The Miscellaneous Sports Thread

For all the sports too small to get their own thread. In other words, an excuse to talk about Denmark's women handball team.

Right now La Marseillaise is playing, and soon Der er et yndigt land. It's the semis and we're going to lose!

Texas' womans volleyball team is full of a bunch of miserable chokers.  :mad:

Yes but this is college so the women's teams and the men's teams usually have the same name.  So they are also the Longhorns...so basically they are all a bunch of cows.  I guess that is better than our men's teams who are all a bunch of steers.

The only exception is if the men's team is called something like 'The Cowboys' then the women are 'The Cowgirls'.

7 - 7, both have had a good period, but the French are missing Pineau and so far survives on contra and rebounds.

So that people don't get confused with American handball/pelota vasca, I suggest that in future you refer to team handball as handebol.

I don't know what American handball is, but it seems like a good name for whatever it is.
