Whirlyball = so much fun!

So last night Jim and I joined a bunch of other people for a thrilling night of Whirlyball. According to the website,

"Whirlyball, dubbed “the world’s only totally mechanized team sport”, is best described as a combination of Basketball, Hockey and Jai-Alai played while riding an electrically powered machine, similar to a bumper car, called a WhirlyBug. Although the WhirlyBug resembles a bumper car, it is a far superior machine. Quicker, stronger and far more maneuverable, the WhirlyBug powers you and your team down court in a five on five game".

It was so much fun! I even scored a goal which is SO not easy! I do have a few battle wounds from the seat belt digging into me during one of the multiple head-on collisions, and the steering rod being jammed into my leg from another collision, but I would totally do it again.

Here's a few pics - not the best, but you get the idea.

One of my faves as you can see the #27 car occupant get thrown forward during a collision.
