Flag football jocks open new season

The National Flag Football League of Atlanta returned to the grassy, if a little soggy, athletic fields at Piedmont Park on Saturday for the start of their spring and summer season.

imageThe gay sports league was ousted from Piedmont last season when park officials closed its athletic fields during a long-running drought. But the ban softened in time for the league to play its fall season in Piedmont last September.

Week No. 2 for the flag football league shifts to Benteen Park in South Atlanta on Saturday before returning to Piedmont for games on April 25.

The NFFLA season stretches into July before the league assembles a travel team and heads to Gay Bowl IX, set for early October in Washington, D.C.
