A Nittany Lion In The World Cup!

A long time ago, a bunch of us high school basketball players at DAHS decided that Field Hockey was an easy sport.  We all played street hockey and felt we would naturally translate our puck prowess to the hard-little-ball prowess of the field hockey grass.  When the girls team got wind of this they challenged us to a game.

Needless to say, we were waaaaayy wrong.  The rules of the game and the stick handling are alien to anyone playing that other hockey. We were beaten like an old rug.

John McGraw has played field hockey for years and even helped coach the women's team at PSU.  He is now in Canberra, Australia as a member of the Over-40 Mens World Cup Team.
Two games in, they are 0-2, but have games each day for the next week.  A rather grueling schedule.  Hope to hear from him when he returns to his job at PSU-Hershey Medical Center.  Go John!
