    What’s that lady in pic 2 making – cow pattie fuel pucks?

      That’s actually a very good guess. I was curious as to what her creations were, as well; so, I asked her. After a lot of hand gestures, fighting, and yelling at the refs, I learned that she’s actually making cow pattie HOCKEY pucks. The IHL (Indian hockey league, obviously) has a newly appointed Director of Sustainability. Under his jurisdiction, all game equipment is to be made entirely of sustainable materials. In addition to Pattie Pucks, they are using Sternum Sticks (hockey sticks made from the rib cages of rhinoceri), Head Helmets (players’ helmets are actually just hollowed out hippopotamus heads), and Skin Shinguards (triple-layered alligator skin is placed between the players’ socks and bare legs).

    Awesome to hear – I hate that the americans and, of course, those canadians, are so wasteful when it comes to their hockey. A travestry really. And you have to respect the players there, as those hippo helmts are indeed quite weighty. Thanks for the reply and education.
