The Thrill of Victory…the Agony of Deficits

Congress may be dropping the budget ball, but CRFB doesn’t intend to – literally. We will be participating in the 2nd Annual Budgetball on the Mall tomorrow.

Budgetball was created to get Americans to combine physical and fiscal fitness. It is a fun and unique way to get people thinking about the debt and fiscal responsibility. It is fun to play and watch – what other sport has players running around with life preservers, oven mitts and funky hats? Check out http://www.budgetball.org/crfb/ for more on the sport and the event.

The sport has been spreading on college campuses across the country. Tomorrow college teams will face off against the “Washington establishment” in a tournament on the National Mall in DC. CRFB will field a team in the pursuit of glory…or at least to help spread the message.

There will also be entertainment and a “Fiscal Fitness Area“ with interactive exhibits, including CRFB’s new “Stabilize the Debt” budget simulator. So come on out, have some fun, and cheer on the CRFB Budget Hawks.
