#NHL #Lockout Tweet of the freakin’ Day. Sigh… it’s BANDY!
Technically, the tweet of the day reads “Check your Wikipedia(s).”
@FrackingSabres Outdoor hockey on a frozen soccer pitch. Very popular in Russia. Check your wikipedias.— Slava Malamud (@SlavaMalamud) September 28, 2012
Yea I said “jerk.”
Still, despite the slightly implied “Read your own Freedom-Online-Dictionary-You-Internet-Hand-Out-Information-Junkies,” Slava is truly a great follow on the Twitter, and if you’re not following him, then you’re doin’ it wrong-o.
So what is “bandy?” Well, it turns out that it is all sorts of awesome – so long as you consider using frozen soccer fields as an ice rink.
FROZEN SOCCER FIELDS AS A HOCKEY RINK.
Oh, hell yes!
Bandy. We have bandy! It’s ours, and Bettman and Co. (Pegula) can never take it away.
Watching Semin's debut in VHL, as Sokol Krasnoyarsk has sold out the arena. Fun fact: most popular sports in Krasnoyarsk - rugby and bandy— Slava Malamud (@SlavaMalamud) September 28, 2012
Light at the end of the tunnel of the NHL lockout? Can we organize this in Delaware Park? Hell yes.
Let’s do this.
Screw you, NHL, we can bandy.
Who’s up for a game?
