We played “Social Justice Football” with the kids at the Catholic Worker House this week on a somewhat soggy field. In Social Justice Football, everybody gets a chance to run, pass, catch… And although the score was 21 to 14, in Social Justice Football that really doesn’t matter. (Except to the team that won and the team that lost, of course. Ok, so I’m not a purest.) Note: During our Campaign 2000 travels, we came across “Itch Field” (a lot of misquitoes) in tiny Arthur, Illinois. Some Amish guys had cut this ball diamond out of a corn field, ala Field of Dreams. I was told there was competition at “the Itch,” but not too much competition, during the games. As an example, a guy who was developmentally disabled played first base next to another infielder who could have been on a high school All Star team. If only the society at large mirrored this paradigm more, huh.
