Budgetball? Really?


What is Budgetball?

We Gen-Xers have, for much of our life, watched educators attempt to Make Learning Fun by using games and computers. Usually it’s a painful failure but it lets someone spend some grant money and play with some gadgets, but once in a while something worthwhile comes along.

I suppose it was inevitable till someone tried to Make Lobbying Fun, or maybe Make Public Awareness Fun at the same time. Certainly this is glitzier than Ross Perot’s graphs and charts back in the 90s. Beyond that, however, you’ll have to show up for yourself on Sunday for the Budgetball exhibition tournament on the Mall.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
