“no idea what’s happening on the field at Walter Pierce Park but can I play?”

Thanks to Betsy for sharing this awesomeness. I remember we saw these guys near the Shaw skate park last year. The game is Bubble Ball:

    This is the most millennial thing I have ever seen.

      Wait until they put brooms between their legs and start playing in the Bubble Ball Quidditch league!
      PS – those sweaty bubbles look gross.

      I have many cranky old person tendencies, but I cannot figure out how anyone could object to this. And I think it looks kinda fun, though probably gross and sweaty, as OP Anon says.

    Young me says this looks like a blast. Old me says it looks like a torn ACL.

  • Sheesh

    I hope that when you all are on your death beds you think, “I’m so glad I spent so much time complaining about millennials. What a great use of my life.”

    These guys will be on their death beds with the robotic no-tear ACLs one of them invented with their 3D printers thinking, “Man, bubble ball was f*cking sweet.”

      +1 for positivity!

    • This is Awkward

      Millennials are the new hippies in that folks find them to be a truly irresistible scapegoat for everything they have grumpy feelings about. Like any generation, millennials are diverse; they include lots of clueless kids that have been overindulged by their parents, but also “older” folks in their 30s, and plenty of people that have well-paying jobs, responsibilities, an education, etc. Millennials are not all Miley Cyrus poster children, just like I’m sure not everyone grumping about them on here are upper-middle income suburban transplants who think everything they want is somehow their “right”.

      I don’t complain about any generation as a group – I’m not that stupid. As a younger boomer, though, I am sick of hearing millennials tell me I should retire already as they want the jobs – I say “on what? are you going to support me?” Given that I’m currently unemployed because employers would rather hire young folks, I do get sick of hearing that.

  • BRP

    they all look like they were having a blast!

    Bubble soccer is really fun, but yes…very, very sweaty and kind of hard to breathe. And the bubbles weigh 25-30 pounds, so pretty exhausting.

  • OP Anon

    Only appropriate song for this thread:
    “Bucephalus Bouncing Ball”

  • RockYoBubbleWorld

    I’m 6,6″ and weight 350lbs. I feel like this is a game I could dominate. I’m a free agent
