Highlight of the Week – Backs Against the Wall

Backs Against the Wall

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“Our team Heisenball had been together uninterrupted for 6 straight seasons.  Spring of 2015 was the last season playing with our dear friends Mari and Mark as the the two had made plans to move to Florida over the summer.  We made it into the playoffs and went down 0-2 in the first round, but managed to win 3 straight to advance to the championship.  Unfortunately we wound up losing, and getting 2nd on the season, but wining 3 in a row with our backs against the wall was a great way to go out.

Where Has Your Zog T-Shirt Been?

There are new Zoggers, there are loyal Zoggers, and then there are die hard Zoggers.  Meet Jonathan, who doesn’t leave for a vacation without packing a ZogSports T-shirt for each day of his trip.

As the cold weather comes around, I think back to the nice summer weather and times on vacation, with my ZogSports Shirts!!!!

When I got home from college four years ago, my brother asked me to play dodgeball with him in the city.  I immediately said yes just out of my enjoyment of playing sports and competitive nature.  We did not do well that year, I think we only won one game but I had a lot of fun and got a bright pink T-shirt.  The next year we decided to play again.  This year was a little different, I got a yellow T-shirt and we won the championship.  I decided that the yellow shirt was more special than the pink shirt, so I got rid of the pink one.  Over the next few years I continued to play Zog dodgeball, but also added in kickball and basketball.  As the number of sports I played for Zog increased, so did my number of Zog t-shirts.  I was unsure what I should do with them all since they took up a whole pile in my drawer.  My brother even added a Zog ref shirt to my collection [as a holiday gift one year] that he found at the Salvation Army (because I loved getting to ref during dodgeball games).IMG_1069

While I was packing for a family vacation to the beach, I realized I needed shirts to wear on the beach.  And what would be better than a wide range of brightly colored Zog shirts?  I packed a different color for each day I was going to be at the beach.  Each day I would walk out with a different shirt and people would ask what sport that shirt was from.

These ZogSports shirts have now become my favorite vacation shirt.  I plan on continuing to play Zog for the enjoyment of playing sports and to add to my shirt collection.  So far my shirts have made it to Jersey, Cape Cod, and Florida.  Next summer I will be adding to the list.  Where has your Zog T-shirt been?

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Jonathan.  We’d be happy to add to your collection if you’re missing any colors.

Highlight of the Week – Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

My highlight as a first-time Zogger this year was winning the Kickball Championship! There’s nothing better than having a fun night to look forward to during the long work week, spending time with your good friends and most importantly, giving back to the community for great causes. On behalf of my team, the Kick-Intartaglias, thank you ZogSports for this awesome opportunity in the city of brotherly love!

Malia Obama Offered Free ZogSports After Partying

malia tweet

In case you missed it, Malia Obama was recently spotted at a party with college kids while scoping out Brown University.  Sources say she was taking shots and playing beer pong and it was supes casual, because why wouldn’t it be?  Because she’s the POTUS’ first born?  Because she brought her entourage of secret service personnel?  Psh!  Whateva, she does what she wants.

malia

What sources DIDN’T tell you is that she, being the smart girl that she is, is simply practicing for her soon-to-be, long-lasting career as a loyal Zogger.  Yes, we know she’ll easily be able to land her dream job at the snap of a finger, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be able to show up her opposing kickball team in a post-game beer pong rally just as easily – that one’s gonna take some practice.  And we get it, Malia.  We totally get it.  She has high standards to live up to and everyone is going to EXPECT her to be good at everything – even beer pong.

So, keep practicing, Malia (although practice with water cups, because we don’t condone underage drinking), and on your 21st birthday, we want you to come show us your skills!  We are offering you a ZogSports season in any sport on us.  And if you want to get the whole family involved, remember we have ZogSports in DC!

Malia – Come find us on July 4, 2019 and we’ll talk.  Or better yet, we’ll find you. 🙂

Cheers!

And if YOU want to show off your beer pong skills, join a team with America’s most popular coed, social sports league!

You play ZogSports to make new friends, keep playing your favorite sports, give back, and experience a highlight every week.  Now it’s time to meet the people that help deliver those highlights.  Let’s go Behind the Scenes with Field Team Supervisors:

Meet Darnell!

Jpeg

Darnell is a Field Team Supervisor for NYC Football.

Z: How long have you been with ZogSports?

D: Player since fall 2005, ref since spring 2006

Z: Why do you love working for ZogSports?

D: I love working for ZogSports, because meeting new people is always great, and Zog provides continuous chances to do so.  I love the opportunity to help someone new to the city or someone that’s shy have a great experience and make some new friends.  And I love being a part of the fun both on the field and off.

Z: Do you have advice for the best pickup line to use at a ZogSports happy hour?

D: Don’t be corny, just say “hi”.  Alternately, challenge her to a bar game!

Z: What has been your ZogSports highlight?

D: A recent highlight I’m proud of was helping a new dodgeball team that was having a really rough time against veteran opponents still have a good night by making jokes and keeping it fun(ny) for them.  They went from wanting to leave mid match to smiling and laughing. That was a great ending to my shift.

Highlight of the Week – Reaching the Promised Land

Reaching the Promised Land

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“My team has been playing rec soccer since Winter 2011 (this fall is our 17th season as a team, 10th with Zog). My Zog highlight was our first championship. After three years of knocking on the door, we finally triumphed in Fall 2014. It was a magical season; we squared off against our nemesis, Goal Diggers. We had won narrow victories twice during the regular season. In a grueling championship game we finally reached the promised land in a dramatic PK showdown. I’ll never forget the final shot, knowing we’d secured the championship. As we all sprinted toward the goal to celebrate, the feeling was pure joy.”
