Capture the Flag
Go long: play football, win money.
We've got football envy. We want the glory, the cash and, most important, video of ourselves humiliating the competition. On Saturday, August 28, and Sunday, August 29, we'll get our chance at the Goin' Deep 4-on-4 Flag Football Summer Cash Tournament at Byron Barry Elementary School, 2533 North 60th Avenue. We might even sign up for the upcoming season, which starts on September 11. Goin' Deep dishes out cash prizes, trophies and gift certificates, and offers videotapes for us vain mo-fos. Registration for the tourney, $200 to $250 per team, ends Friday, August 27. Call 623-205-6771 or see www.goindeepfootball.com. --Joe Watson
