Malpractice Bowl

November 2, 2009 —

Lawyers may be good with words and winning arguments but they get their butts kicked in FOOTBALL!!!

Each fall the students from DMU play a flag football game against Drake Law students. They call this the Malpractice Bowl because that’s one thing we have in common with the law students.

As medical professionals, we run the risk of being accused of it (though we’d surely never commit it!) and they make money suing us for it.

So, in fun and games, we have an intense annual battle of flag football to gain bragging rights for the year. This year’s event was on Saturday.

Well folks, the DMU women’s team can brag away because we stomped those law students all over the field. Not gonna lie, it felt good to kick some butt and have fun while doing it.

The field we played on was a muddy mess and at the end of the game some of the girls decided to run and slide in it as you can tell from the pictures. It was a great way to start off Halloween.

Daley Dodd was born and raised in the little ol’ town of Newton, IA. Growing up involved sports, dance, clubs and anything under the sun that could keep the family busy. This busy bee life flowed over into her college years at Northwest Missouri State University. She was a member of the Northwest Dance team, taught dance at a local studio, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority and involved in Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC). After college Daley journeyed on over to Europe and had the time of her life. While there she worked for CCC and got to experience new cultures, foods and people. After a year abroad her cravings for American food got the best of her and she came home. After living in Nebraska a year she decided to jump back on the school ship and came to DMU. She has loved her experience here so far and can’t wait for everything to come.
