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

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?
