Kansas City Pioneers Pickleball

Possibly the most important news item in the past few days, a look at a hipster pastime and how KC is leading the way in championing this burgeoning drinking game. Take a look:

less hipster - more middle age and older

^^ Not too sure about that, @8:17 - the courts at Chicken 'N Pickle in NKC always seem to be crowded with a mix of ages, genders and ethnicities. And the young people swarming across the River every night sure Look and Act like "Hipsters"

But someone with your extremely heightened "coolness" and "sensitivities" probably shouldn't go to NKC, the P&P District or Westport would better suit your level of sophistication.

Maybe "Bike/Walk KC" (or more accurately, Bike/"GET THE HELLOUT OF MY WAY" KC) can come up with a way to use KCMO Tax Money to combine their two-wheeled terrorism with Pickleball - now that would be a Spectator Sport!

Hmmmm- Pickle and balls. Probably should stay in the Crossroads district.

Lots of this played there.

Pickleball is growing very fast and last two years even the fancy rich folks at the country clubs are building Pickleball Courts. It's a fun low impact game for all to play. Sort of a badminton meets tennis style of play.

You fools in here bad mouthing it are who the real losers are in life. But spending your whole day trash talking what others say or do proves just how big a worthless nobody you are.
