Playing pool like soccer on larger-than-life scale

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Let’s take you on a trip to one part of the world where people play pool on a larger-than-life scale – and making a ball in the pocket with your foot is the norm. The video’s gotten more than 13.9 million views already. What’s interesting here is that this looks like a game of soccer fused with croquet; billiards actually “evolved from a lawn game similar to croquet played sometime during the 15th century in Northern Europe, probably in France.”

The key here: don’t make the eight ball or fall off the table! provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
