Games We Play
Field hockey is sadistic. They make them use those short sticks so the players have to be bending down for the entire game. I bet it was invented by chiropractors.
Water Polo just looks harder n hell too.
 I like these penalty corner plays. They are like a scene out of "Braveheart." The rest of the game looks tedious. And within minutes of turning it on Germany smashed a ball from about 40 yards out and it went in the goal. But it didn't count b/c it was not within the scoring circle. Lame.
 Exactly. Awesome sport. Grueling, punishing, unforgiving.
 True, those corner things are cool -- better idea than soccer p-kicks.
