Why are adults playing kickball at the Youth Sports Complex? Also I’ve also noticed the adults have been bringing alcohol. Is that legal?

Adult kickball league games are being held at the complex because of a lack of field space at the other sports complexes. However, youth leagues have priority and will be scheduled first, said Megan Gilliland, city of Lawrence spokeswoman. Alcohol is not permitted in any public parking lots pursuant to city code, unless a special permit has been issued. Additionally, alcohol is not allowed at parks and facilities owned by the city of Lawrence and operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation without a permit, Gilliland said.

We might be playing at the Youth Sports Complex, but we're on the soccer fields, so far away that your children look like ants. Don't worry, your children won't be tainted by our foul, crude, intense kickball behavior.

And I seriously doubt that the alcohol consumption causes so much of a problem that anyone would need to passive aggressively call attention to its existence...

Whoever wrote this needs to get a hobby that isn't ratting out his or her fellow Lawrencians. None of the players in this kickball league come to whatever you do to relax on the weekends and ostracize you.

And why are we playing there? Because we paid the city hard-earned money to play there.

Kickball hooligans? As long as they aren't stabbers, spilling oil or trying to raise taxes we should leave them alone

First it's kickball and beer. Then motocross and beer. Before you know it there will be monster truck rallys and beer. Where does it all stop?

(Let me know when tickets go on sale)
