[livejournal.com profile] elibalin: Goat grabbing!
[livejournal.com profile] syringavulgaris: This appears to be what, a millenium ago, they did and called "polo".
[livejournal.com profile] elibalin: If I remember correctly, it's called "Buzkazhi" in one of the places it's practiced.
[livejournal.com profile] syringavulgaris: "A mounted version of the game has also been played in the United States. In the 1940s young men in the Cleveland area of Ohio played a game they called Kav Kaz. The men - five to a team - played on horseback with a sheepskin-covered ball. The Greater Cleveland area had six or seven teams."
[livejournal.com profile] syringavulgaris: WTF.
[livejournal.com profile] elibalin: What else was there to do in Cleveland in the '40s?
[livejournal.com profile] syringavulgaris: Drink beer. We had many breweries.
[livejournal.com profile] elibalin: And what do people do after drinking lots of beer? They throw goat carcasses around.
