According to the Internet, bubble football is an inflated huge ball which allows people to get inside the ball and to wear it bumping into others. The bubble covers the upper body and head with only legs sticking out for running. And I assume that the design is for lowering the possibility of danger while bumping and increasing and creating the new definition of fun. Unlike regular football, hitting other players is not only allowed, but also encouraged, for the bumping is the foundation and crucial part of bubble football fun.When I introduced bubble football to my boyfriend who is always skeptical, he found it hard to believe that that kind of sport would bring any fun at all. But for the sake of his girlfriend, well, he had to try it. The bubble football is not very heavy, but pretty easy to carry. After a few minutes, the bubble is fully inflated. Following the online instruction, it was quite easy to get ready and have a “fight” with my boyfriend. No doubt, I aggressively made the first move and bumped into his bubble. Well, people who had played bubble football could imagine what really happened. I was bounced back and rolled around for a few minutes, since my boyfriend is pretty strong even though he was not ready for my attack. But he just staggered a few after being bumped. When he saw I was being bounced back and rolling, he just could not stop laughing at me. I felt humiliated and attacked again. Well, you could imagine what happened next…

That day, my boyfriend was crazy about both football and bubble football, for they are not the same thing and possesses different definition of fun. And we figure more people playing brings more fun. It’s time to get a team for it. According to my experience, bubble football is very new and interesting sport. It would be total waste if people don’t get to know it.
