As it turns out, this stuff isn't that easy. That might explain why there are so few players and so many spectators. Last week we got a chance to walk the field, make some passes, catch some balls, and kick some field goals. With no technique or practice, and a couple glasses of wine in them, the success rate for most people from 10-15 yards out was pretty low. The ball would end up a few feet off the ground, to one side or the other, or shanking off into the pass throwing activity's area.
Personally, I never missed a kick. Some people might bring up the fact that I didn't attempt a kick and regurgitate that motivational "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take" stuff. My stance is that given my near complete lack of athletic ability, my miss rate would be about 100% anyway, so why bother? At least now I get to say that I never missed and then quickly change the subject.
I did have fun watching other people attempt some kicks.
