Yep, Just 4 Fun Sporting Club in Toronto have added paint to their boards. Paint that happens to be a sportaholik.com logo! The sportaholik.com crew headed over to the Just 4 Fun facility near Bloor and Lansdowne a few Sundays ago and slapped on some paint. This facility has been getting good use since opening last year, including being a regular TSSC floor hockey location. Many of your favourite sports can be played over at Just 4 Fun: ball hockey, basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, and more! (more…)

Two things every rec hockey team needs is 1) a jersey colour, and 2) a team name. Whether you’re playing ice hockey, floor hockey or any other type of hockey, these are essential. Many teams go the humour route when choosing their team names. Some come up with things that are, for sure, inside jokes (my ball hockey team years ago was the ‘Tuna Melts’, because my roommate at the time seemed to eat them every second day for dinner). Another ball hockey team of mine has gone under the ‘HomeWreckers’ banner since inception years ago (it’s a reference to one of the bowling teams on The Simpsons; other teams in that episode being Pin Pals, Channel 6 Wastelanders, DMV Regulation Kings, Springfield Police Framers, Holy Rollers, and The Stereotypes). Some teams we face in the TCSSC have names that I’m surprised make it past the censors (if there are any) but I must say I enjoy a creative (and clean) team name. Over at FantasyTeamNames.net they have a user generated list of hockey team names. Some of my favourites being the following:
- All Aboard the Cheechoo Train
- Honey Nut Chelios
- Crosby, Staals, and Nash
- Vanek Depressive
- Hejdukes, He Scores!
- Vanek at the Disco
- No Jokinen ‘Round
What is the name of your hockey team? Feel free to comment below.
Via Stephen Taylor, Stephane Dion shows off his, ummm, ball hockey skills below in this classic YouTube capture. We’re not taking political sides here at sportaholik.com, but you must admit Dion could use a bit of help with his game. It’s not exactly the best image you want to portray when you’re running for Prime Minister. I counted 12 shots, 0 goals. Anyone know where he can find some buddies to practice with? I wonder if Stephane Dion’s display of ball hockey prowess will make it into Stephen Harper’s upcoming hockey book?
