So that next time we skip school for msskl handball. It does make a big difference in life. cause its a very cool sport. and because we have the potential to win. =)
Handball (also known as team handball, European handball, or Olympic handball) is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each (six players and a goalkeeper) pass and bounce a ball to throw it into the goal of the opposing team. The team with the most goals after two periods of 30 minutes wins.
Modern handball is usually played indoors, but outdoors variants exist in the form of field handball (which was more common in the past) and beach handball. American handball is a completely different sport.
The game is quite fast and includes body contact as the defenders try to stop the attackers from approaching the goal. Contact is only allowed when the defensive player is completely in front of the offensive player, i.e. between the offensive player and the goal, this is referred to as a player sandwich. Any contact from the side or especially from behind is considered dangerous and is usually met with penalties. When a defender successfully stops an attacking player, the play is stopped and restarted by the attacking team from the spot of the infraction or on the nine meter line. Unlike in basketball where players are allowed to commit only 5 fouls in a game (6 in the NBA), handball players are allowed an unlimited number of "faults," which are considered good defense and disruptive to the attacking team's rhythm.
The guy beside is my favourite handball player. Ivano Balic. I wish to be as good as him one day.
I believe we have a similar fierce look when we take shots. That inspires me to keep pursuing my dreams to be like him.
p.s For those who hasn't seen me play handball before. Please do come as spectators after school on tuesdays and thursdays to open your eyes and be astonished. If not, games carnival is coming up soon. I'm sure you all would know what to do then =). Oh and also, watch out for the most amazing keeper in the galaxy, Goh Chin San.
Anyways, this is just another post of one of my interests. For those who likes handball. good. for those who don't. I think this is a rather boring post. Cause I already feel like it is. It's 12.30 AM now. I'm off to bed. I'll try to update more posts in the next few days. till then....
