Guest Post: Wearing Mascara and Skeeball


If you are looking for something fun to do in Cleveland, look no further! Julie from Wearing Mascara is a fun, cute and sweet friend of mine who is here helping me out while I'm recuperating from a fun-packed weekend in NYC (more on that later!)  Hope you enjoy her guest post as much as I did. Be sure to check out her blog for all sorts of fun and craziness. She's also a Stella and Dot stylist so she can also help you accessorize. 

Hello, hello!

While Crystal is eating and exploring her way through New York City, I'm here to take over her corner of the Internets for the day! Muhahaha! Oh, the possibilities are endless.

First, allow myself to introduce... myself. I am Julie and I run a blog called 
Wearing Mascara. It's my place to share whatever it is that I have going on that day. It's about my life as a 20-something female navigating through Cleveland, Ohio. 

Today, I'm here to tell you about the Co-Ed Skeeball League presented by Hermes Sport and Social. I learned about it through my friends Lindsay and Justin and my boyfriend, Todd. They make up Team Awesome and every Thursday this year, they fought to the death to become the number one team in the Cleveland area!


Many Thursdays of this year were dedicated to supporting Team Awesome as they fought to win the Skeeball Championship. Winking Lizard is a tavern filled with yummy food, including excellent wings, and a huge beer selection. I used to love going there with my family when I was in high school. When I left to go to graduate school in DC, I sure did miss it! When I came back, I realized it was still thriving and continued to be one of my favorite hang outs. Oh, and they have free popcorn, which is one of my favorite parts about Winking Lizard. Seriously, I'm a popcorn addict.
Skeeball has three seasons in the Winter, Spring, and Fall. This past season, Team Awesome took home the Lakewood Championship and, as an Official Team Awesome Cheerleader, I was so proud of them! The leagues play for 7 weeks and then participate in the tournament, if they qualified. It's only $20 per person and includes playing each week, play-offs, a t-shirt, beer specials, prizes, and an all-you-can-eat buffet at the end of the season! The buffet is the best part! The food is always plentiful and they are very good about putting more food out once something is gone. It's a bar food lovers heaven!

You really get a lot for your ticket price which is not too shabby for $20! In addition to $20, you need to have quarters ready for your games. This is very important!
The Team Awesome Coach Justin means business. Just because this is a recreational league does not mean you shouldn't take skeeball seriously!
In fact, I've never seen anyone take it as seriously as Coach Justin. Let's just say, you don't want to get on his bad side. ;-) One time, I subbed for Todd because he was out of town. I didn't do too well and almost cost the team the championship! Next time, I will need practicing time for sure. For now, I'm content being a cheerleader. 
Also, this next season, Team Awesome will have a new player named David since Lindsay will be in Columbus. Will David be able to fight to the death to the par that Coach Justin sets for him? We shall see, my friends. I'll be sure to keep you updated through my blog and Twitter. 
Do you think you have what it takes to take on Team Awesome? If you are interested in forming a team, you better get on it! Registration closes on September 18! You can click here for more info. I hope you enjoyed learning about skeeball and Team Awesome! 

Hugs!
