Dodgeball:

Dodgeball is an American-invented sport, mainly played in elementary schools. It was invented in 1922, and was, until recently always considered to be a children's schoolyard sport.
It is played with one or more rubber balls (traditionally red), and the idea of the game is to eliminate everyone else, by hitting them with the ball. Generally it is unnaceptable to hit above the shoulders.

Recently dodgeball has endured a re-awakening, due to the movie "Dodgeball: An Underdog Story".
The movie is a comedy starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.

Here is a clip from the movie. The following clip is fictional and does not represent the views of any of the members of Glengarrypedia.

The 1967 International and Universal Exposition is the proper name but for short it is expo 67. It was a worldwide fair held in Montreal Canada in 1967. This is where 67 came from. This idea was first given to Event_expo_67_poster_1990-552-1.jpgToronto but the mayor refused. When it was offered to Montreal the mayor Sarto Fournier quickly accepted. The first day of the fair it was estimated that 120,000 people would come but they were in for a surprise, more than 300,000 people arrived.

The logo was designed by Montreal artist Julien Hébert. If you look at the circle it represents friendship it looks like a couple of people in a circle holding hands.By: Jai Sadhwani
