Reader: After you ban alcohol from Wash Park, please ban volleyball -- and overweight people

washington.park.205x205.jpg
Our post about Denver City Councilman Chris Nevitt's suggested booze ban at Washington Park (which only allows 3.2 percent alcohol as it is) didn't receive a lot of popular support in our comments section. But there was some easy-to-detect sarcasm, as seen in this memorable post.

Oh gawd yeah, please ban volleyball while you're at it. And overweight people too! Oh, I don't like the lollygagging looks I get from students at South High School either, can we ban them too, please?

The city did that in Northglenn and now it's not fun to picnic there anymore. There has been no problems with alcohol and the park. Absurd and insane restrictions for no reason at all.

Ban that stupid bitch that said cigarettes. Pretentious asshat. Last I checked smoking was legal...how about we ban illegal immigrants from the park instead.

This has nothing to do with Washington Park, but if I had a magic wand I would wish Westword out of business, and that their amateur hour, bush league story/blog/facebook story writers learn how to write articles of substance, and that are actually thought prevailing in a good way, instead of the devisive shit they usually come up with.

Or you could let it be a park, and not ban anything. Its a public space, respect others, clean up after yourself and do whatever the fuck you want, even volleyball.

Goose poop.........but add more trees especially around the pond with the boat house. I was actually disappointed in Wash Park when I moved here especially after all the hype. I think it needs some sprucing up.

Why don't we ban "gawd" and "lollygagging" as well? Who taught this depression-era frat boy to tweet?
