Round-up today only


Floorballshop Spain explains on how the name Floorball was invented. If you do not know this read their great post. here http://www.floorballsupershop.com/blog/floorball-word-origins/ in English of course.

Our own take is something is style with that Ice Hockey is not called Ice Puck and we thus do think it is utterly important that the sport should be known under one name and not 11, or something. We do like the "slang" Swedish expression Plast - that stands for Plastic - but it sounds best in french we think Plastique...

From New York we read that San Diego merged thaier forces with Boston and that the tourney will sport a BosDiego team, and that this team will defend the US title as champs.. More reading here http://usinvitational.com/2013/08/26/bosdiego-on-a-mission-to-defend-the-us-championship-title/

From Canada we heard over the weekend that Steve Nash or his foundation, was engaged in some Floorball and that is very good news.

From the IFF we learn that Unihoc will provide some extra support to South Korea, Brasil and Malaysia. Good stuff for us here in the Americas since we need Brasil online - big time. They will let us know more how things are shaping up September 2nd. More here http://www.floorball.org/news.asp?id_tiedote=3382

And in Shanghai Angry Birds chirp on via twitter about Floorball from a Finnish/Chinese expo. Wonder if there has been any sticks up in the Oriental Pearl Tower yet ... whoops, today they have another even higher building - amazing how fast that town is growing..

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!
