Any big HURLING fans here?
I’m getting a free preview of some station through Dish Network right now that seem to show hurling about 24 hours a day.
Take a couple steps and whack a ball 100 yards?
What REALLY amazes me is that I’ve managed to make it to age 35 with no awareness of this sport. I’m aware of HOCKEY and CURLING, but not HURLING!
Cricket. Yup. Australian Rules Football. Check.
I’m even aware of that Afghani game where they move a goat carcass around.
I can identify caber toss, for cripes sake. I’ve even seen a match where some indigenous people throw a spear at a coconut that is perched atop a pole.
But, I can state, pretty equivocably, that I have never seen a clip of hurling before.
How small is this sport? What kind of people play it/follow it?
