Get ready hockey enthusiasts and land-lubbing sea captains alike, National Field Hockey Day is here and it's ripe with possibilities for fun-filled merriment, and, of course, hockey! Begin the day by aligning your hockey sticks at sunrise (Who are we kidding? You're already surrounded by them in your bed.) and prepare to dive into the history and denizens of the sports world's power house - Field hockey!
It's national field hockey day on the 14th September.
Back in the good old hockey times of 2015, the world of social media witnessed an epidemic of sorts. A hockey epidemic. Out of nowhere, mentions of National Field Hockey Day took over cyberspace, swarming social posts, blogs, and twitter feeds. On 14 Sep 2015 to be precise, the interweb was abuzz with stick-wielding excitement, with a whopping 3871 mentions online. Look at you hockey enthusiasts, you tweet that pride!
No bones were broken, but who could tally the amount of shin guards used on the day that Twitter almost crashed, figuratively at least. They told tales of the exciting matches, nostalgic childhood stories of playing hockey and families gathered to celebrate the magnificent sport. Clearly, the love of hockey runs deeper than the grooves on a good hockey turf - now that's passion!
Some say Valentine's Day is the day for loved ones but we like to think that National Field Hockey Day is a close second. It is the day where the love of a sport brings everyone together, and get in the spirit of competition while also learning about sportsmanship, respect, and teammanship. Football and baseball, take a seat. It's Hockey Day!
