More Commonwealth Games fun

Imagine a game that resembles basketball, but:

1. Has no dribbling
2. Has no backboard
3. Has a goalkeeper
4. Allows absolutely no contact
5. Oh, and the women who play the sport must wear unflattering dresses ....

Then you'd have netball, one of the four team sports contested at this year's Commonwealth Games.

if the Special Olympics was open for nations to compete in, it'd be called the Commonwealth Games

I tried once to make a basket in the backboardless insanity... I was no good... no good at all...

Those uniforms look like the gym uniforms we were required to wear when I was in high school. They are no more attractive now then they were then.

What? You're not a girl, but your gym teacher made you wear a dress? That's messed up!

I was watching Ballykiss Angel the other day and they were playing some sort of weird game with a net and throwing a ball around. It must have been netball! I'd never heard of it.
