Members of the Pistol Shrimps lined up in a V-formation. Aubrey Plaza is in front, holding a basketball.

You’ll laugh! You’ll keep laughing! You’ll want to go join a rec league! The Pistol Shrimps is equal parts hysterically funny and legit inspirational. A group of women with decidedly unathletic day jobs (lawyer, model, musician, being Aubrey Plaza, Drunk History) got together to form a rec league in LA with basketball credentials that included having once attended an REM concert, and it’s grown into a 26-team league populated with passable but serious ballers, half-time dancers, glorious nicknames, a play-by-play podcast, and sock commentary.
