dodgeball world record

From 9 minutes before the finish...

The world record dodgeball match at the Washington Ave Armory finished up late this afternoon. The two teams -- Albany Dodgeball and Hometown Dodgeball -- smashed the record by playing for 31 hours, 11 minutes and 13 seconds.

Sebastien's posted a photoset from the finish. And Joe has a set from the 16-hour mark, including some stats (deodorant applications: 2).

I want to say congrats to both teams! I wanted to be there for finish but wasn't able to make it.

I spotted by to see the Crew with about 21 hours left and they were chugging hard. Those late night hours couldn't have been fun.

Congrats again on the Record!
