    Those things they use for the ball work like little rail guns!!

    That game was big up in Rhode Island when I used to live there.

    There used to be an ancient Aztec game where the winning team was sacrificed. Seems like it would take some of the competition out of it, but they played harder :lol:

    That game originated from the Olmecs and spread all across Central America. I would have loved to see it actually played. *Pondering* I wonder if it is still played...minus sacrifice.

    In any case, I don't think that game was meant for oranges to be hurled at people's asses.

    Never knew the game's name, only saw it in Miami Vice and Tron.

    WTF?! I was expecting some videos from an extreme fighting-style like Vale-Tudo or such and I find this...
    This is a variety of "Pelota Vasca" (Basque Ball, you could say), a sport originated and played in some northern regions of Spain, and I think the almighty Steve-O got absolutely punk'd this time... the fastest, and more dangerous sport than bullfighting? My ass! LOL oh man, i can't stop laughing...
    :worship: :worship:

    the toughest sport is extreme shredding. We play so fast that lighting comes out of our guitars and we shoot it at each other.

    We are very underground, but let me put it this way. We make micheal angelo look like mick thomson (slipknot)!!!
