Via Oxdog this weeks cooolest picture



Full photo credits to Oxdog..

Why is this such an utterly cool picture? Two things, first as Phil Carlson - as he described how the early US Floorball history came alive in Minnesota - he said that his cousin Clinton V Carlson started out to invent a practice ball for golf in 1948. His patent was granted 1952 and...later on they scaled it up to be used with plastic sticks,,,, yup Phil Carlson also told us that the very first plastic sticks that came out via the Cosom corporation - they were inspired by golf clubs and field hockey clubs...

One more thing a picture like this fully reveal eh what activity is ancient and old and what activity is new relativistic and brave for tomorrow... thx OXDOG!

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!
