New sports created from random emoji

This cartoon popped up in my blog feed the other day, and I immediately thought it would make a fun addition to any sports lesson. You could show the students some of the emoticon combinations and ask them to match them to the names, then come up with the rules for this particular sport, especially if they’re not feeling very creative and are unable to come up with their own sport (the classic activity!)

What else could you do with this cartoon in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)
