Here is a little more about the sport. The object of the game, is to get control of the carcass and bring it to the scoring area. Initially this sounds extremely weird, but than I started thinking about the term, "pigskin". Perhaps someday Buzkashi will make it mainstream and they'll play with a synthetic carcass.

I hate Hehe, Buzkashi translated means goat grabbing. THanks for the supplemental links 86 and yerfatma, the first one doesn't work.
