Biblical battles, with monkey bars

While at the park last weekend, “among the kids playing soccer and flying kites and climbing monkey bars,” Christopher Monks happened upon a throng of “hairy men in dresses pretending to slay each other” with swords. He reports:

Initially I was thrown off because all the actors and extras looked like Johnny Damon. I was like, “Hey Johnnys! What you doin’ here? Game is in Seattle!”

“Shh. We’re in a Bible battle,” one of them answered back. “And my name isn’t Johnny; it’s Ezrakiah.”

Look for Monks’ playground and Ezrakiah in an upcoming History Channel documentary about Biblical wars.
