ASHBOURNE, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 12: Rival teams the 'Up'ards and Down'ards' battle for the ball in the annual Shrove Tuesday 'no rules' football match on February 12, 2013, in Ashbourne, England. First played in the 17th Century between teams from opposite ends of the Derbyshire town, hundreds of participants aim to get a ball into one of two goals that are positioned three miles apart at either end of Ashboune. The game can last until 10 PM. If a goal is scored before 6 PM, then a new ball is 'turned up' again and a new game started. If the goal is after 6 PM then the game ends for that day and continues into the next day - known as Ash Wednesday.. (Photo by Michael Regan/Getty Images)
