is setting up a basketball league for book people. From the newsletter:
“Have you spent your entire life feeling really weird because you like both books and basketball?
Well, luckily for you, WORD feels your pain and wants to make it all better.
We’re starting a summer basketball league. Not quite sure what format, yet–that’ll be determined by how many people join up. But we’ve got American Playground across Franklin Street and we are determined to use it. Both men and women are welcome. The league will play from May to August, and we’ll do our best to work with everybody’s schedules.
One catch: this league is for book lovers only. In order to participate, email the answers to the following five questions to email@example.com:
1. Who wrote Ulysses?
Send the answers along with your name and you’ll be signed up! And please forward to the other basketball and book-loving freaks you know.”
Don’t worry, we’ll keep posting on the blog about it, to make sure that those who don’t want to play but do want to watch can come by and cheerlead.
3/31/09 UPDATE: The registration period for this league will close Friday, April 3, at noon.
