In 1874, the testicular cup became mandatory in hockey. It wasn't until 1974 that the helmet became mandatory. As Mihalik stated, "It only took 100 years to figure out that the head was just as important." He studied 18 helmets, and could not find one that fit properly. Seven could be removed without unfastening the strap. But on a positive note, the technology continues to improve. </span></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="6" align="left" valign="top"> <p class="style2" align="right"><span class="style4">Reprinted from Hockey Voice -July 2011 </span></p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="3" rowspan="2" align="left" valign="top"> <p><br /> <img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/november2011-newsletter_11.jpg" border="0" width="269" height="157" /></p> <p> </p> </td> <td colspan="3"></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="5" align="left" valign="top"> <p class="style2"><span class="style3">Hockey Season Is Here</span><br /> It is not to late to order your team hockey bags!

A major problem I used to have with bags has been the handles not being large enough to carry comfortably. My new bag carries all my cheerleading items with enough space left to throw in some last minute extras. Your cheerleading bag comes in all kinds of colors, and it had the perfect combination for my school and logo. </span></p> <p><span class="style5">Perhaps my most favorite feature is the choice in nylon that protects it from moisture and mildew. This is so helpful because as a cheerleader we often are in unpredictable weather conditions. I needed a bag to last and this one will do it for me. Just as important is the affordable price and quality. It is American made and it is worth every penny. The zippers are heavy duty and withstand my rough and quick hands. I definitely recommend these bags for any cheerleader who demands quality first, and style.</span><span class="style8"> -Amanda C., Vermont</span></p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" valign="top"> <p><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/november2011-newsletter_16.jpg" border="0" width="212" height="198" /><br /> <br /></p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="5" align="left" valign="top"><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/november2011-newsletter_17.jpg" border="0" width="444" height="160" /></td> <td colspan="3" align="left" valign="top"><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/november2011-newsletter_18.jpg" border="0" width="324" height="160" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="212" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="7" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="50" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="126" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="49" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="38" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="67" height="1" /></td> <td><img src="http://www.sarahfwimberley.info/images/BfS/spacer.gif" border="0" width="219" height="1" /></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> text/html 2011-08-04T00:39:59+00:00 http://www.bagsforsports.com/ Bags For Sports August 2011 Newsletter http://www.bagsforsports.com/blog/july-2011-newsletter <tabl<table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 100%; margin:0; padding:0 20px;"> <tr> <td> <table width="706" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 620px; border-collapse:collapse; text-align:left; font-family:Tahoma; font-weight:normal; font-size:12px; line-height:15pt; color:#000; margin:0 auto;"> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height:5px;margin:0;padding:20px 0 0 0;;line-height:0;"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style=" width:620px;" valign="top"> <table width="98%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:100%; border-collapse:collapse; font-family:Tahoma; font-weight:normal; font-size:12px; line-height:15pt; color:#000;"> <tr> <td width="340" valign="top" bgcolor="#333333" style="width: 320px; padding:10px 0 10px 20px; background:#333333; background-color:#000; color:#ffffff;"> </td> <td width="364" valign="top" bgcolor="#333333" style="width: 300px; padding:10px 20px 10px 20px; background:#333333; background-color:#000; text-align:right; color:#ffffff;"><span style="width: 320px; padding:10px 0 10px 20px; background:#333333; background-color:#000; color:#ffffff;"><a href="http://bagsforsports.com/blog-news/all">Read our blog</a><span style="color:#414141;"> | </span><a style="color:#CB3234; text-decoration:underline;" href="http://www.bagsforsports.com">Visit our website </a></span></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="2" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="width: 620px; padding:0px 0 0px 0px; background:#000000; background-color:#000000;"><a href="http://www.bagsforsports.com"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/logo.jpg" alt="Bags For Sports" width="620" height="71" border="0" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td height="35" colspan="2" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="width: 620px; padding:0px 0 0px 0px; height: 5px; background:#000000; background-color:#000000;"> <p style="padding:0; margin:0; line-height:160%; font-size:18px;"><a href="http://www.bagsforsports.com"></a></p></td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding:20px 0 0 0; color:#000000;" valign="top"> <img hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="Cheerleading Season!" height="250" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/June2011/MainPictureJuly.jpg" style="border:0;" width="620" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height:5px;margin:0;padding:20px 0 0 0;line-height:0;"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="padding:10px 20px; background:#ffffff; background-color:#ffffff; text-align: left;" valign="top"> <p><span style="color:#999999; font-size:8pt;">August 2011, Issue #208</span><br /> </p> <p>We not only guarantee our bags...