For ball games we need ball, field and oponent. For team sport we need team-mates. For motor sport we need car or motorbike or something that have engine (motor). For each sport we need different equipment. But for each sport we need enthusiasm and fair-play.
My favorite sport is football. It is very nice game. It is team sport. I like to play it and I like to watch it.
Why people do sports? It is good for health. We have better physical condition, we can work better and we feel better. It is not problem for us to go upstairs. Sport is relaxation. It is nice watch or do some sport. You forget on your problems and you work your stress off.
People who wachting sport are passive sportmen. Now we can watch on television all sport from the whole world. It is common football broadcast or we can watch ice-hockey championship. We stay at home and see all matches and the best players on the world
Football is ball game. It is playing by two team. Each team has ten outfield players and one keeper. They have dresses with one colour, different as opponent. They play on the grass field or pitch with size – 105m x 55m. Football has two half after fourty-five minutes. Players try to score in the opponent target. They don`t want get a goal.

Then in the U.S.A., in Europe in Russia, Slovakia, Czech republick, Nordic country. Woman like ice-hockey more than football, because is more dynamic and there is more actions.
Money and sport. If you want to do sport professional, you have to have a money. Now in sport are money very important. Sportmen need the best equipment, the best stadiums. Sportmen earn „big money“. The best of best earn a few milions of pounds. People think that it is very much. But people, who employ them, earn much more money. In the sport are very much money. It is fact.
My favorite sportman is Thierry Henry. He is one of the best footbalers in the world. He plays for Arsenal London, english team. He was the best scorer in last season. He is Frenchman, he was born in Paris in August 17, 1977. He is striker, captain, with number fourteen on his back. I like to watch on his play. His play is amazing. He scores fantastic goal. Thierry is very quick, has big acceleration. He has sence of fair-play and team work.
