    yellow cones and nets

    Does "yellow cones" refer to those traffic A-shaped cones?

    --------------------
    Enough guilt! I bolt from the Hunger Memorial and head east on Warren Street, where I confront an enormous, Seurat-like tableau. Scores of girls and boys in multi-colored shorts and shirts chase balls on an enormous emerald field punctuated by blue and white stripes, yellow cones and nets. Men in business suits yell, "Run! Run! Pass! Shoot! Good!"

    Yes, and I would guess it's talking about some kind of community intramural soccer tournament for kids.
