Soccer

My favorite recreational activity is soccer. I play soccer a lot and have been playing for five or six seasons. in a game not long ago I made a hat trick , or three goals in one game. We placed second in our league this year.

Their are lots of rules in soccer and they are all very important. If you donít follow them you will pay the consequences. Iíll tell you about them in this paper.

Probably the most important rule is that you canít touch the ball with your hands. If you do you will be penalized by the other team getting an indirect kick or a direct kick. The only time it will be a direct kick because of a hand ball will be when the hand ball is in the goalie box.


Another rule of soccer is that you canít hit the other players or curse at them. If you do hit another player you will either get a yellow card or a red card depending on the severeness of the hit and if was an accident or not. A yellow card is a caution and a red card puts you out of the game.

Soccer is played al over the country and all over the world. It is a sport that is in the summer Olympics. The games will be held in Atlanta this year and teams from all over the world will be playing there. Hopefully we will get tickets to one of the games because I really want to see one.

Soccer is a very fun sport and is very good for me. I love it and will always play it. You should try it you have not already tried it.

Bicycling

Riding my bike is my favorite recreational activity. I have a haro race group 1zI. I ride every day and often ride to school. Their are many tipes of bikes for sale these days. My freinds all ride too. Sometimes we go all over town just for fun.

There are many kinds of tricks you can do on bikes. Some of them are very difficult and others are very hard and take a while to learn. I can only do a few simple ones.

One of the tricks is called an indo. This one I can do and quite well. Itís really pretty simple all you have to do is get going pretty slow and hit the front brakes. When you do this you back tire comes off the ground and goes up in the air. Some people that get really good can make the bike turn around.

Another trick is called a bunny hop. Most any one can do this trick. All you do is pull up your front tire and then push it down fast enough so that back tire is off the ground. For it to be a bunny hop both tires must be off the ground.

Probably the easiest trick of all is popping a wheelie. To perform this trick you must simply pull up your front tire. Some people can ride wheelies. This where you pull up your front tire and hold it up for a long time.

There are other tricks that are much harder like doing a flip or bunny hopping over a trash can. I can not do these tricks. Only professionals can perform these hard tricks.

I love riding my bike.

Agriculture

Although greatly reduced as a source of employment, agriculture has undergone a major transformation. Georgia agriculture is modern and mechanized, and the former strong economic dependence upon cotton has been replaced with a diversified agricultural economy based upon the production of soybeans, corn, peanuts, tobacco, poultry, cattle, and horticultural and orchard crops. Much of Georgia\'s crop production is concentrated on the Inner Coastal Plain.

The Piedmont, once an established farming region, is now characterized by farmers who operate small part-time cattle farms but who earn most of their income from employment in towns and cities. These farmers sell, buy, and trade cattle for a living.
Forest, Georgia\'s most common landscape component, covers about 65% of the state; forest area has increased by more than 10,000 sq km (3,860 sq mi) since the 1930s. Complexes of longleaf and slash pines cover most of the Coastal Plain, and loblolly and shortleaf pines forest the Piedmont. A forest
