All was good and peaceful in Liverpool, England when two police say Humpty's little brother, Jo Dumpty, snuck up behind him and pushed him off the wall. Humpty says he never heard anything around him and if he did, he would have been more aware. The police say the reason for all of this was Jo was mad he wasn't next in line for the throne.

Soccer

Soccer is a very fun and fast growing sport all around the world. Soccer was first played like it is today in the 1800’s in the United Kingdom, and it spread to the U.S. in the 1900’s. In the U.K. and many other countries, they don’t call it soccer, they call it futball.

Soccer has many different positions including forward, midfielder, defender, and goalie. The forward is mainly responsible for making the goals. The midfielder plays forward and defender and carries the ball up the field to pass it to the forwards. The defender’s are not supposed to let the ball get behind them, so the opposing team gets a shot on goal. The goal or keeper tries to keep the opposing teams kick out of the goal.

In the 1930, countries started holding a FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) World Cup every four years. It is going on today. The only time when there wasn’t one was during World War Two, when the games were suspended. In 1991, the U.S. women’s soccer team won their first FIFA World Cup.

Soccer is a great sport to play, whether you play competitively or with your friends, it is always going to be fun.

Hill Climb

Hill Climb is a very simple game. All you have to do is push on the gas or brake buttons on your phone to make the vehicle move. There are a ton of different cars you can drive for example a motorcycle, tractor, ambulance, diesel 4x4, etc. with that you can upgrade with more gas mileage, faster engine, better tires, and spin control for better flips. You have to earn coins on your ride by completing flips, how much air time you get, or just coins along the road to upgrade your car or buy a new car. There is also a lot of crazy different roads such as the country, the moon, boot camp, etc. The point of the game is to get farther on the road every time, if you do, you get more coins and it gets harder. I love this game because it is a fun game that doesn’t require much thinking.
