There are a few sports that make up 99% of what we watch every day — like football, basketball, and baseball — but have you ever thought about the 1% of sports that will never be seen live on TV? Some are regional games that just arenâ€™t that popular outside of that area, but others are just plain ridiculous. Have a look at some of the weirdest sports that youâ€™ve never heard of.
Hurling is the fastest field sport youâ€™ve never heard of. It was invented in Ireland over 3,000 years ago, and has been played in some form ever since.
A field-based combination of soccer, basketball, and football, players must use a stick (hurley) to get a ball (sliotar) in between the opposing teamâ€™s goal posts. More points are given if the ball goes under a goalie-guarded crossbar. Although hurling is traditionally played only by men, there is an equivalent sport for women called camogie.
