Football Match
« on: March 15, 2003, 07:07:10 PM »

Ok, for those you who don't know anything about

muggle football the first thing we need is postions. There are 11 players on each team. I tend to like the 4, 3, 3 formation.

4 Forwards - the

offensive playes, usually in the opposing teams side of the field trying to score.

3 Midfielders - the workhorses of the team, they support both

the offense and defense, usally they help get the ball downfield to the forwards.

3 Fullbacks - the defensive players, their job is to keep the

opposing team's forwards from getting close enought to the goal to score

Keeper - the last line of defense in football, much the same as a

Keeper in Quidditch, only he has one goal to defend instead of three, but it's a much bigger goal. He's also the only one who can use his hands to touch

the ball.

Obviously if you don't have enough players for a full 11 player team, you can just get back...just keep the ratios even, or you could

get rid of the forwards and have the midfielders play more offense.

Anyway, I usually play center fullback, so I'll take that position on one

team.

Key rule:  you cannot touch the ball

with your hands or arms unless you are the keeper!  AND NO MAGIC!!  Everyone who's is going to play will need to check in their wands before

getting on the field.  Also, you probably want to forego the robes for shorts and t-shirts.  

I spent 11 years as keeper and/or fullback, so will be

glad to take either/both of those positions again.  I've also played midfield (halfback, where I grew up) and could do that, too, though since I've been living

in the magical world completely, my lungs and legs aren't what they used to be.

Whoo! I love football! I play keeper

mostly, but I play a bit of everything. How are we going to divide the teams up?

I enjoy playing keeper in quidditch, but would also not mind running around a lot, which I'm told midfielders do.

With the number of active people around, you

can play both, Ping.

I'm signing up for permission to sit on the sidelines and laugh at everyone. It's like...negative cheerleading, you know? I

just don't have the figure for positive cheerleading ;)

Muggle games?  This

should be interesting.  I generally play Chaser in Quidditch, so I'm guessing I might want to be a forward?

If we can't touch the ball with our

hands, how do we move it around?  How do we get it in the goal?  *smiles at the gigantic rectangular goal*

*smacks forehead*

Of

course!  Well, you can use any other part of your body other than hands and arms, but generally, you use your feet and legs.  It's really quite quaint:  

kicking a ball with your feet and letting it roll on the ground.  Kick some more, roll, kick some more, roll.  The secret is to try to maintain control of

the ball, so you don't want to kick it so far away that you have to run to catch up with it.

Hm...  That's going to

take a new kind of coordination.  I'm much better with my hands.  Hopefully... no that won't help.  I'm a mediocre dancer at best.

Well, I'll

give it a shot, but I don't promise to be any good.  :)

Perhaps we should start with some practice

Did you put that in there Tia? This is supposed

to be a muggle game. No magic! ...Now maybe we should work on some skills. *pulls out a ball that hasn't been tampered with and begins juggling (for

those who don't know, juggling in football is attempting to keep the ball from touching the ground by propelling it upward with the foot, knee, chest, or

Ping watches in utter fascination. Then she

tries it herself, but the ball keeps going off in odd directions. "Are you SURE that ball hasn't been tampered with?"

It takes a bit to get used to

juggling. And considering Tia is around I'm not all that sure the ball hasn't been tampered with...it will probably explode on you in 5

seconds.

*Cho watches as a look of fear flashes

over Ping's face*

Now, Verk, don't tease our Minister of Magic.  She's overworked.

*pats Ping on the head*

He's just

playing with you, Minister.  The ball hasn't been tampered with, see?

*holds ball out to Ping, who is about to grab it when, suddenly, the ball

begins to shake and jerk on its own in the air.  Ping and Cho both pull back immediately and back away slowly as the possessed soccer ball rises

further and further into the air*

"He's not a ghost,

he's a poltergeist.  ... What is the difference, anyway?"  

After watching Verk with amazement and something like disappointment, Mad

seems a bit glad as she watches the ball float out of sight.

"Quidditch anyone?" she asks hopefully.

What's so dangerous about a floating ball? I'm just

annoyed that the explosion didn't work...

Ah, was that my out loud voice?

Well, well look at the time. *holds out her pocket

I can't believe I'm going to have to explain

this. You must be in Gryffindor. *grins* You give the stick to the check in. You keep the wand.

*winks at Shelly* But keep trying that

stick. You never know.

high pitched humming noise*

"Weeeell," said Cho still

eyeing the ball cautiously, "I'm just worried that that thing is going to blow up the first time anyone tries to kick it or, even worse, the first time

I try to kick it!  So here, Tia," said Cho, shoving Tia toward the ball, "you first."
