So apparently Handball is not what I thought it was. I thought it was you know like you played in elementary school, a court with a wall and play against one other person. I thought it had a slightly higher level of difficulty in that it was played with a ball a couple inches in diameter versus one of those big red balls about a foot in diameter that we used in school but I figured the basic principle was the same.
Turns out it is a team sport that looks like a way more exciting version of soccer (because soccer is boring as hell except for during the 2 out of 1000 minutes that someone actually manages to score a goal). Too bad the US doesn't have a team so I could care how it turns out because I would totally watch that sport.
