Underwater Hockey and Rugby!

My friend Bonbon (a well-regarded neurologist, pseudonym still in progress) lives in a house full of boys.  Her older son is an excellent hockey player, so Bonbon sent me a link to this fabulous piece on underwater hockey from CNN.  The video is kind of amazing.  Apparently, it's very popular in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and it's starting to catch on in the US.  I may need a little more time in the gym before I try this, but it looks really fun. 

So it got me thinking, what about water rugby?  Someone beat me to it.  Bless YouTube.  I found this really entertaining video of a "water rugby" match, although it actually looks a little more like water basketball or soccer.  I'll let the experts weigh in. 

Why stop there?  How about water tennis?  Leave it to the Brits to come up with scuba tennis.

The possibilities are endless.  

Have a good weekend!
