Word on the Street

Viking Game (vahy-king geym) noun. A Scandinavian version of the basketball game played on snow/and-or ice.

Usage example: I guess the Toronto Raptors are used to playing viking games up in Canada.

Word history: Another Silent Assassin original. Coined in the harsch winter of Sweden when a group of ballers couldn’t find a gym to play in. The group still wanted to play, and therfor went outside in the snow. The viking game is intended for the die hard players that just want to shoot. There is no/or very little dribbling involved, just passing and scoring. The hands and feet goes numb, and you can’t feel your face, still …you gotta love this game.

Can’t …feel …my …hands, have …to …shoot!

I guess snow ain’t all that bad!
