The Origin of Hacky

This was in my local paper:

'In 1972 in Oregon City, Oregon, John Stallberger was recovering from knee surgery and looking for some good rehab exercise. His friend Mike Marshall made a small beanbag, which they started kicking around to keep it from touching the ground. They dubbed the game "Hackin' the Sack" and finally "Hacky Sack." A sport was born.'
