Lindenhurst[edit]

Another popular area for pond hockey tournaments is the pond in Lindenhurst, New York, at the Town Hall of Babylon. Two young college players, Tim LaRocco and Joe Calasso, both natives of Lindenhurst, have an unofficial undefeated record in over eight years of games on the pond.[3]

Isn't this self-promotional? And the ref link doesn't work, gives a 404 error. 76.66.193.90 (talk) 10:50, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

It's entirely spurious, the ref isn't even for that passage: [1] 76.66.193.90 (talk) 11:59, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I agree - thanks for your edits. Awickert (talk) 18:34, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

The 'native' origin story has never been proven. In fact, hockey likely comes from camanachd, the Scottish version of hurley. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.207.174.187 (talk) 23:40, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
