Video: Americans try to play hurling for the first time

Fair play to them.

If I was ever asked to play ice hockey then my first steps out onto the rink would probably result in me slipping on the ice.

Sadly the same thing would also happen if a camera was filming me play American Football, although this time I'd get smacked in the head by the ball.

Clearly I'm going to stick to what I know best, 5-a-side, but fair play to these American video bloggers who tried their hand at some hurling fundamentals.

They won't be playing Semple Stadium anytime soon but at least they provided us a new term to describe our beloved sport, 'Irish baseball' anyone?

Take a look.
