Handball

Quote

Sorry to open a new thread but it's because I am so gutted right now Frown Just watch the semifinals Germany v. France (World Championships). Germany won, of course. The referees were Swedish I guess and they were clearly on Germany's side. It's so not cool. I mean, one of the German players (Roggisch) made like A LOT of mistakes and was not punished. French players were punished for things they didn't do and what gets on my nerves the most is what follows: they played two prolongations (2 times 5 minutes and another 2 times 5 minutes). In the 15 last seconds of the 4th prolongation, one of the French players scored a point (he was absolutely not offside) and the point was refused for a reason no one understood. The referees were so not fairplay... That really makes me feel miserable for the French players. They really deserved to win Frown Frown Frown

That was a wonderful match to watch though yes and really, congrats on the German team. They played really well too. The referees should have been a little more neutral imo... but that's sports Smile

The final score was 32-31 btw  cmon yeah

Instead of kicking the ball with your feet you throw it with your hands and it's played indoors. That's all I know about it.

I could probably get into handball, but in the States, we care less about handball than about Ping Pong... lol

Awww, thanks guys  hug

Ha ha, I thought it was popular in a lot of countries lol In France, it's quite huge, though they never show it on TV. My brother has been playing handball for about 6 or 7 years and his team is really good! I played it a few times at school (and even got hurt by a guy who threw the ball too hard Rolling Eyes). I really enjoy watching it. Probably even more than footie!!  yay

Well, anyway, I'm still very sad about the match Frown

It's a sport we only hear about every 4 years when the Olympics comes around. I remember watching the finals at the last Olympics not knowing anything about the game, awesome matches. Especially the women's final which if I remember correctly went to a penalty shootout.
Sorry France lost Mo.
