Is This Soccer, Too?
A young player sent me this picture of a Saami woman playing with a raindeer skin ball. Every July, in Lovozero, a little town in the Northwest Russian Federation, the Saami people have a festival to celebrate their ancient roots with this kind of soccer.

I suppose they played this sport long before we pretended to invent soccer a century ago.
