Soccer Mayhem

For our ward's combined Family Home Evening activity the other night, we played soccer with this HUGE inflatable soccer ball. It's actually pretty heavy. I tried to be cool and do a head shot once and got an insta-headache.

This could have possibly been the funniest thing I've ever seen. I could never catch it on film, but people (even the big guys in our ward) were getting knocked flat on the ground. If someone in front of you kicks that ball, you've got nowhere to go but onto your back. While I was playing, in about a one minute time frame, about 3-4 people had huge collisions with the ball and ate it hard. Susannah was one of them. It was too much for me to take. I was laughing so hard, I almost didn't make it to the bathroom in time. I had to run out of the gym to the restroom. I tried to get some of the soccer mayhem with my camera after that, but had no real luck. I have several videos, but I chose this one, because at the end, Blake does a great accidental air kick - a swing and a miss. Great FHE!

Very fun activity! I remember playing this at BYU and ended up kicking the ball right and a girl on the defending team tried to block it with her nose. Blood everywhere. I've sworn off any sport with extremely large gear since.
