   All football games are played by trying to get a point by running, throwing,  and touching the ground with the  ball trying to get away from big, bulky  armored people, right? Well, not exactly. There is Unicycle Football. Unicycle  Football isn’t just random football, it is football played on a unicycle!

    Unicycle football is game of football on a unicycle. So, that mean if you are good a unicycles, you can play, yes? No! Here’s why: Players fall off their unicycle a lot! In this game, the field is decided by the amount of players. Once it is decided, here comes the first action of the game, “Football Joust!” It is played by using a “boxing glove on a stick.” Then, the players will start the game! The players can tackle other players by pushing them off their unicycle, or pulling off their flags.

    There is also a league for it, which is based on San Marcos, Texas, and currently consists of nine teams. The league now is in the ninth season. The UFL has almost been around for a decade. Seems like America needs more unicycle sports, other than unicycle hockey and this. People pedaling around on hybrid blade wheels? That’s perfect!
