Alternative titles: “It’s Hard To Hold Your Beer And Cigarette While Pitching a Kickball” or “What Will The Hipsters Tell Us Is Cool Next?” Although I must admit, I played kickball at SXSW a couple years ago. I sucked. Major.

Tien and Shannan were playing in a Brooklyn league so we went along to watch them play. Yvan joined in, but Jeannette & Jess and I just watched the game and watched someone’s dog who was playing.
