Teams set world record in 31-hour dodgeball match

After playing continuously for more than 31 hours, two Albany, New York dodgeball teams called it quits Tuesday afternoon as the proud and tired owners of a new Guinness Book world record.

"It's been ridiculous. Every hour is a new challenge, new celebration," Rob Immel said.

Rob Immel and Jason VonGuinness each run a local dodgeball league. Together they came up with an idea which would make them and their teammates dodgeball deities.

As for doing something like this again, that's one question they won't dodge.

"There are some teams in Baltimore that already said, 'Whatever you set, we're going to break it.' There are teams out in California that said the same things. Good luck, you could have it. I'm done," Immel said with a smile.

Players say they're looking forward to a little sleep, a lot of ice and are not even thinking about playing another game for at least a few days.
