i guess this took place a few years ago, but it's entertaining as hell to watch. A dog ran down on the field and decided to get in on the action. They didn't even stop the game... they just let the dog run around on the field while the game was still going.

full video here.

Get that Jack a jersey!

What a great video. The camera follows the ball around and like clockwork, that little Jack comes sprinting into frame chasing the ball around. He's having a blast too.

I think that team has a new mascot.

I have always thought that game is hilarious. Its like me and my brothers used to play soccer with the neighborhood kids. At some point it became a hybrid of 'smear the queer' (dont get all PC on that one, its all in good fun and you all played it too), football, and soccer.

I love watching these random gaelic sports vs other sports games. Each year theres a game between the scottish shintly team and the irish hurling team playing a mixture of the two sports. Seems to be the same here

Smear the queer was awesome! Nobody calls it that now. Damn you PC police!

Aussie Rules Football a lot different, no timeouts constant action. Plus those funny guys in the hats that make the hand motion straight out after a point is scored

That looked like a combination of so many different games, I wouldn't know how to begin to explain the rules to someone.

AWESOME!!


That game is a combination of Gaelic Football and Australian Rules Football, ... pretty much just an excuse for Australia and Ireland to have an "International Game". ;)

I was going to post this. They made a sport out of nightmare soccer? Soccer and basketball always had a form of football in it once two things happened; first, the noon duty supervisor went around the corner and two, one kid didnt want to play by the "rules" anymore and if he didnt want to, then nobody wanted to do it and then it became nightmare basketball/soccer. Soccer was what we didnt know already existed...RUGBY.

Thanks! I was trying to figure out what it was. I'm a huge footy (Aussie rules) fan, but this had noticeable differences. Mainly the soccer goal and the rectangular field. THis makes so much sense.
