Peter Baxter's sociological sports documentary Wild in the Streets details the annual Shrovetide Football game played in the English city of Ashbourne. The game has been played for centuries and involves using the entire town as the playing field. Two goals are set up three miles apart from each other, and teams score every time they can get the ball into those areas. However, there are strict rules about how the ball can be transported.
