Check out this and other pix of Canada from the Japan game. The players are all wearing yarn bracelets on the wrists. I heard the story from Charmaine Hooper. After the first two games the team had several meetings. At one they took a whole ball of yarn and unwound it so that all players were connected by it. The players then cut their segments of the skein and made bracelets so that they maintained their connection to their teammates. I have made dozens, if not hundreds of kids take off (or cut) these things because of rigid rules that stipulate "No jewelry" and classify these things as jewelry. Maybe I have to rethink my position.
