Flaming soccer ball fun, now on video

We mentioned it and published a pic the other day, but now you can watch a whole video about this new extreme sport. I wonder which team gets disqualified if the ball rolls under a car’s gas tank and a whole city block explodes into flame.

View the video here.

    This sport came with a marching band when I saw it in New York: http://vimeo.com/34964272

      Funny a 3 piece marching band showed up on the corner of 22nd and Bryant just around the time when the fireball went under the car. It almost seemed staged…

        Another funny side note was when a firetruck randomly happened upon all of this (probably on the way home from putting out a real fire) and quietly drove around the 40+ fireball kickers, bystanders, and directly over the fireball itself before simply taking off.

    Yeah, this is called “Pyroball”, we used to play it on Ocean Beach.

    When Cyclecide toured through Tuscon, the fine people who gave us beer called it Redneck Soccer. The foot warming activity does wonders in removing stray weeds from abandoned lots.

    Yep. Flaming Redneck Soccer is what they called it.

    Hipsters playing with fire… maybe that’s why there’ve been so many house fires in the area lately.
