Looking for a sport that lets you wear cool cammo clothes, hide in the woods and shoot gobs of paint at your friends? Then you should be playing paintball. What could be more fun than running through the trees with a paintball gun trying to hit someone?

Paintball - Easy and Safe

Paintball is an easy and safe sport that can be played between teams with one, two, five or even a thousand players per side. There are several different paintball games to play but the most common paintball game is "capture the flag". The object of the game is to go out and capture the other team's flag while protecting your own. Paintball fields have lots of obstacles like forts, tires or even old cars set up for players to hide behind to make the game even more challenging. It's like being part of a real-life video game!

Paintball - Guns and Ammo

While you are trying to capture a flag in paintball, you also try to eliminate players on the other team by tagging them with a paintball fired from a special paintball gun. These paintball guns are powered by CO2 or compressed air and fire small pellets of paint. Getting hit may leave you with a bit of a welt - but it doesn't usually hurt too much. he paint washes off with soap and water so don't worry about having a permanent "scar" from playing. A great way to introduce yourself to paintball without committing to expensive equipment is to start off by checking out the selection of guns. Games usually run from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of players and the size of the paintball field the game is played on.

Paintball - Safety Gear

The most important thing to remember when playing paintball is to always protect your eyes and face with proper paintball gear. Players must always wear special safety equipment including goggles and a facemask. You may also wear gloves, paintball armor and camouflage clothing so you can stay hidden in the trees and bushes.

Paintball - Course and Markers

You should only play paintball games on a proper course that has markers and a referee. It can be extremely dangerous to fire a paintball gun inside your house, at school or at the mall. So if you buy any paintball gear, only use the gear when you're playing a properly monitored game - or else you or someone else are very likely to get hurt. If you wear all the proper gear and equipment and follow all the rules - paintball is a really safe and fun sport. But if you're a big wimp who's afraid of a little paint, you can always stick to laser tag or playing checkers with your grandma.

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
