joost, your almost describing the magical gaelic sport of hurling
now that's a spectator sport if ever was one
all you describe above, plus it is THE
fastest field sport played on grass.
add the agressive, but fair, element, the "clash of the ash" as two hurleys smash together in mid air, or that special crunch
as bones are smashed, and of course, the blood and guts spilled liberally from goal post to goal past
god, it's like watching the chariot race in ben hur, but without the chariots, if you can picture that.
aaaaahhhhhh! dontcha' just love the smell of blood in the afternoon air
a provincial semi final today, can hardly wait
