Look, it's simple. The futsals are loaded, the count's three futsals and two anti-futsals and the infield futsal rule is in effect.

Pretty sure it is just indoor soccer on a hard floor with a small ball.

And yeah, that goal was pretty damn ballin', although it was open net.

ah, the ol' 30 second commercial for a 29 second clip routine.  I feel used.

You are simplifying things a bit too much.

Here are the real rules.

Basically, there's three grabbers, three taggers, five twig runners, and a player at Whackbat. Center tagger lights a pine cone and chucks it over the basket and the whack-batter tries to hit the cedar stick off the cross rock. Then the twig runners dash back and forth until the pine cone burns out and the umpire calls hotbox. Finally, you count up however many score-downs it adds up to and divide that by nine.

Its soccer but actually exciting.

The only time I enjoyed playing soccer was indoor where the field was a lot smaller.

And slightly different rules, but it's basically indoor soccer, yeah.

But while this is going on, if someone grabs the "snitch" the game is automatically over and everything else is declared a waste of time.

We played 'Calvinball' in HS, which was basically volleyball in a long narrow room (normally used for batting practice). All the walls and ceiling were live and if you got hit with the ball (different from hitting the ball yourself) you were out.

I have a thing for completely stupid, randomly made up games.

Bunch of little rules, but the biggest to me is that futsal stops and throws in from the lines (like outdoor soccer), while American/Mexican indoor soccer lets you play off the walls like hockey.

The futsal ball is heavier too isn't it?

It wasn't open net.  The ball was just so far away from the net that the goal keeper was napping.

It's also known as indoor soccer and looky here, there's even a governing council in the US.

My grandpa played twig runner for Brooklyn before the juiced pine cone era.  Those were the days. It's sickening that  todays score-down numbers are so inflated and the modern day players (even the center taggers, who used to be no higher than the third assistant whackbatter on the team hierarchy scale) are being considered for the hall of fame.  And don't even get me started on the conversion to metric.

Well, that does ratchet up the ballin'ness of it, while leaving some ballin' headroom for if it had smoked past an active keeper.

I hears ya.  After the joy of ad-free internet all day it is a constant shock to jump on a mobile browser with all the stupid world enabled.  IOS is bad enough, but at least it blocks flash.  Android browsers are just a hot mess with all the ads, pop-ups and scripts.

Indoor soccer and futsal are different games. The former has boards that are in play while the latter does not.

Indoor also uses a blue card for time penalties while Futsal only uses the traditional yellow and red.

Also the former (normally) is played on some form of synthetic turf, while the latter is played on a hard court.  Which, to get back to the video, was the impressive bit.  I'd be too worried about paralyzing myself to try that on a basketball court.

Futsal's pretty popular in Chicago, where there is a huge latino population and terrible weather (and you can put up a facility with 3-4 fields for pretty cheap).  I actually played in a league a few winters ago and it's a pretty solid workout, although our team was awful. We got a LOT better as the season progressed though (we went 0-8, made the playoffs as the only qualifier is to not have to forfeit for lack of players, and then got hot and  made the league finals)

This. If this is one of the "greatest goals ever" then futsal players just aren't trying this that often.

Also, great camerawork, Lou.

Playing team hackey sack on a tennis court is fun - you play like volleyball where each side only gets 3 kicks to get it back over the net, and you have teams of 2 or 4 people - one for each main quadrant of the tennis court, or like tennis doubles. If the sack hits the ground, 1 point for the opposing team. Pretty fun!
