here's a good example of it --
slew-footing is one of the most dangerous infractions in hockey. It occurs when a player takes out an opponent's legs
out from under them, usually from behind, causing them to fall violently to the ice, risking injury to the back or head
as they fall backward.
One of the features of being an awkward player playing pond hockey
with a bunch of other spazzes is that you get to experience all sorts
of fouls, most of them unintentional, but nonetheless painful. I recall
being slew-footed -- I didn't know it was called that either -- and going
down hard on my hands and tailbone. Not fun.