</p> <p style="padding:0; margin:0 0 11pt 0;line-height:160%; font-size:18px;">WE PROVIDE FREE LIFETIME REPAIRS ON OUR BAGS! </p> <p style="padding:0; margin:0 0 11pt 0;line-height:160%; font-size:18px;">Making an Impression</p> <p>John Wayne left an imprint of his fist. Groucho Marx left an imprint of his cigar. Jimmy Durante left an imprint of his famous nose. The adventurous Hogwarts trio pressed their wands into the wet cement when they were honored. Whoopi Goldberg chose to use her braids, while Betty Grable chose to leave an imprint of her legs for posterity. Since 1927, over two hundred Hollywood celebrities have made a <strong>permanent impression in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theater.</strong><br /> <br /> Grauman's Hollywood pagoda just might be the most famous movie theater in the world. Throughout the years, it has hosted numerous Hollywood premieres. It has appeared in dozens of movies ranging from "Singing in the Rain" to "Speed." Millions of visitors from around the world drop by each year to view the handprints, footprints, and other impressions left by their favorite stars.<br /> <br /> It is often said that to "visit Hollywood and not the see Grauman's Chinese Theater is like visiting China and not seeing the Great Wall." If you're planning to visit the city of the stars any time in the near future, you might be interested in knowing that <strong>you too can make an impression at this famous theater.</strong> For prices starting at about $15, the fine folks at the theater gift shop will set your handprints in cement. Prices vary, depending on the frame you choose for your rather weighty souvenir.<br /> <br /> When you're in business, making a strong impression is essential to your survival. Personally, I'm not so sure that, in most circles, carrying a framed imprint of your hands is going to do the trick. From my experience, giving your customers and team members a chance to display your logo on an item that they will actually enjoy wearing works much better.  </p> <p><strong>We offer team apparel screen-printed with your logo in addition to our team equipment bags. </strong><br /> <br /> <img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/June2011/july2011_clip_image002.gif" alt="Description: Description: http://www.bagsforsports.com/Hockey/xlgoalie_cordura_11.gif" width="450" height="282" border="0" align="baseline" /></p></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height:5px;margin:0;padding:0;line-height:0;"> <img alt="alt" height="5" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/Newsletter_border_Bottom2.png" vspace="0" style="border:0; padding:0; margin:0; line-height:0;" width="620" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height:5px;margin:0;padding:20px 0 0 0;line-height:0;"> <img alt="alt" height="5" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/Newsletter_border_top2.png" vspace="0" style="border:0; padding:0; margin:0; line-height:0;" width="620" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td width="704" height="160" valign="top" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="padding:10px 20px; background:#ffffff;background-color:#ffffff;"> <span style="font-size: 8pt;color: #999999;">In Season <img alt="↓" height="6" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/arrow2.png" width="10" /></span><br /> <p style="padding:0; margin:0 0 11pt 0;line-height:160%; font-size:18px;">The Gym Bag</p> <p align="center"><strong><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/June2011/july2011_clip_image001.jpg" alt="alt" width="486" height="270" border="0" /></strong><br /> </p> <p><strong>A great way to bring attention to you team, school, or community!</strong><br /> <br /> Offered in durable Cordura Nylon this bag is both practical and attractive.<br /> The bag measures 23 inches in length and is 11 inches deep and 11 inches wide.

Size is also a factor – screen-print can be adjusted to be in proportion to your bag.  Often embroidery often appears smaller. The best use for embroidery on a bag is for a player name – but even in this instance should be compared to print costs to be sure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck! We are happy to provide you with cost estimates on both screen-print and embroidery when you prepare your custom bag order.</p> <p> </p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/Newsletter_border_Bottom2.png" style="border: 0; padding: 0; margin: 0; line-height: 0;" vspace="0" width="620" height="5" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/Newsletter_border_top2.png" style="border: 0; padding: 0; margin: 0; line-height: 0;" vspace="0" width="620" height="5" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 10px 20px; background: #ffffff; background-color: #ffffff;" valign="top" width="704" height="160" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><span style="font-size: 8pt; color: #999999;"><span style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;"><img src="http://www.nike-heelsforwomen.com/pic/Air-Jordan-12-Sneaker-For-Women-White-Black-544.jpg" vspace="10" width="213" height="140" hspace="10" align="right" /></span>Fact or Fiction? <img alt="↓" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/arrow2.png" width="10" height="6" /></span><br /> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;">A Useless Fact You May Not Wish To Retain</p> <p>79% of males sport shoe wearers choose white shoes.  <br /> Only 34% of women sport shoe wearers choose white shoes.</p> <p>While we celebrate the 4th of July as our US Independence day – did you know that 3 of our American Presidents died on July 4th? </p> <p>They are John Adams, James Monroe, and Thomas Jefferson.</p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/Newsletter_border_top2.png" style="border: 0; padding: 0; margin: 0; line-height: 0;" vspace="0" width="620" height="5" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 10px 20px; background: #ffffff; background-color: #ffffff;" valign="top" width="704" height="302" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-size: 8pt; color: #999999;">Football Season <img alt="↓" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/arrow2.png" width="10" height="6" /></span></p> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Football/football_coach_bag_11.gif" vspace="10" width="297" height="185" hspace="10" align="right" /><span style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;">Football Bags</span></p> <p>We offer several styles and sizes to accommodate every level of play.

