    This is amazing! I’ve always wanted to try bubble football; it just looks so much fun. Cheeky little video that, but I would haved liked to have seen you go harder at it!

      It is fun, Macca. Glad you like the video. We’ll see if we can dig one out in which we go harder.

      It’s a whole lot of fun, Jessie. Guess it would work with American Football too, no?

    Now, THAT, looks like a lot of fun!
    I wonder if maybe some Premiership/La Liga players ought to be wrapped in a bubble to stop them falling over so easily?

      Well, there’s an idea, Sue. Mr GCL based his bubble-football game on the 1970 Chelsea-Leeds United FA Cup replay. He combined the physical approaches of McCreadie, Harris, and Webb to knock-down effect.

    Not sure I’d actually like this, but I did see people using them in Seville! Certainly a new way to do things!

      It’s a strange sensation, Cat. But you’re the adventurous type, aren’t you?

    Being in the United States I of course thought, how can one throw a football while encased in a bubble?! Ha! Ha! But then I quickly remembered “football” and that looks hilarious and so much fun, although I think I might get nauseous if I had to roll around in the bubble. 😉

      You run with the bubble suit on, Patti. Only if you’re tumbled over, do you roll. By the time we’d finished, however, some of us were looking queasier than others.

    That looks strange and funny, but I’m sure a lot of fun to do and I can imagine how sweaty that must be, sign me up!

    Hilarious! I can’t help but chuckle at the sight. I’d like to be in one of those full body ones where you can roll around in them. That would be fun to play against someone in although soccer wouldn’t be an option.

      Well, if you do play, please write about it. We’re sure it would make for a great post.

    Funny! It looks to be a good way for a casual game when you’ve got players of mixed abilities–I would imagine it levels things out a bit! 😉

    That looks fun! Do you play often? I saw something with bubbles and water, you get inside the bubble then you are floating – like in a big pool of water and you have to try to stay upright. Crazy!

      First time, Penny. There was no water involved. Apart from tears of laughter, that is.

    Looks weird. I mean, I would love to roll around in a bubble, but play football with it? LOL

      It does feel weird, at first. Then you become accustomed to it, Aleah.

    Football seems hard enough already. I can’t imagine playing it or any other sport in a bubble. Thanks for sharing your experience!

      We took a little time to get into our stride, Mary. But we got there in the end.
