Jimmy Fallon vs. The Daily Show in Kickball

As the world authority on the sport of kickball, we feel obligated (and excited) to report that there was a kickball game played this evening in New York City between Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Daily Show.

First things first: the uniforms. As reported on Twitter, team "Late Kick with Jimmy Fallonballs" were sporting these fine threads. The Daily Show went with more of a retro look.

Here's Jimmy Fallon scoring a run (photo by Questlove of The Roots!). And here's another shot of Jimmy Fallon playing kickball.

Wyatt Cenac from The Daily Show was there.

This guy was there too and hopefully his office is thinking about making the switch from softball to kickball now (just enter you zip code in the right side menu where it says "Play Kickball").

There were also dogs at the game.

As for the game itself, details are sketchy. But we do know that "Late Kick with Jimmy Fallonballs" were victorious, winning by a score of 7-5, behind a complete game from Keith McPhee. And Jimmy's excited about it.

[UPDATE: There's now a video clip from the game too.]

And speaking of Jimmy Fallon, we'd like to out raise Fallon and Stephen Colbert for DonorsChoose.org. If you're a WAKA player, we'd love to hear from you about starting a DonorsChoose.org Giving Page for your league.
