Aqua Ball

This past weekend all of my brothers and sisters (there are eight of us) were in town. The kids descended on the pool and came up with a game on Saturday that one of the parents ended up naming "Aqua Ball". It combines aspects of football, rugby, water polo and bullying. They were initially wearing innertube-like swim toys which tended to interfere so my brother-in-law, Chip, picked up head bands and water wings so the kids could have "uniforms."

On Sunday it was game on. We started with team photos.

The older kids formed the Dora the Explorer team.

Spongebob Squarepants mascoted the younger team.
Are you sensing the imbalance and unfairness yet?

A fearsome pass rush is about to happen.

Swim! Swim!

The play is over when your opponent is drowned.
