18 Apr – "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball," said the character Patches O'Houlihan from the 2004 movie, "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story".
In case you haven't heard, earlier today Malaysia had almost won at the finals of the World Championship of Dodgeball held at Manchester, England against – well, England!
Malaysia lost to the host nation at 3 against 14.
This may seem like a terrible lost, but to get there, the Malaysian team had beaten other strong teams from Wales, Egypt, USA and Scotland before facing England, where the latter had the privilege of competing at their home ground.
Who knew that Malaysia could actually be quite good at the sport, right? It's like they really dodged a lot of 'huge wrenches' to get to this level!

To be honest, nobody really payed much notice to dodgeball until Hollywood churned out that 2004 hit starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Justin Long, Rip Torn and more.
So how does one play dodgeball? Easy, according to the movie all you need to know are the five D's.
But wait, to make things a lot easier, watch this instructional video from "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story", and you'll get it just fine.
