    Info about your favorite/favourite sport. It can be something obvious, even soccer .

    OK here is mine.

    Fencing. (please don't think this is about fences)

    Fencing is a type of sport where you must a touch with the top of your Sword/Epée, Sabre and Foil. The tools/weapons are not ACTUAL swords, they're made of aluminium.
    You need masks. Also a bunch of uniforms.
    A match is called a Bout, you must salute first.
    There is 3 different types of Fencing. Sabre, Foil and Epée.
    Epée is the most common one, where you can target any part of the body.
    Sabre is the where you can only target from waist and up.
    Foil is basically Epée and Sabre, but the shield on the sword is a bit smaller and the weapon is lighter.

    Now, you can posts yours down below.

    I get to school by bike every day.
    Since that is about 20 km a day, it keeps fit pretty well.
    Also you are awake in the morning.
    Rain, ice and cold weather doesn't matter, got clothes for all that.

    Archery. You take your Bow+Arrows, try to hit the bulls-eye of the target and don't accidentally hit your friends.

    And don't destroy your precious arrows.

    There a two options to score. You either You place/hit the ball really good so that your opponent can't reach it or your opponent makes a mistake (well duh).
    You play with a tennis racket on a 1vs1 or 2vs2.
    To win, you must win 2 out of 3 matches, but sometimes you have to win 3 out of 5. If the game gets to the last match, the point counting goes a little different.. read more in wikipedia if you want to know it.
    A match is won if you won 6 sets with at least 2 set gap bewteen you and your opponent. If it's 5/6, you get into the 7th set, played normally like every other ser before. But if it's 6/6, it'll get a little bit special. Read more on wikipedia.
    In a set, the points are called the following: 0=0, 1=15, 2=30, 3=45 and 4=either won or advantage for the player in lead. That only happens if both player have 45, usually called deuce.
    After each set, the play switch sides and the serve. On which side you beginn and who has the serve at the beginning is littleon luck. You mostly do a little gambling game, and the winner either chooses a side or who has serve. The loser decides what's left.
    Now I could also tell you something about the field, because it's articulated in different small fields, but y'know, why explaining when there's wikipedia?
    As you can see, I already explained the MOST important things (am I missing something here what is also important?) and don't want to get too much into details. As I said, if you're interessted, go to wikipedia or whatever and read there more
    A personal request of myself: If you find any grammatical errors here or even in this sentence (also misspelled words etc.), please say so. I really want to improve my english futher

    Football, Why you may ask?
    Welp... even tho i'm THE WORST at football, I find it hilarious to play it.
    every time i play football i'm always defending.
    so... imagine this:
    Me ( a guy that barely even runs every day ) plays football and tries to defend, Ya that doesn't go well.
    So... the hilarious and funny things that happen are when i miss the ball when i try to shoot it away from the goal... AND MISS WHILE NO ONE IS AROUND ME :D

    Or for example this one time i was the goal keeper (and i'm the worst goal keeper ever to exist), Suddenly and surprisingly catch the ball in my hand after someone actually shoots it too hard.
    I Panicked so hard that I actually (somehow) turned my face to the goal and scored on my own goal :D :D :D :D
    You can imagine my teammates facepalming so hard.

    One time i was the goal keeper, and i saw the ball coming at me from a distance (like... 5 meters or something), so i was like "Ah, i'm just going to shoot it as hard as i can when it comes down to the other side of the playground".
    Guess what happened? EXACTLY!!!
    I FRICKEN MISSED!!! And the other team scored a goal xDDDDDD
    I mistimed my shooting time, which was too early.

    What's even cringier(if that's even a word) is when i fuk up so hard in a match, and afterwards I tell my friends (sarcastically) that i'm the BEST defender/goal keeper EVER!!!

    I even find it hilarious when my teammates do something unexpected and turns out so funny.

    like that one time, one of my teammates shot the ball soooo hard and in the wrong direction, so it hit the edge of the wall right next to someone and then a complete 90 degree turn into his face xD

    So.. imagine this happens every week i play football, it's just full of stupid funny moments like these.

    Still there is something i don't understand, i was never accepted to be one of the players who are chosen to play in the school's championship, Hmmmm i wonder why?
