"considered by some to be the Turkish national game." It's apparently ridiculously slippery and crazy! I can see how it would probably be pretty entertaining. They have about 700 contestants each year. This week's winner was Mehmet Yeşilyeşil. He won the 648th championship of Kirkpinar. It's cool that they have such a long-standing tradition to continue, but I'm glad that my country has less-weird sports that dominate the national spotlight. Oil wrestling is just weird.
Ya know, it just doesn't seem like it's run-onto-the-field exciting.
