New Hobby: Bocce Ball


They are totally going to do it later.

Okay, so I’m going to be on this podcast, You, Me, Them, Everyone, that’s recorded live at a bar here in DC called The Looking Glass Lounge. (Had a date here once. New Year’s. Second date. It was fun if not mildly awkward at times.)

It sounds really cool.

I decide to listen to an episode just to see what it’s all about. I like to be prepared and a friend of mine commented that the host, Brandon Weatherbee, is a little angry. (This scared me. However, on my first listen, I’d say maybe he’s incensed, but not angry. And besides, how could someone with a cool name like Weatherbee ever be angry? My last name sounds like a sneeze and I’m not angry.)

Anyway, I’m listening to the podcast and the couple who formed the DC Bocce League (you heard me: Bocce league, which I coincidentally just learned about Tuesday, which makes me think it’s fate and I should be on this league) are on talking about Bocce, naturally, and the woman says that Bocce is great for dating. My ears perk up like my cat’s when he hears a can being opened. Apparently, the league has spawned four married couples and you can even buy Bocce onesies for your Bocce babies. Cute.

Anyway, best part is Brandon asks Bocce lady if she’s ever gotten laid (as a direct result of being a part of the Bocce league, I presume) and she was like “Who hasn’t?”

It’s much funnier when you listen to the podcast. I promise.

Anyway, if you’re looking for someone to take romantic pics with when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom or maybe someone just to have spring sex with, play Bocce. I encourage it.

I also encourage coming to the show on Monday, 3/14, 8:30pm.

  1. Haha! My 21st first date took place earlier this week to a Hibachi restaurant but when I was telling my co-worker about it, she thought I said a “Bocce restuarant…” Evidently she was on to something!

  2. I dunno… whenever I’ve passed a bocce court (court?) out here it always seems to be just a bunch of old guys. Not exactly my type…

  3. Bocce will absolutely get you laid.

      And there you have it. Bocce = sex. But is it like craigslist where all you can find is sex? What about good ole meeting people and dating (which may or may not lead to sex)?
