Do you ever find yourself wondering about how certain sports came into being?

I mean, when you think about it, it's not hard to see how something like soccer came about. It seems pretty instinctive to just want to kick something - people often just kick a rock or whatever is in their path when walking down the street.

Makes sense, right?

But who the heck thinks "I know, I'll stretch my arms out awkwardly in front of me and whack at a ball like a moron"?

I don't care what you say, volleyball is wrong.

"I know, rather than just throwing the ball over the net, I'll do an awkward throw-and-punch move thats going to bounce into the net/roof/my team members more often than not..."

Yeah I find that funny sometimes to think of world sports in the same way; like sumo wrestling, two really big guys fighting

Turkish oil wrestling...i'll leave that one alone.

The story of tennis is a little odd, it started off as a indoor sport with angled walls that you could bounce the ball off.
