Pictures Of The Day

CRAPGANISTAN.  Horses and riders play buzkashi during a competition as part of Navruz festivities near Dushanbe, Tajikistan.  Buzkashi is an ancient game played on horseback that is similar to equine rugby.  Biggest difference is that instead of a ball they use a goat carcass.  Nice, Buzkashi, NICE!

SAFETY FIRST?  A helicopter hovers as Australian V8 (the engine, not the vegetable drink) Supercar champion Craig Lowndes takes a practice lap in another dude’s car in an “exchange event” at the Mount Panorama Circuit in Australia.  At the conclusion of the event everyone when surfing with sharks.  (Photo by Vue Images/EPA)
