Being a contact team sport, Clearly Susan's ice hockey sports glasses depict the true essence of the sport that is played on ice, usually on a rink. Nothing gets sports fans more excited than chasing a hockey puck around while skating on ice.
Clearly Susan loves the sport and we have several customers who love ourhand painted ice hockey glassesin which we include designs of the team logo, the puck, the net, sticks and all the hockey gear.
Ice hockey is believed to have evolved from the simple stick and ball games played in the 18th and 19th century United Kingdom and elsewhere.
According http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_hockey/ "The contemporary sport of ice hockey was developed in Canada, most notably in Montreal, where the first indoor hockey game was played on March 3, 1875. Some characteristics of that game, such as the length of the ice rink and the use of a puck, have been retained to this day. Amateur ice hockey leagues began in the 1880s, and professional ice hockey originated around 1900.
The Stanley Cup, emblematic of ice hockey club supremacy, was first awarded in 1893 to recognize the Canadian amateur champion and later became the championship trophy of the NHL. In the early 1900s, the Canadian rules were adopted by the Ligue International de Hockey Sur Glace, the precursor of the IIHF and the sport was played for the first time in the Olympics in the Olympic Games of 1920."
