    Looks like Hockey without ice and often (?) without skates, but frequently between canadians and americans...

    There's a very well-organised ball-hockey league (basically street hockey, but on a rink) run by the Canadian Forces troops out in Kandahar. Friend of mine just came back from a year there, playing on the civilian team (he says they got their butts kicked regularly, even by the Logistics guys... but they did manage to beat the Signals troops a couple times). The level of play is apparently very good, the games are fast-paced, and it's a great workout.

    The league usually includes approx. 10 teams, 2 of them American. (size changes depending on who's posted where at a given time). The French Canadian combat engineers of the "Van Doos" (22nd) were apparently annihilating all comers when Andrew hopped a plane home a couple weeks ago.

    I bet it gets cold enough in Tora Bora for ice hockey and I'm sure you have lakes or ponds up there where you could play ice hockey for maybe a few weeks of the year.

    Is there any ice rink in Kabul??
