Weird sports

Recently, Qatar hosted the quadrennial Asian Games. These games, alien to most Americans including, until recently, me, feature some of the weirdest games on the planet. Here are the picks of the litter:

Kabaddi--a cross between tag and the hold-your-breath game popular in many gradeschools.
Sepaktakraw--a cross between soccer and volleyball.
Soft Tennis--for those afraid of the normal tennis ball.
Wushu--a type of martial arts dance routine.

I don't know where the next Asian Games will be held. I would love to go see them. I hear they are going to add Tether Ball.
