The Air Force sends its young Lieutenants to a six-week-long course at Maxwell AFB called Air and Space Basic Course. Six weeks of ridiculousness born of easy coursework, 400+ people your age and all the alcohol you can find. It really is a great little break from standard AF shenanigans. Part of that course is the game of Icarus. I won’t bother you with details, but the school has a tournament and a championship for every class that rolls through there. I caught this picture of my buddy Sean Haydo hurtling his opponent’s ball during the final Icarus tournament.
