Among the choices of team-building sports, dodgeball is a curious selection. Inevitably, one team is stacked with players with a certain gleam in their eye and a hunger for inflicting the sting of defeat. That ball is headed straight for the most vulnerable areas, and when it arrives with an audible sting, there go any feelings of grandeur. All that's left is to tuck tail and slink off the court. Yet grown people continue to play a game that may have lasting effects on their self-worth. The game doesn't have a lot of room for mercy. Luckily a variety of competitive levels exist on the Boise circuit.
