Undying game

Lelo Burti is the Georgian traditional game that is similar to American rugby. Locals from Shukhuti village have been playing it for the last three hundred years. The village appears as a field, which is split on two sides by one invisible line; two teams consist of locals compete with each other. Before the game a priest has to bless a ball that is filled with 16 kilograms of an unconsolidated ground. There are no rules, but one aim: to bring the ball to the side of one team. Once a winner has been recognized, players will celebrate the holiday at the big wooden table where wine flows like water. After all, the ball will be put on the grave of a fellow villager who played Lelo Burti.
