FootbaLL: The Reckoning

Finding a field is a little bit like filling out the roster for a baseball team. You've got to figure out what your needs are, what your constraints are, and then act to the best of your ability to find the right fit.

We tried playing at Cal Anderson Park in Cap Hill but found it to be overrun by female soccer players, so we moved over to Seattle University's Championship Field, only to find that it was a mud hole.

Failing this, we attempted a game at Lynnwood High School, only to find out that Lynnwood High School is not actually in Lynnwood but instead in Bothell (18218 North Road / Bothell WA 98012). We had an excellent game there followed by good food, however the game started excruciatingly late (my bad) and required a jump of a fence in order to get on the field.

Our last two events have been held behind the newly turfed field at Garfield High School. The long trip into the city for some of our northern friends is less than ideal, however field conditions are on the whole pretty good, it is not too far from good post-game food, and we were able to utilize all 100 yards of the field, including kicking field goals, without the danger of trespassing.

But I found a potential third option. Loyal Heights Playground, positioned at 20th Ave. NW and NW 75th St. in Seattle, has a turf football field that does not have a reservation for 12/26. It is located near Golden Gardens, sandwiched between Greenwood and Ballard. If the field is in use anyway, we could schlep ourselves to Lower Woodland Park and see what's available there.

DETAILS BELOW MAY CHANGE, BUT WILL NOT CHANGE AS OF 12:00AM DEC. 24:

Saturday, December 26

We will start at Noon

We will play at Garfield High School, on 25th Avenue between Alder St. and Cherry St., Seattle

I have an extra pair of BLUE flags now, so we have something to give the person who is taking the role of "always offense." I would also like to suggest that if we manage to get 12 people, we should consider playing with no rule against rushing the QB, requiring that there be an offensive and defensive line. When you've got 11 receivers/DB's, it starts to become an INT-fest, it seems, anyway.
