A long lost Floorball tale



As we stopped at a pedestrian crossing today at least ten other cars did not stop as a pedestrian tried to cross the road.
In Wisconsin - as well as in many other states across the USA - there is a state law to stop your vehicle and let walking people go across the road.

This sight took us back to the ice age or about the time when Saddam Hussein used to send Russian designed Scud missiles in the Israeli direction, ie pre first gulf war time.
A close friend that we played Floorball with at this time in Gothenburg, Sweden had a very infamous shot. It said boom bang poff as he hit the ball with smoke and the floorball ball had a mysterious way to fall with a very short trajectory - irrespective of this - he used to score. Yepp we called him the SCUD. Just because of the way he fired his Floorball shots. They looked like an old and tired Russian designed missile enhanced by Hussein’s troops. But still deadly.

In Gothenburg at this time is was also a law to let pedestrians to cross the road and cars were supposed to stop for people walking.
On night - after Floorball practice - our friend the Scud walked home with his sturdy Floorball stick in his hand. As he tried to cross a street in downtown Gothenburg, a car tried to force its way forward to stop Scud in his tracks.
The eyes of the Scud turned red. His right hand grabbed the Floorball stick with force. He swung the stick lightning fast, just as you swing the arm in freestyle swimming, with Full Force.
It said WHACK bang poff - right on the hood of the car.

Even if this perhaps is not what we recommend any Floorball player to do - it still shows the versatility of most any Floorball stick.

Even if we told you what Scud works with today - no, You would not never believe us.

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!