A major problem I used to have with bags has been the handles not being large enough to carry comfortably. My new bag carries all my cheerleading items with enough space left to throw in some last minute extras. Your cheerleading bag comes in all kinds of colors, and it had the perfect combination for my school and logo.</p> <p>Perhaps my most favorite feature is the choice in nylon that protects it from moisture and mildew. This is so helpful because as a cheerleader we often are in unpredictable weather conditions. I needed a bag to last and this one will do it for me. Just as important is the affordable price and quality. It is American made and it is worth every penny. The zippers are heavy duty and withstand my rough and quick hands. I definitely recommend these bags for any cheerleader who demands <br /> quality first, and style.</p> <p> </p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 0 20px 15px 20px; background-color: #000;" bgcolor="#000000"> <table style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; font-family: Tahoma; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15pt; color: #ffffff;" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="padding: 20px 0;" colspan="2"><a href="http://www.bagsforsports.com"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/logo2.png" alt="Fresh Newsletter" style="border: 0;" width="321" height="71" align="right" border="0" /></a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 0 0 20px 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> text/html 2011-06-22T18:03:56+00:00 http://www.bagsforsports.com/ Bags For Sports June 2011 Newsletter http://www.bagsforsports.com/blog/june-2011-newsletter <table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 100%; margin: 0; padding: 0 20px;"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table width="706" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 620px; border-collapse: collapse; text-align: left; font-family: Tahoma; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15pt; color: #000; margin: 0 auto;"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;"><br /></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 620px;" valign="top"> <table width="98%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; font-family: Tahoma; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15pt; color: #000;"> <tbody> <tr> <td colspan="2" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="width: 620px; padding: 0px 0 0px 0px; background: #000000; background-color: #000000;"><a href="http://www.bagsforsports.com"><img src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/Feb2011/images/logo.jpg" alt="Bags For Sports" width="620" height="71" border="0" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td height="35" colspan="2" valign="middle" bgcolor="#000000" style="width: 620px; padding: 0px 0 0px 0px; height: 5px; background: #000000; background-color: #000000;"> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;"><a href="http://www.bagsforsports.com"></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 20px 0 0 0; color: #000000;" valign="top"><img hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="Baseball Season!" height="250" src="http://www.bagsforsports.com/Newsletters/June2011/MainPicture.jpg" style="border: 0;" width="620" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="padding: 10px 20px; background: #ffffff; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left;" valign="top"><span style="color: #999999; font-size: 8pt;">June 2011, Issue #206</span><br /> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;">Girls Field Hockey - Rule Changes for Fall Season</p> <p>High school field hockey players will be required to wear protective eyewear, effective with the 2011-12 season.</p> <p>The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Board of Directors, in its April 13 meeting in Indianapolis, voted to mandate the use of protective eyewear that meets the current American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard for field hockey.</p> <p>NFHS field hockey rules previously allowed - but did not require - the wearing of eyewear that meets the current ASTM standard.

