Water Hurling

Same rules as Hurling, except...
 
(0)
  [vote for,
against]

6 inches/15 cm of water cover the playing surface.
The ball has flotation qualities.

Hurling was brought to Ireland as the last Ice Age was receding. With that in mind, this sport uses water to represent the thaw.

       <Cagney>Listen, see, this isn't a discus - fmmm - it's a discussion, see - and if you have too much Guinness - fmmm - you'll be doing a different kind of hurling, see</Cagney>
IVnick8or and anybody else who's missed out on this great sport, Check ESPN or FoxSports for listings - If you see Gaelic Games listed - you're in for a treat. These players can be running at an angle which doesn't look conducive to a shot - with opposition in hot pursuit - and hit the ball smackdab down the middle through the goal. None of that wussie stuff you're likely used to seeing.

       Sounds a little like ice hockey after someone left the Zamboni on "high".
