A unique international competition will be played for the first time on U.S. soil later this month, right here in Minnesota. Think ice hockey meets field hockey. The game is called Bandy.
A sport that combines ice hockey and soccer is getting its due in the Twin Cities. The USA Bandy Hall of Fame will induct its first members on Oct. 22 at the Aster Cafe in Minneapolis.
If you want to play the game, it pays to learn from the best. In Sweden, the sport of Bandy is about as popular as a game can get.
We know that many of you have some time off from work this week and that the kids are home from school until after New Year’s. That means you may be looking for a place to have some family fun.
