To Buzkashi, Or Not To...

On Danny Butcher's internet radio show tonight, I mentioned the national Afghan sport buzkashi, but now I'm not sure if that was the best idea, because (1) virtually no one understood what I said and (2) they might be disgusted if they research the sport.

I'm considering a brief piece on the sport to educate people on this unique portion of Afghan culture, however, I'm not sure folks will respond to it well.

Which is why I'm leaving it up to you the reader: should I, or shouldn't write about the sport to teach Pundit Press a little more about Afghanistan's culture?

P.S. - The sport is seen being played in Rambo 3, which was based on the Afghan fight against Soviet invaders.
