Longboard Hockey: They Use a Beer Can as a Puck

by Zach Dundas

June 27, 2010

Still on a bit of a buzz after writing about pato, Argentina’s indigenous hybrid of polo, basketball, and soccer, I found myself wondering: What will be the pato of the 21st Century? In other words, what sport will crossbreed a timely transportation technology (as pato did with the horse, frontier Argentina’s ride of choice) with put-the-rock-in-the-basket scoring?

Can I be the first to call for longboard hockey’s inclusion in the 2020 Olympics?
