Just a few weeks ago I showed my kid Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story for the very first time.  He kinda dug it.  Me?  I laughed my ass off…as I normally do.  I tweeted out there should have been a Dodgeball 2 – something I’ve been saying for years.

Director Rawson Marshall Thurber and actor Justin Long liked the tweet.  That made me happy.  It made me keep the hope alive that a Dodgeball sequel could happen.

And then?  And then this happened…

Dodgeball is back!  Well…sort of.  It looks like Dodgeball’s stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Missi Pyle, Justin Long, and Christine Taylor are all back to raise money for The Stiller Foundation which helps with educating kids all over the world.

The Omaze site says: Ben Stiller wants you to grab a ball. Join Team Globo Gym—or Average Joe’s, if losing is your thing—as they face off on the dodgeball court for one final showdown. Strap on your kneepads, hike up your shorts and put on your sweatband. It’s rematch time and you’re on the squad. Goodman and the guys will train you to throw wrenches and dodge blindfolded with the best. The competition is fierce this time and you’re going to need to step it up. Get outfitted in custom-made team t-shirts and let the balls fly. After the game (aka, after the Purple Cobras dominate), you’ll take a team photo together so you can remember the time you crushed Average Joe’s once and for all. Then, you and Ben will grab some pizza to celebrate. Flights and hotel are on us.

So basically you can join Team Globo Gym or Team Average Joe’s and play dodgeball against BEN STILLER?!?!??!  How cool is that?  I’m not sure if the other stars are actually there as well or if they all just returned for the video.  Either way…it was great seeing all of them together again.

It really is a great way to raise money for charity and I finally get to see all the characters back together again…even if it is for a short video.

Basically you buy entries to win this grand prize.  So go on over to http://omaze.com/globo to learn more about this great charity and how giving can actually have you playing with or against White Goodman.  Fantastic.
