Photos from Syracuse Kickball #Tweetup2011!

On Saturday, July 16, 2011, Frank (@dagsly) and I (@deafgeoff) hosted a kickball tweetup at Onondaga Lake Park to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Twitter going public. Frank was the captain for “Team @Ev” and I was the captain for “Team @Biz,” and what ensued was an afternoon of nerdy fun, pseudo-athleticism, and delicious refreshments with new and old friends!

Mitch, who umpired the game, wrote a summary of the day’s events. It was a little ridiculous because most of us hadn’t played kickball since grade school, and the heat was rough, but we had fun. Team @Ev won fairly, 18-15, despite a controversial call in the bottom of the last inning. I threatened to go Ron Artest on Mitch, and he threw me out. (Not seriously.)

Most people brought refreshments, and we also enjoyed having cheerleaders in Sunny (she took most of the photos), Katie and “Little Man.” All in all, it was a great time.

  1. Great stuff, and thanks for the links to both what I wrote and Sunny’s images, none of which I’d seen before. I hadn’t realized there was a picture of me anywhere; gotta go grab that one. lol
