The Calvinball Sports Complex



Hobbesville, North Carolina (Strutts News Services) – The importance of the coin toss increases a googlefold in the Calvinball Arena, but is negated by the hydraulics that control the field allowing line judges to place competing bets while manipulating field conditions, including windstorms and artificial rain.  All players may or may not be line judges, and there may be as many line judges as players, including none.  Every player is a referee and may interpret any other referee’s call while placing bets with the line judges. Video review is frequently used for re-interpretation of The Rules without stopping play.

    plane– Do you think Calvinball is or ever was boring? Ooh. Okay. Pendulum is in. Nevermind. We’re on the same team. Unless the score is Ooga to Booga, the field is level to infinity. Pass it on, in inverse-latin to score a negative boink.
