As Abraham Lincoln once said, "My dream is of a place and a time where America will play volleyball on an inflatable court with badass trampolines and let you kick the ball whenever you feel like it."

Well, Papa Stovepipe Hat, turns out neckbeard-ed dreams come true, too, 'cause that thing you described during the Volleysburg Address TOTALLY EXISTS and it's called Bossaball:

Invented by a Belgian dude living in Spain, Bossaball pits two teams of four against one another in what's essentially Volleyball PLUS -- you get a max of five touches to return a ball, and you get points for grounding the ball on the opponents side (it has to stop moving) or by a fault by your opponent.

But there are three major scoring additions here:

1) You get 3 points when the ball is played directly into the opponents trampoline area

2) You get 3 points when the ball is soccer kicked into the opponents regular playing area

3) You get 5 points when the ball is soccer kicked directly into the opponents trampoline area

So where can you play?

You can find Bossaball leagues all over the globe, you can buy your own Bossaball setup for $20K+, or you can rent one for a little more than a grand.
