Do312 Celebrity Kickball 2012

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

It was a controversial game this year! Teams fought over who the real winners were and will be reviewing the tape for bragging rights! It was a close game though, whether it was a tie or really was 7-6 I can’t say. What I can say is it was a great game!

This was Do312′s 3rd year running their Celebrity Kickball game at Lolla. The line-up was amazing! Many celebrity kickballer’s came back to dual over this year’s trophy from Fender made from a real guitar. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Har Mar Superstar and Greg Corner of Kill Hannah came back for a 3 peat. A couple of my favorite newbie’s who came out to play were Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Kaylee Defer from Gossip Girl.

Guy was hilarious on the field. Dying to make his way home he yelled “We’re green, we’re mean! Some of us are lean….” It was awesome. He even took over one of the JBTV’s cameras to get a live perspective of the game. He carried it while up at bat and ran around getting shots of the crowd.

This year was the first time fest goers could actually watch the game. It was great to see Lolla fans talk and take pictures with the celebrities. Aaron Paul got to sign an old (not that old) High School year book for a fellow classmate.

do312 celebrity kickball game

For the past 2 years the Celebrity Kickball game at Lollapalooza has been quite entertaining.  Most observers that arrived at Lolla early on Saturday ran into the game in full kick-ass mode.  Some walked right past as the likes of Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) and Aaron Paul (Prison Break) showed the crowd their kickball skills, or maybe lack of. This year Aaron Paul is back and will be joined by Chris Holmes, Greg Corner, Har Mar Superstar, Ryan Paradise, Dave Ziebarth, Kaylee from Gossip Girl and more!

So where do you find the kickball game? The game starts at 11:15 a.m. and last year it took place in front of the North side stage, which would be The Red Bull Soundstage this year.

FYI this year the game is presented by Groupon and Fender donated a trophy for the winning team!
