yeah, keith cummings used to take a special pleasure in beating me silly with the ball. i don't think i could ever feel comfortable playing games with balls being kicked or thrown at me ever again. i'd always have to look over my shoulder to see if the little terror was trying to gut me with it again!
I always loved playing kickball, being from MN, we had to play in the school gym a lot of time, and they turned it into something called Big Base...think kickball with gym mats as bases and kids don't have to run if they don't want to. I grew up playing soccer, so I loved it. This sounds like a lot of fun personally.
