      Kicksledding is physical activity for the new millennium. It is a pleasant and environmental-friendly sport for everybody. Snowy and icy winters offer unsurpassed possibilities for kicksledding even in areas without any specific sports facilities. Kicksled is a traditional means of transportation in Nordic countries. However, its significance has decreased as the use of motor vehicles has increased. Furthermore, many roads and streets are sanded and salted to increase the traction of wheeled vehicles, reducing the suitable places for kicksledding. White Christmas in the past ... and nowadays (Suomen Kuvalehti 30.11.1963) Although kicksledding is still part of everyday life in Nordic countryside and small towns, there are no books on the market presenting kicksledding as a fitness activity. This compact primer is written in order to guide beginning kicksledders as well as general sports enthusiasts by introducing the most important aspects of kicksledding from its proud history to available equipment. The primer might give new insight also to an experienced kicksledder. One can learn faster kicking techniques and training tips. In addition, the guide helps to find suitable conditions for kicksledding.

    Table of Contents
    Although croquet is a rather young sport, its ancestry can be traced at least to the 14th century, and there are a couple of stories about how it originated. One is that lawn bowlers developed an indoor form of their sport to be played during the winter, adding hoops and mallets to make the game more challenging on the much smaller playing area. This indoor version of lawn bowling then moved back outdoors and become known in France as paille-maille ("ball-mallet"). The other is that paille-maille was originally a form of outdoor billiards. However, judging by what scanty documentation there is, billiards seems to have come along about a century later. It's quite possible that the movement went the other waythat paille-maille moved indoors and become billiards. In any event, the sport existed for several centuries without becoming particularly popular. Scottish golfers seem to have taken it up, possibly as a kind of practice, during the 16th century and, when James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1604, he brought paille-maille equipment as well as golf clubs to his new court. Played during the 17th century by Charles II and his courtiers at St. James's Park in London, the name of the game was anglicized to Pall Mall, which also became the name of a nearby street. "Mall" then turned into a generic word for any street used for public strolls. And now, of course, it usually refers to an enclosed area where people stroll from store to store.

It featured rare memorabilia, the greats on interactive display, and it traced the history of sports broadcasting since its inception in the early 1920's. A popular attraction allowed fans to recreate early radio broadcasts from a scrolling LED board or dial their favorite sportscasters' most famous calls. (The 25,000 sq. ft. National Sports Gallery located in the MCI Center in Washington, D.C., was officially closed in 2000 to make room for office space.)

    Who invented Your Sport or game
    The game of Badminton was invented a long time ago; its origins go back at least 2000 years to the game of shuttlecock and battledore played in ancient India, Greece and China. Baseball originated before the American Civil War (1861-1865) as rounders, a humble game played on sandlots. Early champions of the game fine-tuned it to include the kind of skills and mental judgment that made cricket respectable in England. In particular, scoring and record-keeping gave baseball gravity. Basketball James Naismith, a Canadian, invented the game of basketball in 1891 while working at the YMCA. College at Springfield, Massachusetts. The first official basketball game was played at the Springfield, MA YMCA Training School. The University of Chicago played its first college basketball game, defeating the Chicago YMCA Training School 19-11, in 1894.

Blaten Geta Mersie Hazen W/Qirqos was a prolific writer whose works - thanks to his son Amha MH - continue to be valuable as landmark documents of Ethiopian way of life in the early 20th Century. The Blaten Geta is perhaps most remembered by the text book he wrote in early the century.

If you have any helpful suggestions or information email the webmaster. Pearl River Community College's Athletic tradition spans most of this century and includes some prominent and memorable sports figures, athletes, and coaches. Football Pearl River County Agricultural High School played its first football game in 1911, according to information gathered by former Director of Public Relations, Larry Stanford, for the Wildcats Roar sports magazine: ...Making its debut in 1911, the first-ever Wildcat team finished with a 2-1-1 record under head coach Blonde Williams (See Note Below.) The first game ever played by Pearl River (County Agricultural High School) was against Laurel in a hard-fought defensive battle that ended in an uncharacteristic 5-5 tie. Later in the debut season, halfback and Captain George Pearson scored Pearl Rivers first touchdown...Besides Pearson, other members of the Wildcats inaugural squad included tackle Basil Breland, tackle Ned Cooper, center Seancy Davis, guard Clyde Fulton, quarterback L.A. Hurst, guard John Lumpkin, end Tom Pearson, fullback Luther Smith, end Clarence Stewart, and halfback Hubert Strahan. Editor's Note: Blonde Williams, it is discovered, was not the first coach, but was listed as the coach for Mississippi Normal College's (now USM) football team and served as a referee at this game. The first football coach was Mr. L. A. Hurst. Mr. Hurst served as the school's second Agricultural teacher. During those times, the coach would often play as well. Hurst played on and coached the Pearl River "Aggies," as the team was known. This inaugural football team, after beating Laurel 6-3 claimed the State prep school championship. Their claim was not challenged.

The field house at College High in Bartlesville was paid for by the Phillips Foundation and provided a home for the team until the Adams Building gym was built downtown. The team disbanded in 1968 because of increased competition from professional teams. Four former 66ers made the Sports Illustrated '50 from 50' list from various states: Bob Kurland from Missouri, Burdy Halderson from Minnesota, Chuck Darling from Colorado, and Gary Thompson from Iowa.
