Okay môn is optional, but what is it for? Sports activities in general?

It's usually used for school subjects. It's hardly ever used for sports in everyday spoken Vietnamese.

This is one of the first sentences that has really confused me grammatically. I have never seen a classifier used like this with a general activity (rather than referring to a specific ball, for instance) before.

Actually, the classifier "môn" is optional in these contexts.

In that case I revise my puzzlement to apply only to those cases in which the classifier is present, such as this sentence!
