How about a nice friendly game of flag football? I know. You’re thinking, “I haven’t played flag football since Phys. Ed. in 6th grade. That sounds like a blast!” In order to get more people to participate, we are changing tradition a little bit for our 12th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Bowl. We would normally play tackle, but since we are all really old now, we decided to save our next hospital visit for another day.

FAQ: Where is The Field of Dreams? The Field of Dreams is the Mizzou football practice field located east of University Hall and north of the Women’s Soccer field. You can see the goalposts from Stadium Blvd. as you drive east from Providence to Carrie Francke Drive (the street you turn south on to go to the golf course). You will want to park in the lot surrounding University Hall on Carrie Francke Drive. See map here. Who can play? Anyone who wants to have fun can play. Remember it’s a friendly game of flag football. If you do not want to play, you are certainly welcome to participate in any of the other festivities associated with the MLK Bowl Festival. We are also looking for some photographers/video camera operators to document the fun. What do we use for flags in this flag football game? Tube socks.
What should I bring besides a light colored jersey, a dark colored jersey, cleats and a mouthpiece (optional)? Some suggestions: Water or sport beverage; a camera for team/action photos; a towel; cones or pylons for field markings; 2 old tube socks for flags.
Who do I contact if I have questions? You may contact the operator of this blog via email, or if you have it, dial my cellie. Hope to see you there!
