There about a million things I'd rather do along a river bank than run.

You guys actually use armored vehicles for your strikeball games?

The military has plenty of surplus BTRs (armored personnel carriers), and other armored vehicles, like Ural trucks, and they give them to strikeball groups: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBzRSWyv7zw

The strikeballers get an enhanced experience, and the military supports it, because it keeps men constantly ready for a war, as an informal military reserve, of sorts. Back in the USSR, the Red Army had to hold special war games for reservists, to maintain their training. Today, we have the private sector and strikeball for that

Funny thing is, it is very popular in Ukraine too. Teams from both countries have visited each others ranges and played against each other in friendly "battles", very often. Would be a funny turn of life, if the men from both sides would now have to face each other in real combat...
