The pigskin season is right around the corner and so is flu season, but I won’t get into that right now; and all football lovers, aka TV-yelling-addicts, are gearing up to joyfully celebrate or mournfully wail after each game. While emotional investment of watching 32 teams bash themselves to win a piece of jewelry is lost on many, it is has every bit of entertainment value for others.
Beijing’s local pigskin scene is a fun way to make new friends, get fit, and play America’s game with the Local Legend Football games.
The only catch is that this is flag football, which means no hard hitting tackles can be expected, or so one would hope anyway. These games are tailored for dads and moms, for they don’t have a kids games, and are, therefore, a nice way to get out of the house for a couple of hours and run around like your child(ren).
The preseason game kicks off on September 3 at 1pm, at the Ditan Sports Complex. Young and old, women and men are welcomed to take part in the gridiron when the regular season begins on September 10 with the men’s games taking place from 1-3pm and coed from 3-5pm.
