My favorite among hockey collectibles is vintage NHL jerseys and I'm not the
only fan that thinks the jerseys looked better in the past. Lately we have also
seen an upswing in the hockey jersey and NHL collectibles industry and you too
can turn back the time with vintage hockey jerseys.
Vintage hockey and
NHL jerseys jerseys are all the rage across the United States and Canada these
days. And not only are they popular Preston Smith
, they are big business too. When you go to the top
vintage hockey and NHL jersey stores in the big hockey cities and cool malls in
other places in North America, you see people paying big bucks for vintage
I can't say that hockey was better back then, but it sure
was something special about those old days of the National Hockey League. Many
fans do agree with me on that one
But I guess that?s the thing though.
These vintage NHL hockey jerseys are not just clothing. They are artifacts from
a long gone era, when all of our hockey heroes were still in the league for the
fun of playing ice hockey. You didn?t have to worry about guys sitting out a
season just because he didn't think his paycheck was big enough. You didn?t have
to wonder if the league was going to lock the players out and take the fun away
from us fans. And you especially didn?t have to wonder whether the hockey arenas
were targets for a terrorist attack or not.
These vintage jerseys are
gems from this pure and innocent past in ice hockey and the National Hockey
League. They are heart warming and comforting, (mostly) because the rinks
weren't as warm back then.
I actually also think that many of today's
players would agree that vintage hockey and NHL jerseys would look darn good on
them as well, just as they looked on previous player. The whole thing about
vintage hockey jerseys is one big fashion statement in the ice hockey scene.
They have done the classic green North Stars hockey jersey not to relive the
glory days of the NHL, but because the jersey looks slick. They throw on the
blue and white New York Rangers jersey from the old days not to celebrate those
awesome teams, but because they just don?t make jerseys like that
How can you get into this action? Either hit local stores to find
vintage hockey and NHL jerseys resellers. Or visit on line sites for auctions
and sales of your favorite teams, players Brandon

, and years.
The best place and the
first place I would go looking is eBay. This is where most people go to get
their hands on vintage hockey jerseys today. But, be forewarned: authentic
vintage hockey jerseys can cost a dime or two. That?s what happens when sports
stars buy them up and drive up demand.
But when you throw on one at your
favorite NHL or other hockey event or on a date, you?ll feel like ten times what
you spent. And who doesn't want to feel that way?
Imagine this, two combatants enter a ring to face each other with only their
own bodies to use as weapons. What tools can they use to defend both themselves
and to defeat their opponent? To take an inventory, they can punch with their
fists, use their elbows when in close, then grab to tie them up and throw a few
knee strikes. To complete these human weapons, they can also launch an arsenal
of kicks that includes one so powerful, you had better hide your Louisville
Slugger baseball bat. Many a Thai fighter representing their national
sport Nate Sudfeld

breaking this symbol of America's national sport, in half!
Sound a little
scary? This little known fringe sport is rapidly becoming popular outside the
borders of Thailand. Called Muay Thai, it literally means "The Eight Weapons."
Two fists, two elbows, two knees, and two shins are the tools a Muay Thai
combatant trains and hones to perfection. Rounds are fought much like western
boxing. Rounds are three minutes long, and bouts are in a roped ring. Gloves are
worn, but nothing covers their other weapons.
To allow a degree of safety
for the fighters and to create a sport, bloody as it is Kendall Fuller

These rules include no headbutts, attacking the eyes, fish hooking, or
Muay Thai Kickboxing started back in the medieval ages when wars
were fought with bows and arrows, swords, and pikes. And in hand-to-hand combat
arms, legs, knees, and elbows were also used as weapons. This sport which was
included in military training was made famous by King Nareusan 1560 A.D. During
one of the many battles between Burma and Siam he was captured. The Burmese knew
of his prowess as the best unarmed fighter in the realm and gave him a chance to
fight with their best for his freedom.
Upon his return to Siam he was
hailed as a hero and Siamese-style boxing Su'a Cravens
Redskins Jersey , as it was called then, was soon recognized as a
national sport. Boxing in this style reached its zenith of popularity about two
hundred years ago, i.e., in the reign of Prachao Sua (King Tiger), when it was
indulged in by all classes of the population.
From those days up until
the early part of this century, the fighters, particularly those in provinces,
used horsehide strips and later help in lieu of gloves. It was also a practice
at one time to grind pieces of glass into the help if both contestants agreed.
Since these practices were obviously dangerous to the fighters' health, regular
boxing gloves were introduced about 50 years ago and have been used ever since.
To the Thais Josh Doctson
Redskins Jersey , Muay Thai is regarded as a prestigious national
sport. Thai boys will in one or another way, intentionally or unintentionally,
learn how to box Thai style. Even Thai girls will know enough of the basic
principles and to be able to use it for self-defense when necessary.
Muay Thai, called Thai Boxing by foreigners, is Thailand's national
sport and is now getting more popular in many countri. Cheap
