Via the Daily Illuminator, which describes it as " a cross between polo and a street fight, with a headless goat instead of a ball", the Afghan sport of Buzkashi. I see a great need[Wiki] for helmet-cams of this sport, if helmets were part of the standard equipment for spectators...

Helmetcams for the players, the spectators or the hapless goat?

Given the description (spectators intermingle fairly freely with the playing field), and that the players are way up high on horseback, I thought the best view would definitely be helmetcams for the spectators.

(Dang, edited that last word from "players"...)

It should also be noted that this is a spectator sport distinctly different from "bukkake" (I'd link that to something, but I'm at work...).
