Highlight of the Week – Found a Home

FB_IMG_1433186634618

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

I’ve played in almost all of the social sports leagues in Washington DC in practically every sport offered. But my friends and I have definitely found a home playing Saturday Softball with ZogSports as the “Fighting Randos.” I’ve dabbled in other sports with Zog, but there’s a sense of comfort whenever I set my gear bag down on the dugout benches at the New York Avenue Playground, put on my face mask, and jog out to the pitchers mound. So for me, any Zog highlight will always feature the “Randos” and over the course of the past couple of years, there are quite a few memories and classic moments that come to mind. However, nothing can top the Spring 2015 Championship Game between us and “Hit and Run.” The “Randos” and “Hit and Run” had been involved in a friendly rivalry during that spring.

Go Randos!

Everyday Were Shufflin

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I’ve really enjoyed having a chance to unwind after a long and stressful day at work by hanging out with friends and having a few drinks over a game of shuffleboard or skeeball. It’s also been a great opportunity to meet and socialize with other young professionals in the city. I look forward to being a part of future ZogSports bar leagues!

Highlight of the Week – All About The Glory

Sandy Balls

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“We only had 3 players for playoffs, but still wanted to show up and play. We threw down the gauntlet and wanted to play for glory!

So we challenged them to 3v6 and took to the sand. Our toes were numb and we initially went down 0-6. But did we give up? I think not. The three of us dug deep inside and mounted a glorious comeback, winning 21-17.

So… Never give up, even if you don’t have enough players. It’s all about the glory – not the scoresheet. Sandy balls fo’ life.”

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!

Highlight of the Week – Reaching the Promised Land

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.”

Highlight of the Week – More Fun Than You

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“It was so great playing with everyone on my team, the playoffs got a little intense but I can honestly say I feel like we had more fun than any other team throughout the season. It was a pleasure playing with everyone. I wouldn’t change our team for anything. Again, it was truly a honor to play.”
