Day 7 - Part 1 - Hand of God.

An ode to question of sport.

Not sure if they do this round anymore (im sure they do). Pixelated moment from history. Even N knew what it was.

The founding fathers of Handball were German physical education experts, who gained recognition for field Handball as a separate sport at the turn of the century, based on the games of Raffbal(snatch ball) and Koningsbergball. In 1917, a German called Max Haiser and drew up the first set of rules for field Handball. In 1919, Berlin sports teacher Karl Schelenz launched this form of Handball, played on full-size outdoor pitch. Later on he improved the rules. In 1938 the first field Handball WC was also played in Germany.
