Incredibly feral game which many schools are now banning for some (presumably stupid) reason. I am, sadly,a victim of these decisions; thelast good dodgeball game I played was in 7th grade. Many variations of this game exist, but most of them involve flinging soft, medium-sized foam balls at one another on 2 sides of a line. Getting hit makes you 'out.' Occasionally, provisions are added to reverse the 'out' status, but they usually involve teamwork of some sort.
I felt that the dodgeball game, becoming more and more fast-paced and violent, was the pinnacle of physical education class. Then I felt the burning sting of the foam ball as I realized, "Don't think, MOVE!"

A game involving two teams, generally made up of school children in a gym class, and a variety of various sized rubber balls. The object of the game is to ostracize the fat, the slow, and the pussies from the rest of the group by pummelling them with the balls, making them cry, lose their glasses, and have to sit 'out' for the rest of the game. It was unfortunately banned from most schools in the late nineties due to the rise of the fat, the slow, and the pussies to positions of high educational authority positions.
Jimmy: Remember the good old days when we played dodgeball in gym instead of learning underwater basket-weaving?
Johnny: Yeah, like when I hit Fat Fritz in the face and broke his nose to get him out? Good times, man. Good times.

Proves who's cool and who's a bitch
And tuffins even the biggest of pussies

Could thier be a connection?

In Germany, many students play an improved version of dodgeball, in which one person of each team (called "angel") is playing around the other team so he/she can circle around it. Members of the same team can pass the ball to this person so that the attacked team can be confronted not only from one but from every side.
Also after an opponent has caught a ball, the person who has thrown is not out.
The people that did not manage to catch a ball, have to join the "angel". By that, winning is becoming more difficult for the better team.
When one team has only one person left within the field, the "angel" comes in as a reinforcement. He/She then has 2 lives meaning the angel can be hit 2 times by the ball, before he/she is finally out.
The game is often played with softballs.
Try it! It is really much more fun than the old dodgeball and by adding another ball, it can really get crazy

1. A game played most often in middle-school gym class. Usually fun, although often ends up to the social exclusion of nerds, dorks, etc. Can also be very painful to play. Essentially, people throw foam or rubber balls at the people on the other team. If you're hit, you're out,if you catch it, the thrower is out. Usually enjoyed by jocks and athletic people. Un-athletic people, such as myself, always leave the dodge ball field to a stream of boos and "You suck for being a wimp!"s. It's still damn fun, though. Is currently being banned from many schools.

2. The balls used in said game.

Nerd: *Throws ball*
Jock: *catches ball easily* YOU SUCK, WIMP!
Nerd: *leaves field*


I got a concussion because I was hit with a dodgeball thrown at the speed of light by that jock over there.

2. The only thing George W. Bush seems not to suck at.

1. Normal kid: Hey wussy! I can't wait to beat the hell out of you at dodgeball today!
Nerdy kid: Well I'll get my revenge when I'm your boss in 15 years!
Normal kid: Then I'd better finish you off.

badass sport being banned by schools for the crime of teaching survival skills
Dorks and the fat have their place, and it isn't on a dodgeball field.
