How are sports born? As My Edition Columnist Kento Matsui wrote this month in his column about soccer, the sport began in 19th century England, but there are records of soccer-like games dating back to ancient Rome and China.
Playing sports can be fun, but making up your own sport could be just as fun. Why not try it? Send us a description of your pretend sport, how it’s played and what its rules are. You can even include a picture of you playing your sport with your friends.
One winner will be chosen to receive a $25 gift card from this month’s My Edition sponsor, National Running Center.
