A recent challenge was put out between cats in North America. Magoo, of Alberta Canada, and Edsel, of the mitten state, had meows back and forth about who would be the best tub hockey players.
It was decided that the best way to resolve this would be to form a tub hockey league. The governing body being the Feline International Tub Hockey Federation(FITHL) has been formed. The Canada group has posted the “Official Rules of Tub Hockey” on January 16.
The FITHL has also posted the basic Cat Bargaining Agreement(CBA) on January 23rd. All cats wishing to participate should read and resolve to abide by both the rules and bargaining agreement. The various human, beans or two legged ones of each cat must also uphold their part of the CBA
Numerous participates have expressed an interest in playing. There is a strong contingent of possible teams being formed in the Great Lakes Region, but participants have expressed an interest as far south as Tennessee and one even from Australia. Practice sessions are being conducted now and final teams rosters are being set. Team logos and colors should be available soon.
It is hoped that a round robin banquet, excuse me, tournament may be held in the near future. Stay tuned for this exciting new sport.
If participates work hard enough maybe this could become an Olympic sport in future years.
