Historic Football (The non-American kind)

So there is this game that they play all over the world called, “Football”, which in America is called, “Soccer”, for whatever dumb reason. In Florence, Italy however, they play a game called “Calcio Fiorentino” or just “Calcio”.

Here is how it goes for those who are wondering. It is played on a sand field with four teams. Each team is represented by the four corners of the city. The object is simple, get a ball in a net by any means possible. Any. Means. Possible. Imagine Calcio as the child of Football, American Football, Rugby and MMA fighting.

I shall show you.
