I would watch the Olympics if it had buzkashi. It’s like polo, except instead of a ball, it has a goat carcass. And all the players have whips which they can use on each other without breaking any rules. It’s the national sport of Afghanistan, and it’s so insane that it sounds like a myth made up by rednecks to portray them as savages. But it’s very real.
Oh, and in the Chinese variation they ride yaks.
