Has anyone else seen this yet? It's like basketball with a smaller ball. You can only take two or three steps without dribbling or passing. But instead of a basket, there's a goal and a goalkeeper like in soccer. There's an arc around the goal area that looks similar to the 3 point line in basketball, but apparently only the goalie can play the ball inside the arc. Everybody else has to be outside. It's pretty weird, but entertaining.

I use to play this in grade school all the time. It's pretty fun to be honest with you. I haven't had the chance to watch it during the Olympics this year. But if I do have a chance to watch it, then I'll defenitely do, because it's very entertaining to watch. I'm glad it's in the Olympics because it deserves to be there.

No I haven't seen that one yet. I keep missing it. Anyone have a site link to see events that have already happened? I looked on MSN but couldn't find anything.

Link me if you have one please.

Handball is very big in here. I hope they get a medal. They successfully beat Croatia (one of the good teams) last Thursday in their preliminary round.

When I watch handball games, I think of basketball and hockey. :lol:

If anyone gets a chance to see the Women's Handball semis game between Norway and Korea...go see it. Great game. :nod:

Speaking of which, our Men's team will meet Croatia for the semis tomorrow. This is crucial for Croatia because they're last Olympics' gold winner and they want to defend their title.
