Random Asian-ness: Sepak Takraw or Pele-ball



Holy cow! I had no idea what I would see here, but no way could I have envisioned such a game. The hand-eye coordination, speed, and acrobatics are amazing. Should definitely be an Olympic event (IMHO and LMAO). As for toughest sport? - hardly, but maybe the toughest coordination.

It's obvious that like most men, you enjoy sports!

I really don't like them that much, but a good game of basketball can be almost like a choreographed dance. That I enjoy. :)

There's gotta be knee injuries a plenty though! :(
