I really like this sport! It's fun. Who agrees?
Heh heh...that's why I'm no good at it, but definitely fun. It would be so cool sometime to get all the PF geeks together for a game...at least then we wouldn't have to worry about the jocks hogging the ball.neurocomp2003 said:too fun but too fast.
:rofl: I thought dogdeball and soccer were creative enough as a combination...didn't realize you were adding an obstacle course to it too. I never even thought of soccer inside a house!TheStatutoryApe said:Oh wait... did you mean on a court in a gym? I thought you meant in the house.
Yeah, there was that too. Actually, it was more like, "Take it outside, NOW!"Hurkyl said:You're probably just obeying your mother...
"Don't even think about kicking that ball around inside the house, young lady!"

You're surely alone sometimes, what they don't know...Astronuc said::rofl:
I am not allowed to play inside the house. :rofl:
Yeah, learning to avoid furniture can help one develop nimbleness. :rofl:shmoe said:The skills you learn playing against your furniture directly translate to skills on the big pitch
Don't you guys have a real indoor field (basically, a hockey rink with astro turf). We have a couple.shmoe said:Indoor is fun but it's mostly a substitute for when outdoor isn't an option, usually the period when the ground is frozen. Though the group I play with typically manages at least 1 or 2 snow and ice games each year.
The gym I play in has some nice corners and random obstacles that can make some interesting angles when you get to know your way around.

There are many options nearby, ranging from outdoor size fields (including sidelines but with fake turf) inside converted airport hangers, to hockey rink style, to leagues in high school gyms around the city, to the university gym I can get a group of other students together and book. This list is in roughly descending order of cost, starting at very expensive and ending at free (well, included in tuition). Not a tough decision to go with the small but free gym playing with friendsBobG said:Don't you guys have a real indoor field (basically, a hockey rink with astro turf). We have a couple.
Not too many towns with a former bomber factory.BobG said:Best I ever played on was on Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, NE. They have the best fitness center I've ever seen. It's an old World War II hangar left over from when there was a Martin bomber factory there - the hangar must be about a quarter mile long.
