I'm not talking
about some heavily padded game where morons slide around on frozen water and think with their fists. I'm talking
. The real hockey
Americans call "field
. And just before you make some ridiculous claim
that "Ice hockey
is way better, and has been around longer
and is way more
popular" check the facts.
1.) Field hockey
is an Olympic sport with a world
2.) It's played in North America, South America, Aisa, Australia, and Europe.
3.) It's vastly popular in places like England, The Netherlands, China, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, Argentina, India, Pakistan, The United States, ect.
4.) There are famous field hockey
players; Teun De Noojer, Christopher Zeller, Nikki Hudson, ect.
5.) The earliest forms of the game date back
to 500BC, and depictions from the ancient Egyptians playing hockey
(the real hockey
that is) have been discovered.
Oh and before you go saying how "it's a girl's sport", think again. Some of the best players in the world
are men. The only reason, the U.S. views it like that is because it was introduced
to the country in the early 1900's via an English Woman.

the hell is a Dita? I use a Bauer!"
player; "Ohhhh, you must mean

cause that's the name it deserves."
