I think the gauntlet was thrown for the New Orleans 2024 Olympic bid. Worth it just for the opening ceremony.

When did Field Hockey become so cool? Yes, I’m talking about the masks.

We interrupt the March Madness first round tip-offs to bring you Kate Middleton playing field hockey. Sorry.
She shoots, she scores! The former Kate Middleton smashed home a goal Thursday as she played a bit of field hockey while visiting the British Olympic women’s team. The Duchess of Cambridge, who captained the team at her high school, Marlborough College, took the field in a morale-boosting mission ahead of the July 27-Aug. 12 London games.
The duchess arrived at Olympic Park in heels, but quickly donned a gray sweatshirt over coral colored jeans. Though she expressed some concern the jeans would clash with the bright blue pitch, she grabbed a stick and took a few shots.
She told the crowd it’s been a while since she played.
She said “my brain thinks I can do all these wonderful things but my body just doesn’t play ball.”
Will Ferrell might as well have hosted with these two clowns as contestants. This is just embarrassing.
