It's getting ugly.

They whip and punch each other for control of the goat, sometimes passing it to teammates,
I REALLY miss college.

Is it just me, or does "controlling the goat" sound kinda wrong?

The game started 2,00-3,000 years ago? Sounds a lot like the NBA season.

I can't see sports commentators saying 'And now for the latest scores in kok-boru' with a straight face...

Kyrgyz?

Yes, Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel...

Somehow that makes football look like a very sweet loving game.

[play-by-play announcer] "Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-at!"

ps: best line in story: Then there’s the whole goat carcass issue.

*Wonders how they managed to play this game 2,000 to 3,000 years ago with World War II helmets for protection.*

Nike is completing its research on the design of a syn-goat. All that's left is where to put the swoosh.

"There can be no kok-boru without camaraderie."

I agree. Any time my wife and I aren't feeling a sense of camaraderie, I find that my chances of getting a little kok-boru are basically nil.

hehe...they said kok

chswz: Nizhny Orok sounds like exactly the kind of place Nike would put a factory.

As if it weren't ugly enough already... Ewwwwwww.....

Some say its cruel - cutting up a goat to play with.

Now you tell me. I guess I will go back to my original idea for a gift for my 8-year old. A meat cleavar and a dead rat.

Gimmee a K!
Gimmee an O!
Gimmee a K!

Gimmee a KOK!

YEA!!!!!

Most kok-boru players are shielded from their competitors’ whips and fists ... Just what kind of protection are we talkin bout here, and is it latex?

"There can be no kok-boru without camaraderie."

Have truer words ever been spoken?

*Lets tear roll down cheek*

Whips and fists? Who gets to wear the leather and the garter belt and the spiked heels? Just askin'

Did someone mention leather and spiked heels???

Waitaminnit! What?

*Warns Dave*

*Waves* at Hammie AND Meanie!!

Say something?? ;-)

pssssst...Meanie? stop warning Dave...we're not gonna hurt him much.

Second-best line: '...the only thing holding them back is the Party heads.' Headless goat, body-less Party types, just plain weird!

Siouxie,
Could you please post the rest of the image from Beverly Heels? Pretty please?

I think kok- boru would be very popular in this country, right up there with WWF, monster trucks crushing cars, Howard Stern and other mindless activities. Besides, if playing with pigskin is THE national sport, can goat skin be too far behind?

Sorry, Dylan ...you only get to see my foot! ;-)

Ahh Siouxie,

What if I give you big puppy dog eyes? Worked for AWBH...

Ohhh ok, Dylan...HERE!


Yeoozie, thanks so much...

Uh, were you shopping for shoes or the eye candy at the bottom of the page?

Welcome, Dylan ;-)

both.

Whoa, what 'worked for AWBH'? And why is Siouxie posting pix of ME?

Kok boru is related to polo, which was originally played after a battle(thousands of years ago) using the head of the losing general. Really.

"Exactly what are the values spread by a sport where the ball is a gutted goatpig carcass with its head removed and legs cut off at the knees, skinned, cut to shape, tanned and laced up one side?"

it would fit right in...

AWBH,
"What works... " are big puppy eyes getting blogettes to post great pictures of, uh, heels and the like. That way I don't have to do it myself. At least, I think it was you who kindly did me the favor last time. Maybe it was NT. Sigh. So many blogettes, so little time...
