On New Years Eve I had plenty of things to do but only one thing on my mind.
(this is possibly the greatest Broom Hockey team ever! Ha... so redneck but so wonderful!)
It was everything I remembered about it! So so wonderful! Now lets back up a bit. I stink at all sports. Every single one. The best I ever get is mediocre at wimpy sports like bowling and badminton. But for some reason the intensity of Broom Hockey makes my little heart do cartwheels! For those of you that don't understand what Broom Hockey is, let me educate you!
You start with sticks with a triangle shaped rubber broom like things on the end. Then, you venture onto the ice with no skates, just your shoes. Its set up like regular hockey with goalies and what not. Just imagine Mighty Ducks with brooms and you are there. The best part about it is that no one is really very good at it! Its a whole lot of falling and running back and forth in an effort to try to swing at a little ball. According to wikipedia, "At a social level, broomball is enjoyable for all players regardless of sporting skill. you do not need any skills." No wonder I love this sport! You need no skills! Perfect for a skill-less? person like me!
I highly recommend that you try this sport! Its such a rush!
P.S.--Look for it in the upcoming olympics. They are trying to get it in! I would be glued to the T.V.!
