Ventures Hit The Web

Finally Ventures Men Hockey Club has hit the web. Not only is hockey the fastest sport on turf, it's the "Coolest Sport on Earth" (do you understand what I mean?). There is much debate about how hockey started, how its name came to be, and who invented it. Well, none of those questions are answered. No one knows who invented hockey. The game that most resembles hockey is the old sport of hurling. Is that where the word "hockey" came from? This game is played with two teams who chase a flat rock or a hardened cow dropping down a surface (usually frozen) that is used as the rink. To win, they must shoot the object into a net made of vines and branches. Those who believe in this theory point to the curved branch they used as a stick called a Hurley. Could this be the origin of the word "hockey"? Regardless to who invented the game, hockey has always been one of the world's favorite sports.more
