That actually looks like a really fun sport to play. I'm sure I won't be able to find a place to play it though unless I lived in Canada, Minnesota, or Europe. I'd love to try it out some day.

Looks like field hockey on ice.

Could be a good use for that plastic Mylec street hockey stick I've had since I was 4 though

Bandy is pretty popular sport in northern Sweden, Swedish-speaking Finland and some parts of Russia. It's a great sport - "football(soccer) on ice".

The nets are way to big. How does the goalie stop anything? He doesn't even get a stick?

No thanks...

LOL wow that looks like such an awesome sport! Soccer and hockey collide in a mass of awesome!!

I feel bad for the goalies in this. It's pure dangles for the players though... there's so much room to move around!

It is truly a great TV sport, like playing find the little red ball you never see. If hockey in the states hase problems with ratings they should put this on and the Nhl ratings will look great
