Win Tickets to The Hangover
Almost all WAKA players have been there.  Had a little too much after a kickball game, woke up a little foggy – only to find out you did something silly or dumb.

But we doubt anything you've done under the influence comes close to what befalls the three main characters in "The Hangover."  When three friends wake up following a wild Vegas bachelor party, they find a trail of hazy memories and destruction that includes a live tiger, knocked out teeth, a random baby, a missing groom and more.

WAKA has seen you at your worst (some might argue best), so now we want you to be able to laugh at someone else for a change – with free tickets to see “The Hangover!”

All you have to do is visit, find the “Hangover” note and post (in a sentence or two) your worst hangover story.

The author of the best story will win a FREE ticket voucher for two to see “The Hangover” – and will also have their story featured in an upcoming issue of Kickball Today.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, June 3.
