My sister can't understand hockey...

Hockey is the one sport I "know".

I'm getting more into baseball, slowly but surely. I don't quite have it down yet, but I'm getting there.

I need football lessons in the worst freaking way.

Dalton, are you implying this is a gender thing?

I'll give you a brush-up on the basics of football.

Send me a message next time you're online and have some time, I'll have you up to speed on chop blocks and flat routes in no time.

No way! I'd put my mothers knowledge of sports up against just about anyone I meet.

Those are just the people that I know that don't understand those sports.

Sounds good to me!

Good thing, too, cause I have no idea in hell what those two things mean.

It's easy.

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.

Football has enough rules to make it a bit difficult to grasp entirely.

Hockey should be an easy one to comprehend, icing and offsides being the only things a 6 year old might have trouble with.

Baseball is fairly easy at its basic level, just things like the infield fly rule that might confound someone.

Sounds like a Jenna Jameson movie.

ok ..lets start with ICE HOCKEY ( i call field hockey as HOCKEY)


ICE HOCKEY..
I never saw ICE anywhere except my refrigerator or on TV until I was 25 when I went to UK.. and the only kind of hockey the channels showed were FIELD HOCKEY.

I think its very popular on this forum..I thought such sports could only be played in ICELAND, Greenland and Alaska. But obviously over the past 5 years..I understand this is very popular in USA and Canada.

BASEBALL
I mean..if you dont want your opponent to hit it..why do you pitch FULL TOSS :-).. and where are the wickets..?

AMERICAN FOOTBALL
It looks like rugby.. Even rugby ..I dont understand...but...I have watched ...a bit on TV...and sense what they are trying to achieve...but American football..I sometimes see on TV and dont understand anything..


Obviously I can go to websites and understand...and stuff..but I wonder how are these sports this popular on this forum

:-)

nothing against these sports

american football...

American football is a unique sport -- it is a game about gaining territory as much as it is about scoring points. When two teams step onto a football field, each is battling for every inch it can take from the other. Each team wants to defend the field that is behind it and invade the field in front of it. Ultimately, they want to gain enough ground to score a touchdown or field goal.

and baseball...
Quote:
Baseball is a game played with a bat, ball and glove. The fundamentals of the game involve throwing the ball, hitting the ball, and catching the ball. Of course, the execution of these three tasks is more challenging than it sounds, and it is that challenge that compels baseball players to play the game.

Unlike most games, a running clock does not limit the length of a baseball game. The two competing teams play over a period of innings, which are subdivided into halves. Professional and college games are generally nine innings long.

During the first half of each inning, the visiting team bats and attempts to score points, called runs, while the home team players take their respective defensive positions in the field. The defense's goal is to get the offensive team's players "out" in a variety of ways. After three outs are recorded, the teams switch -- the offensive team moves to defense, and the defensive team moves to offense. The batting team sends one player at a time to try and hit the ball.
