    But Mara I had no choice but to use a hockeystick, these barbarian people doesn't have bandysticks around.

    Although I prefer hockey, I have to agree that it is absolutely ridiculous that they don't have bandy in Canada.

    Bandy is a noble game that you play on ice on a field as big as a soccer field. You use a curved stick, much shorter than a hockeystick, and a little hard red ball. The rules are quite similiar to soccer.

    [link=http://www.americanbandy.com/]americans can play it[/link] [link=http://www.escape.ca/~gbgre/]and some canadians have seen the light[/link]

    I guess you could say that bandy is to hockey what rugby is to american football. Faster, less protection and it's played outdoors in the cold. OK, maybe the outdoor part doesn't apply... ;)

    Anyway...

    Anything's better than curling. All you need to play that is the skills of a janitor. Hahahaha! Am I allowed to put a scythe on the end of my bandystick just to make the contest even less fair? [face_mischief]

    Is bandy on skates?

    It kind of seems like field hockey to me, but without the ice.

    yeah, it's very much like field hockey, but on ice and skates. The stick is a bit different though.

    I ´recently became a big hockey fan due to Anne. But I have no idea what my favourite team was. Anne told me what team I was supose to cheer on, but it slipped my mind.

    As you all understand, I'm a die-hard fan. ;)
