Announcing the winners of the 2008 Dodgeball World Championship.
What an incredible dodgeball weekend. Forget the Olympics, Las Vegas was the place to be on 8/8/08 as dodgeball teams from around North America came to compete. Teams showed up from around the country and Canada. We saw teams from Florida, Alaska, Arizona, California, Oregon, and Massachusetts, just to mention a few.
