Q: The Chicago Vendetta, Virginia Rampage, Minnesota Blur and New York Epic are all teams that compete professionally in the national league for what sport? Matches in this sport begin with “The Rush” and are generally contested by teams of six… but contrary to popular belief, Patches O’Houlihan has never returned from retirement to coach a team from his wheelchair.A: Dodgeball. Teams like the Epic and the defending-champion Vendetta compete in the National Dodgeball League, an 18-team league formed in 2004. None of the NDL’s matches are currently televised, but that is likely because ESPN 8 – “The Ocho” – doesn’t exist.
