Default 'Speed' Creativity

Have you ever seen the movie "Speed" with Keanu Reeves? Do you remember the popular question from that movie?

"What do you do?"

I want to know how creative you are? I teach in Japan and sometimes I struggle to keep sharp my creativity because, in my experience, my work environment sucks the creativity from my brain. I think as teachers, if our creativity dies, we've got one foot in the "teacher's grave". So, I want to create a scenario for you to test how creative you are. This test is for teaching an ES lesson.

The ES topic: SPORTS

Here's the criteria: You can't use flashcards but anything in the average classroom (chalkboard, desks, chairs, etc) is at your disposal.

How would you introduce, teach and practice this particular lesson? What do you do?
