Nike and Team USA recently introduced the revolutionary new uniforms that the team will be wearing in the upcoming Olympics. Wind tunnel tested the high-tech uni's are designed to dramatically cut air resistance and reduce drag thus allowing players wearing them extra speed and endurance... theoretically.
Aerodynamics in hockey? It's a genuine revolution.Many attempts over the years have been made at introducing new concepts into the hockey uniform, each one has failed and the traditional design remains largely unchanged. Shortly we will witness the success or failure of the latest attempt at updating the sports standard uniform. With the outlook for Team USA at the Olympics not looking to good at this point we'll need every advantage we can get to medal... even if it should come from space age uni's.
There are those who call hockey the fastest game on earth. Unlike any time in hockey's history, the action on the ice is faster and quicker, with blinding speeds and unfathomable power. With pucks traveling at 100 miles per hour, and players slicing the ice at 20 mph, demands on player performance have never been greater. And that goes double for apparel.
Without sacrificing an ounce of heritage, and passing rigid International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) standards, the Nike Swift Hockey Jersey and Sock reduces overall weight, adds increased mobility and comfort while making the jersey aerodynamically the most advanced in the world.
BUZZING THE NET:
Guitars, PUCKS and Rock & Roll It's an AGE OLD Question ? Bizarre game ends with EVACUATION " I DON'T like the rule ! " On-Line Puck Contests... for CA$H
I'd like to take a moment to congratulate those crazed puckheads up north at Battle of Alberta for hitting the 20,000 mark on their site odometer and for this bit of late-breaking Canadian news that I'm sure they're all very excited about up there. I guess our northern neighbors have to allow their consenting adults the flexibility to stay warm anyway possible. WOOHOO ! Anyways, we here at oddman central will be hitting the 10,000 mark sometime today and I'd like to personally thank everyone who has been stopping by these past months. The oddman will use this momentous occasion to get s@#t-faced tonight while watching the CenterIce puck offerings because afterall the odd one never really needs much of a excuse to party.
The future's uncertain
And the end is always near.
So, Let it roll, baby, roll.
Let it roll, all night long ........ JM
