Did You Know That...

The game of lacrosse originated with Native tribes in North America. Games would involve hundreds of players on each side and could last for several days.

Several important items were invented by Canadians: the zipper, Pablum, the paint roller and the snowmobile.

A man known as "Jackrabbit" Johannsen was one of the first Canadians to get fit; and, stay fit, through the sport of cross-country skiing. He lived to be 112; and, his real name was Herman Smith-Johannsen.
