A Magic Hand



Magic - it's pure magic. This image makes us think about "the force" in Star Wars...

This is one of the first ever "Fun Balls" - as developed, and used by Cosom Hockey - and later on, used in what is known today, as Floorball.

But it is not just the ball. This is the ball in the very beautiful hand of one of  its own creators.
Mr. Phil Carlson, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
The hand that more or less made this ball.
This is probably one of the best and most iconic Floorball images ever made - hrm..eh.. well.. at least by us here at Floorballcentral.

Take a look at it again, see the made in USA protruding text in the ball. look at the Safe-T-Play stamp. Also please notice the wear, the dirt and the tear, this is not a ball that has been laying on a book shelf - this ball has its own real history of action.

If anything should rest at a Floorball museum - this is it.

Yes, at Floorballcentral we, do not just want a Floorball statue - we'd love to see a Floorball museum - legacy is important not only for Floorball but for You too - as we all want to build the future... and we will.

1952 is our favorite year!
Minnesota and Cosom Hockey we love You!

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!
