Richard's Week of Floorball: Nordic Rivalry Edition

By Richard Eriksson on May 22, 2007 - 1:00am

Thanks to the fine folks at BC Floorball for the link back to yesterday's introduction to the series. Referring to me, they say "as soon as he realised Sweden is a top nation in Floorball he knew he HAD to play. Nothing like a bit of Nordic rivalry!" That's right, it took not Stewart's gentle pleas to get me to try the sport, but rather looking at the Wikipedia page for floorball and noticing that the Swedish men have won all the world championships to get my Icelandic blood boiling.

Richard's Week of Floorball: Introduction

By Richard Eriksson on May 21, 2007 - 11:07am

As the 1st annual BC Floorball Federation Challenge, held at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver on Saturday May 26th, approaches, I wanted to write a little bit about my experiences playing the new-to-me sport. Not being the hockey player in the family (that title belongs to my brother), it's been a little slow going, having to match what I know about basketball—positioning and moving around the court—to chasing a ball with a stick. Throughout the week, I'll post short thoughts about my admittedly limited experiences, what I like and don't like about the sport, and what I've learned and would still like to learn.

For more information on the sport and the tournament on the weekend, follow the links at the BC floorball association's website and blog.

Dave's Don Cherry Jacket and Tie at Canucks Outsider Live Game 6 - Image437

The Canucks Outsider Live premier live videocast for Game 6 rocked, let me count the ways:

1. Dave Olson's "Don Cherry Red" jacket was delightful to behold. Almost as delightful as Dave's punditry.

2. We had viewers from all around the world, from Australia to China as well as Canada and the USA.

3. We learned about Floorball and their fantastic cool sticks during the first intermission from Stewart and the BC Floorball guys

4. The fascinating topic of Iceland hockey and the Icelandic influence in Canada was covered by Richard during the second intermission.
