New media & CUBA enlightment?


So as we liked the idea to embed Mr, Obama's YouTube interview here.. (see post below).
OK, let us yet again state why we liked this:
A) It is a new kind of media
B) It is the kind of media that goes straight into the hearts of young people

We also saw in that clip how the focus of the interview moved a bit from the President to the interviewers as they carried a young style. Utterly interesting stuff we think for Floorball too - in particular.

Then of course a piece of that material was on talks about Cuba.
So why not continue on that subject.

We honestly do not think anyone ever played Floorball on Cuba - not even Christopher Columbus as he came there a long time ago.

Until last week.
The first ever Floorball picture from Cuba? We think so.
It was hot and rather windy to play outside. But the venue we found was equipped with electric lights, polished concrete, 2 hockey nets, a big rink and a large light display for the results. Yep, it was a ball hockey or inline hockey installation - just perfect for some outdoor floorball - if it not had been that windy.

Why is this interesting?
1) The USA and Cuba tries to normalize their relations a bit
2) Jamaica is just a pebble toss away on the east side - they know Floorball
3) The Cayman Islands to the other side has a thriving Ball hockey community - that Floorball representatives visited a few years back

OK, nothing more is in the plans for now - that we have heard of - but CUBA might be very ready for Floorball too one day... &
- a very nice Havanna cigar could lighten up that moment!

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!
