Headshot of 2/25/2013
Sine there have been some concerns if the Headshots Count page is still working, I decided to put up the most recent headshot from the last dodgeball meeting. It was a cross-court throw that was delivered by none other than me, Mario "Mario Mario" Romanelli. The throw was intended to break up a cluster of people on the far side of the court. But just as the ball was about to hit Peter "Hazard" Gawron, Pierce "RAVE" McBride stepped up and was smacked with the ball directly in the face. Everyone on the sideline saw the blast and it was heard throughout the court. As I approach RAVE for the customary hug, he emitted that he did not see the ball and that he did stepped into the throw. A simply mistake that happens to best of us dodgeballers.
Headshots of 4/30/2012-5/10/2012
Because of the sever lack of motivation of it being midterms week, I have not been able to do the proper job of documenting all of the headshots until this VERY MOMENTS RIGHT MEOW. There for, I can't seem to remember the proper dates which the headshots happened, but I still will go through recognizing all of the headshots, starting with the ear blaster which Troy "Big Dix" Dixon sent to myself, Brian "Bvan" Van Meter. The head shot was one which caused my ear to ring for about 10 minutes and was a wondrous hit! According to everyone it was one of the most glorious sounds ever heard around the world, but since I was rendered temporarily deaf, I had the displeasure of not being able to hear it! Shananagins I say! Next of course, was a headshot that happened that VERY same night! A vicious throw sent from the hands of Matt "Howitzer" Schroeder, to one DePaul University's very own basket ball players from our fantabulous basketball team. I guess that the man wasn't able to handle so many balls coming at him all at once... Because this was one that decided to plant itself on the left side of his FACE! Shout out to the bad ass throw from Howitzer. Lastly, but not least(ly), our very own Rachel "Caliente" Joyce landed a disgustingly good shot to the man with those luscious locks, Brian Weinert. Although it wasn't the hardest headshot ever thrown, it was definitely on the top of the hilarity meter as it floated over and planted itself of Weinerts noggen. Of course after all of these headshots were the customary headshot hug rule!
You'll see how the box is messed up for Howitzer's picture, blame Ziggy its probably his fault. Note: Ed - I fixed this
It was once again another fatabulous night for dodgeball. Although we weren't on our traditional court, court 4, much hilarity still ensued for such an amazing sport and game of DODGEBALL. This night though, once again, that mystical ball ended up jousting a player right in the noggin! Carrying out a hilarity of yells from everyone on the court as the victim laid on the ground laughing. Who was this victim and who was the headhunter you may ask? None other than Anthony "Netzel's Pretzels" Netzel received this blow, and the sniper Alex "Mittens" Watkins. The headshot was an was one which drifted silently through the air, seeking out its target of Netzel's face. Netzel, who was in the middle of a powerful spin throw, took the 8.5 inch rubber ball of DOOM straight to the eye as he released his ball of destruction. Of course, the spectacular dodgeball hug rule took over right after such an amazing hit.Headshot of 4/26/2012
Head Shot of 4/19/2012
They say that the best offense is a good defense. Unfortunately, this was not so for our club president McJesus. Using the a blue mat that is put up to keep balls from going to other courts, McJesus brought a defensive wall onto the court. Unfortunately, this mat could not block balls coming from all angles, such as the head hunting ball which Anthony Netzel launched 1st class, destination, Mick's head. The ball connected, and Mick dropped along with his defensive wall of evil and tyranny, and the day was won. The customary headshot hug rule came into effect as Netzel gave Mick the hug TO END ALL HUGS.
Head Shot of 3/29/2012
This particular headshot was done by one of our more esteemed and veteran members, Champ Hill, to one of the bright new faces that has just began showing up which this author has no idea who the victim's name is. Champ through a wicked zinger crossing through the air at a screaming rate, smacking an unsuspecting victim across the face. Additionally, in Champ's own words in a comment down below, "the power has been brought." A man who will walk the talk and talk the walk, or something like that. Unfortunately, I did not see the headshot so I can't say much more than that, other than the complete uproar of everyone on the court after it happened. Then of course, there was the customary headshot hug.
2nd Head Shot of 3/26/2012
Luke "Knucklepuck" Mockaitis is the type of player who charges up through a hail of dodgeballs, magically dodges them all (about 1/2 of the time), and then tends to once again use his black magic to levitate up sideways and launch a wicked fast ball through the air at his opponents. Unfortunately for one Matthew Schroeder, also known as Howitzer, Luke's aim happened to be located right in the facial region of Howitzer's head. When asked about the headshot Luke had very little to say, the way he described it was quite simply as a "cross court shot that flew past three people straight to Howitzer's face, never saw it coming." A shot worthy of recognition which is for sure the fact. Howitzer could not be reached for an interview about it, but after the customary headshot hug he seemed still in good spirits and laughing about the event which unfolded.
1st Head Shot of 3/26/2012
It was the first night of dodgeball for the 2012 spring quarter, and also an outstanding turn out of players and dodgeball alumni, a headshot was almost demanded to happen by the end of the night. The victim was the freshmen Samuel Murphy, a man whose beard is much like his playing style: rugged, manly, and hairy. The one who let loose the infamous rubber ball of dismay and destruction was none other than the writer himself, me, Brian Van Meter. I was recorded saying in an interview of myself, "The moment I knew it was going to be a good hit was when I heard the ball snapping out of my hand, which is one of my favorite sounds at dodgeball", said myself with a smile, "I saw Sam stepping out to release a cross court shot and I knew that was the moment to release the ball." With the release, the ball jettisoned from Brian's hand with a inevitable collision point of Sam's head. Continuing on Sam states "I didn't see it coming at all. I just turned my face, and there it was." The impact was one that produced a piercing and sharp FWOMP, and rendering the notable yells of excitement from all those on the court that night. The shot struck Sam in the left side of his face in the eye and also knocking his hat off, which with poetic justice was actually Brian's hat. After the headshot though, Sam stated feeling an emotion of pride, "... I was proud. Proud that it had been Brian who had headshotted me and not someone like Spacebitch." After the headshot was of course the joint hug of the headhunter and victim, as is the great custom of DePaul Dodgeball.
Head Shot of 3/12/2012:
There is close to no better of a time to land a finishing blow of a head shot than at the final official day of dodgeball for a quarter. Especially when said headshot is done by none other than the current club president himself. Mick "MickJesus" Cielesz sent out a nasty headhunter of a ball tonight with the target of none other than Mario "Mario Mario" Romanelli, a member of the rival OWO faction. The full connection of an 8.5 inch rubber dodgeball hitting the flesh of Mario's face echoed throughout court 4, fallowed almost immediately with the "ooo's" and "aahh's" of an entertain and surprised dodgeball club. However Mario, who had taken the blow, did also make an intrepid catch mere seconds before receiving the hit. "The headshot felt like a blast of rubber hitting the face," proclaimed Mario Mario later that night after the headshot, "I didnt even realize a ball was thrown until after I was hit..." To his own defense Mario Mario also claimed "To best summarize the action, I took one for the team", and that the catch he made was "a catch at eye-level." Fallowed briefly after the hit, was a hug between the two fellow dodgeballers as is custom at DePaul Dodgeball.
