Float flipping wasn’t the only new sport introduced to our family’s swimming pool last Sunday. Say hello to pool football!
It starts with one boy out of the water tossing a football high in the air to two awaiting opponents. The object?
Grab the football first. This, of course, involves a lot of jumping and bumping. Boys gotta be boys.
But eventually someone is victorious. After each round (usually a best-of-five catches), the thrower rotates in, and another game starts.
There were plenty of thrills and spills during the lively contests. Sometimes you never knew who was going to end up with the ball.
Plus it wasn’t enough just to get your hands on the slippery object. The guys had to make sure to show they hit the water with the football still in hand.
