Jonas Brothers to Come to Valley and Play, Yes, Kickball
In what will probably be described sarcastically as a "dream come true," by fathers of 10-year-old girls across the Valley, the Jonas Brothers are scheduled to play in a public kickball game in Peoria in August.
The pop-tarts -- who vehemently campaign for chastity, clean living, and just about everything else the rest of us mortals do to have fun -- have agreed to play a game of kickball at the Peoria Sports Complex on August 11th against 104.7 KISS deejays Johnjay and Rich.
They realize that kickballers tend to drink a lot on the way to making fools of themselves (some are so hammered that they staggar around the base pads), right? Guess not.
The game is to benefit the deejays' "Christmas Wish" charity, and the modestly titled "Johnjay and Rich Care for Kids Foundation."
The Jonas boys are going to be in town for a concert at the Jobing.com Arena that night in Glendale, and are lending their gym-class heroics and a few autographs to the game, which is expected to raise thousands of dollars for each charity.
The group has offered autographs and other merchandise to be raffled off, and tickets for quick meet-and-greets with the band are being sold for $5 each.
Gates open at 12:30 p.m., and the venue can hold about 11,000 people.
Parents be warned: Punishing an older child by forcing them to take a younger sibling to the kickball game may be viewed as cruel and unusual. Just saying...
