Halloween Portrait

zombiekickball 01
I discovered a flyer for a "zombie kick ball" game last weekend. Little did I realize what I would encounter was more of an exercise in performance art than sport. The players seemed to be trapped in the role of "zombie" as they slowly dragged their undead limbs across the baseball diamond "chasing" the ball, moving from base to base, and eventually across home plate. Bodies were on the ground more often than not, and the game moved at a painfully slow pace (even compared to a normal baseball / kickball game). I was fairly sure the participants were not so much interested in being competitive as they were in being zombies. This was confirmed an hour or so later as the game abruptly ended and someone yelled "Game Over. The zombies win!"
