an Ultimate frisbee game
I have two hands with seven fingers
2 teams, 7 players each
that should never touch the others.
Theoretically it's a non-contact sport
My first hand knows how to pull,
A pull is how a point is started (one team throwing to the other)
apply a force, it's so helpful.
Sometimes home, sometimes away,
Force is the way you defend usually on one side to force the player to throw one way. Home and away are how you decide which way as a team to force (home is the side with team benches).
This hand is always blocking the way.
Team on defense is trying to block
My other hand can use hammers,
Or knives, or blades, if it prefers.
Hammers and blades are are types of throws (not sure about knives)
These two fingers are for handling,
the other ones are for cutting.
A general team line up is typically 2 (or 3) handlers or people that are usually throwing the discs. The others are called cutters and are responsible for cutting, getting open and catching the disc (they usually try to get it back to the handlers if there is no easy way forward)
When one middle finger raises, above the others,
ultimate offense! This is the point.
If one player jumps higher and catches the disc in the endzone it is a point)
But these fingers are all brothers,
'cause at the end, they are all joint.
It's generally a very close knit community and teams will often do something together at the end, be it shake hands, spirit games (silly game at the end), etc.
