Lots of alcohol and girls playing in the mud. That is one tradition that should never die. That sounds like a good company picnic.

I've seen a couple of these in college with sororities playing each other, brutal is the only word to describe it.

The school where this happened, Gleenbrook North, was the high school location for the movie "The Breakfast Club." I've been there, and went in to the library with that big ugly sculpture and thought, "Huh. So this is it."

Well thats what they get for messing with Buttercup!

Girls are so much more brutal than guys when they decide to be. The only fight I've ever been horrified and scared watching was two girls going at it. They both ended up in the hospital with broken bones and dislocated limbs.

I'd like to see the videotape.

I cheerleaded at my powderpuff game in high school. About girls got bloody noses and two got concussions, and, I think, one of the girls with concussions had a fractured skull.

It was cool.

About girls = about 6 girls

GBN is also Ferris Bueller's high school, including the scene in which he picks up Sloane from school.

It's also John Hughes' alma mater, which explains a lot.

By the way, Northbrook was once called Shermerville, thus proving Jay only somewhat correct.

There is still, however, a main road in town called Shermer Road.

ccccccccc cat fight!
2003-05-06 06:39:08 PM  
Um, this happened at all our powder puff games. Not really news if you ask me.
2003-05-06 06:46:29 PM  
I got bit in the head at a powder puff game once. By my own team mate. We had so many roughness calls that the 20 minute game turned into 1 1/2 hours. Good Times. didn't help that my whole team was drunk, but whatever.

Are they sure it wasn't just the Batley Townswomens' Guild re-enacting the Battle of Pearl Harbor??
2003-05-06 06:47:07 PM  
how do you play "powder-puff football"? are there any rules?
2003-05-06 06:49:16 PM  
Five sent.....

Is he related to fitty cent?
2003-05-06 06:49:26 PM  
the first rule of powder puff is YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT POWDER PUFF!

2003-05-06 06:51:18 PM  
Powder Puff games have never been "oh so sweet as a little puff of powder." Powder puff games were the best place in my high school to get rid of PMS. Eat some chocolate, back in the game, beat the crap out of someone. Worked like a charm.
Women have the ability to be real ass kickers. And we've got some twisted hormones to push us along. Catch us on the wrong day of the month... you better be wearing a cup!

Damn, how many farkers are from the Chicago/Northbrook area?

I'm in the burbs, 40 miles west of Chicago
2003-05-06 06:54:25 PM  
So I see the headline and think to myself, "What the hell was that rapper doing at a powder puff game, and what happend to send him to the hospital?" Once I realized that it read "5 sent" and not "5 cent" I thought it'd be funny to throw up a pic of the guy and make a funny comment, but I could find a pic of this '5 cent' guy.

Then I realized it's '50 cent' that I'm thinking of....

Yo! And the MajjinX up there is one of my best friends, so I know I can count him in. I'm currently in Ohio for school, but should be coming back home to good ol' Northbrook in about a week after finals are over.

DAMMIT! Girls DO this and I've never even heard of it until now???? FARK MY SHELTERED LIFE FARK IT!!!!!

Fark seems to be good at the "where was this when I was in high school?" stories.

A senior girl, who did not want to be named, was not at the game but said it is an annual "initiation" of junior girls involving "a lot of alcohol."

Certain senior girls select junior girls to play; guys watch on the sidelines, she said. "If you do it junior year, you organize it senior year," the student said. "It's hazing, pretty much. . . . I think it's the most degrading thing going on."

Sounds like someone's envious. 10-1 that this student would either snap like a twig when confronted with physical contact or could comprise the whole team herself. Whatever it is, she ain't in on it and is trying to ruin it for the rest of them.

Damn D&D-loving, black cloak wearing, pasty-skinned wubba hubba. Go back to suing to be valedictorian.

this story turned me on....i feel so dirty
2003-05-06 07:18:35 PM  
Powderpuff is great to watch. So much tension gets let out.

There is actually a women's pro football team in OKC. I don't know what the team is named, how many teams are in the league, or if it is even still around after last year. All I know is my girlfriend (track star @ OU) was asked to play WR. She looked at the roster and pics. of the team, saw she wasn't a lesbian, and promptly told them no.

title 9-esqe equality? not really wanted.
2003-05-06 07:22:47 PM  
Actually, I just asked her, and she said they were called "Oklahoma City Wildcats".
2003-05-06 07:29:08 PM  
I went to my High School's Powderpuff game when I was a junior. It was dumb. They played by the first to 21 rule so it took like 5 hours (no, seriously).

It's not real football even, it's just a bunch of girls in taped up t-shirts pretending to play. I don't think any of them actually knew the rules. They just kept throwing the ball to one or two people and having them run it all the way through. I don't think the purpose is football so much as it was girls bashing each other.

It's kind of funny because after every tackle, they'd dog pile on whoever had the ball for absolutely no reason. Probably because they thought that was how it was played.

I think that's how these girls got injured.

Good old high school days.
2003-05-06 07:45:48 PM  
hope it hasn't been done yet
2003-05-06 07:46:33 PM  
damn it, I went to GBN too, class of 2000

2003-05-06 07:51:53 PM  
I coached the senior squad at my high school and a sorority girls squad in college.

Total tally of injuries for all the games:

7 twisted ankles
1 torn acl
1 torn mcl/medial miniscus (sp?)
2 concussions
1 cracked rib
Too many stitches to count

Fun times, fuuunnnn times.
2003-05-06 08:05:29 PM  
Sounds like it could be good, rough fun, but for the idiots who don't know when to quit.
