Did you know "kick the can" and "capture the flag" are the same thing?

While watching HBO's Togetherness the other night, I came to a startling realization.

In the episode the show's characters played a game of "kick the can."  I've never taken part in that activity before, or as far as I know ever seen anyone else actually play it.  It's one of those games you hear legends of that I assumed only existed during the Great Depression, or before the ball was invented.

But now that I've seen "kick the can" in action on TV, I can say with a fair degree of certainty that it is 95 percent identical to "capture the flag."  Who knew?
