Novelty hockey team

Hockey is a more relevent sport for kids than basketball, baseball and football now. It is extreme and they identify with the uniform style and it is a natural extension of rollerblading.

Assemble a trick novelty team of hockey players that travel the world and amaze young crowds with their antics in exhibition games. The shows would be amped up with cool music and pyrotechnics.

More fun than Barney on ice.

Although hockey would probably lend itself better to championship wrestling. "Oh... they've got that purple dinosaur stuffed into the goal... and Bad News Barishnikov with the slapshot!"

I just had an idea for "Mike Tyson on Ice" ... but probably not suitable for younger audiences

I think you're on to something, [wombat]. I give you a toothless bun, although today (halloween) it'll look like fish. +

wombat - it is far far easier for a kid to pickup a $10 basketball and walk to a public court/playground than it is to get all that hockey gear and get a ride to an ice rink where they have to pay to use it... nonetheless, i like the idea.
