Hacky Sack, The Sport


Growing up I partook in my fair share of hacky sack circles. I was never the guy to carry the sack around, but would join in on a circle every now and then. Anyways, I never thought the sport would evolve into anything that required much more than some foot eye coordination, but it has, and these guys have some serious skills. If bicycle kicks are the most exciting play in soccer, then with a bicycle kick happening every point (or every other kick) this sport is more exciting than soccer! This sport is called Sepak Takraw originated in Malaysia, and is played with pretty much the same rules as volleyball (in scoring and touches per side of the net).