The game in fact has been played in different styles throughout civilized history.<br /> <br /> The early Japanese played a game similar to soccer and was also similar to the American style football back in 1000 BC. There is not too much information available about this game except that the ball was round and large being kicked between two teams playing in a small field. <br /> <br /> A game was developed in China known as ˜cuju it had a ball that was filled with feathers and hair and was kicked between two teams required to get the ball through a small ring. Cuju was continuously played for nearly 2000 years and it died in 1600s.<br /> <br /> The Chinese version of the game was famous in Korea and Japan. Many historians suggest that soccer during the renaissance period may have been influenced by Asian games. The Romans also played a type of football that was more exactly described as a cross between rugby and soccer but it had a lot of brutality.<br /> <br /> In Europe, air filled bags were known probably before since 100 BC as they were a type of ball used in Roman game called ˜follis”. This was very much similar to modern rugby than soccer.<br /> <br /> During the middle ages in Europe, a type of soccer was banned in England many times for being public annoyance and dangerous. It was closely linked to a Roman game called harpastum known as mob football.<br /> <br /> Soccer hooliganism is globally dealt with in the  modern game, it was also felt in England back in 1300s and 1600s. The game was banned many times because of the unruly behavior of players. <br /> <br /> Some local Australian tribes used to play a game of football involving the leading player to kick a ball in to the air for other players to catch. Although this is not closely related with modern soccer but it can be seen that ball sports and games were invented by almost every society and they are not Chinese or Greco-Roman invention.<br /> <br /> The history of modern soccer is definitely in England. The name soccer comes from the word association. The Cambridge rules were written in 1848 allowing some most famous schools of England to compete with each other under common rules. The Football Association partly used these rules in 1863.<br /> <br /> As professional soccer developed with the formation of leagues, it provided a competitive playing environment which turned soccer into a sport viewed by spectators. <br /> <br /> Major soccer leagues founded in Brazil, UK, Italy, Germany and other nations encouraged the culture of clubs and international teams around the world. It is so popular that the World Cup is watched live on TV by millions of people around the globe. Nowadays, national teams play soccer championships and over the last fifty years, FIFA World Cup has come to dominate as international soccer championship. FIFA World Cup games have achieved great number of crowds and also television viewing numbers were in billions over the duration of the competition.<br /> <br /> The first FIFA Club World Cup was held in 2000 and this event is gaining fame and promoting soccer throughout the world. Corinthians of Brazil won the first FIFA Club World Cup.<br /> <br /> text/html 2011-05-06T21:58:35+00:00 http://www.bagsforsports.com/ Bags For Sports May 2011 Newsletter http://www.bagsforsports.com/blog/may-2011-newsletter <table style="width: 100%; margin: 0; padding: 0 20px;" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table style="width: 620px; border-collapse: collapse; text-align: left; font-family: Tahoma; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15pt; color: #000; margin: 0 auto;" width="706" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 620px;" valign="top"><br /></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="height: 5px; margin: 0; padding: 20px 0 0 0; line-height: 0;" valign="top"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 10px 20px; background: #ffffff; background-color: #ffffff;" valign="top" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><span style="color: #999999; font-size: 8pt;">May 2011, Issue #204</span><br /> <p style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 11pt 0; line-height: 160%; font-size: 18px;">Mr. Versatility</p> <p><strong><img src="http://beisbol007.blogia.com/upload/20101111125033-cesar-tovar2.jpg" vspace="5" width="192" align="right" border="1" height="248" hspace="5" />During his playing days, he was known as "Mr. Versatility."</strong> In 1967, for example, he played 70 games at third base, 64 games in center field, 36 games at second base, 10 games in left field, 9 games as the shortstop, and 5 more games as the right fielder. <br /> <br /> All this moving around didn't seem to hurt his hitting much<strong>.</strong> He managed to finish in the top 10 in runs, hits, doubles, triples, stolen bases, on base percentage, times being hit by a pitch, and sacrifices that year.<br /> <br /> On September 22, 1968, he took the mound for the Minnesota Twins and pitched a scoreless first inning, striking out Reggie Jackson in the process. <strong>He then went on to play a different position each successive inning.</strong> By the time the game was through, he had become the second player in Major League Baseball history to play every position in a game.<br /> <br /> Cesar Tovar could do it all.<br /> <br /> For a dozen years, he impressed his teammates with his defensive skills and frustrated opposing pitchers with a wide range of offensive tools. Barry Moore, Mike Cuellar, Dave McNally, Dick Bosman, and Jim "Catfish" Hunter all lost bids for no-hitters to the pesky bat of Tovar. <br /> <br /> Mickey Lolich and Bill Freehan have a different memory of this dangerous opponent. On May 18, 1969, Lolich was pitching for the Detroit Tigers. Bill Freehan was catching. Rod Carew and<strong> </strong>Cesar Tovar were running them ragged<strong>.</strong> In the second inning of that game, Carew and Tovar combined for five stolen bases. Carew stole second, third, and home. Tovar swiped third and home ahead of the speedy Carew.<br /> <br /> This not only set a record for the most steals by a club in one inning; it was also only the second time in Major League history that any club had stolen home twice in the same inning. <br /> <br /> Tovar's middle name was Leonardo. In my humble opinion, it was an appropriate middle<strong> </strong>name<strong>.</strong> In many ways, Cesar Tovar was the daVinci of baseball.</p> <p>While we cannot claim to be daVinci, our bags are versatile like “Pepi” – and we got a bag for every activity.
