AOL, Google Slammed In Dodgeball Tournament

    April 10, 2006

The First Annual World Wide Web Invitational Dodgeball Tournament was held over the weekened at Chelsea Piers, and MSN trounced competitors from Google and AOL, as well as The Happy Corp, and

Out of the 13 teams fielded five of them were AOL-employee teams, and all five lost in the first round! Google also got slammed, and the final wound up being the two MSN teams against each other.

AOL got to walk away with some sort of honor: According to Sree Kotay, all the losers had a mini-tournament, and an AOL team beat Google and went on to win the “losers bracket”. Insert AOL joke at your leisure.

Anyway, it sounds like a really great event. Next time they hold something like this in New York (rare that anything cool and tech-related happens in this city), somebody tell me so I have a chance to be there!
