Dick's or Modell's? Everyone probably has their favorite sporting goods store, but the real dilemma isn't choosing one. It's making your way through the store! With the countless items in these stores, it's easy to get lost and distracted. 95% of people can't name all of these things in a sporting goods store. Can you?

When you go to a sporting goods store, you most likely have a purpose in mind. Maybe you just picked up soccer and need new cleats. You might've joined the softball team, so a new mitt is on your list of items to buy. Do you have a fishing trip planned? Do you need a new rod or reel?

While all of these stores are split into departments, you're probably still getting lost within them. With boxing, cricket, field hockey and hunting & shooting, you can be sure that there's some equipment in there that you've never seen. 

Can you tell the difference between a hockey and cricket helmet? Could you identify the tree stands needed for hunting? Can you pick out knee pads versus elbow pads? These are common items that you'd find in every sporting goods store. Just because you've been to Modell's hundreds of times doesn't mean you could identify every item in there. 95% of people can't ace this quiz. Can you?

You might be walking into this quiz looking for a volleyball, but you might come out of it with a perfect score! Let's see if you can do it.
