Recently, people talks about all kinds of sports. For someone who is not a fan of sports, I fail to take part in those conversations. For someone who always talks a lot, I have no choice but shut up and listen to them talk, which feels suck. And when they talk about sports like soccer, there will be some professional words come up, and of course, I do not understand any of it. I do not like that. It is not realistic that I do all homework about sports and suddenly I know it all. Worst of all, my boyfriend loves soccer and won’t stop talking about it, even he knows I won’t get any of it, which makes me getting sick of soccer. For a time, I force myself to fall in love with soccer, forgive me, I fail to admire the beauty of this game. As a girl, I do not have the strength, patient or skills to play a wonderful soccer game. But I do not want my boyfriend be disappointed at me and I want him to still think me as a fun person. It gotta have another way to solve this problem.
One day, I was so bored, and I searched some fun video to amuse myself. A video popped up and caught my eyes. It was a video showing a bunch of people playing soccer with a huge bubble on the upper body with only legs sticking out. And they kept bumping against each other and could not stop laughing out loud even after being bumped on the ground and fail to get up on his feet. To be honest, that video was quite fascinating. I wondered what that kind of sport really is and I googled a lot about it. Bubble football or bubble soccer is the recreation or sport of playing football whilst encased in an inflated torus, similar to a zorb, which covers the player’s upper-body and head. The game is usually played indoors in a sports hall, or outdoors on grass. The sport is becoming increasingly popular, with many people all over the world taking it up. Bubble soccer can be played by anyone over the age of 10 and is often played amongst friends, for corporate team building days, stag parties, bachelor parties, and birthdays. There are also many variations of bubble football, with scenarios such as bubble bowling or bubble sumo also taking place at bubble soccer venues. Some venues can be rented-out, and bubble football companies exist which set up events at other locations. Bubble soccer game still counts as some kind of soccer game, right? And I instantly introduce it to my boyfriend. At first, he looked at like I was nut. But I insisted to try it out before giving it any comment it does not deserve. We invited a few friends to join our game. And it turned out pretty well, everybody was having fun. For us, it does not require some professional soccer skills to play it, mostly, we just kept bumping on each other and was laughing about it. Of course, whoever succeeded to fight against the possession of soccer was a winner. For me, I was quite enjoying the picture of a huge giant ball walking around. And the best thing is that I did not feel hurt after being bumped, since I was protected by a huge bubble ball which reduces most of the impact. And my boyfriend loves it. Now he feels great to play it once in a while for a fun change.
