Bizarre Game of Hockey and Upcoming Playoff TV Schedule (yeah, cuz they go together, lol)
One of the more bizarre games ever invented, did you know that there’s an actual underwater version of ice hockey?
No, it’s not played under a melted ice rink.
This game is actually played in a pool that is – at minimum – 6-8 feet deep. Two teams of six members each fight against to score a goal with a puck that’s, well, 6-8 feet under water. The players wear fins for speed and agility, but also use masks and snorkels for air. For the most part, though, the heavy lead puck has to be maneuvered with a sort of knock-hockey stick almost that’s about a foot long while holding your breath. There are some pretty *ahem* in-depth rules for this bizarre game and believe it or not, nationals championships are held fairly regularly, with Underwater Hockey clubs spread all over.
Okay, well it’s kind of hard to segue from underwater hockey to the upcoming week’s national coverage of hockey so I’m just going to take a leap and say here it is. All times are EST. Enjoy!
