Hockey Fun and Sports Fact Of The Day

For anybody looking for something unproductive to do at work today, (instead of working). I have the perfect fix. Go to Google’s home page, and you will see that the logo for the day is a Zamboni themed arcade game. Very addictive, and a very good waste of time if you just can’t seem to focus on the tasks at hand. But why a Zamboni game you may ask? It’s all in honor of Frank Zamboni’s 112th birthday. It is because of this man, resurfacing the ice in between periods is no longer like watching men tame a wild lion, with a hose and many squeegees. Yes thats right, before the Zamboni men would come out on the ice with a hose, and try to fill in the grooves cut out by the steel of athletes. So today we thank Mr. Zamboni, for keeping hockey games running smoothly for 58 years and counting.
