Out of Africa

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Not quite hockey, but still:

So, a bunch of Somalis living in Scandinavia have decided to enter a team and represent Somalia in the World Cup of bandy! :lol:

And some say they aren't assimilating... :roll:

The Somali team scored a historic goal the other night as they were beaten 22-1 by Germany.
There was joyous celebration on the pitch! :lol:

They've also lost 13-0 to the Ukraine, 12-0 to Japan and will face Mongolia tonight.

There are now 17 nations participating in the bandy world championship.
They're hoping it will eventually become an Olympic sport,but they're not quite there yet.

Seems the guy who scored Somalia's historic first goal is Canadian and has played hockey since he was eight...

Apparently managed the transition to effing HUGE ice (the pitch is the size of a football field) pretty well.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
