The Nobel Prize in Floorball?



No no no, that is just too crazy.

Yes, but if we look on this from another angle. Mr. Alfred Nobel created the Nobel prize to both give back to science and art but also to in a way to create his own legacy.
He did that rather good.

Since there were no Prize available for Music the ABBA producer Mr. Andersson created his own, today rather prominent Polar Music Prize.
A Russian Billionaire just started to reward his own Physic's Prize - with way more money as the Nobel Committee does. Then there is the Oscar awards that cover alot in the Movie and TV industry...

If we now take this to sports - is there a "Nobel or Global Prize" for Sports?
Not at least a one big enough to make a good media impact. So if we were Billionaires we would definetly create a big Global Award to Sports. And with so many Billionaires and so much money involved in sports, it is almost funny that this has not happened yet. Are sporting Billionaires not looking at their very own legacy?
A Hall of Fame is a good thing - but not large enough as we want to think big and global here.
Could not Carlos Slim do this - yeah but he would never focus on Floorball. Maybe Ingvar Kamprad... he would at least heard have about Floorball..

Anyway, Floorballcentral would like to nominate a Mr. Carlson from Minnepolis and a Mr. Ahlquist from Gothenburg for this the non-existing "Nobel Prize for sports" as the creators of the new sport Floorball.

And that ain't too bad.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
