Lucky Bastards in Torino

Boris, Kris and Robert are living it up in Torino. Among other things, they’re running this symposium thingy on Olympics and Web 2.0. They invited me along, but I couldn’t make it.

Now I’m regretting that decision a little, because I see that they’re sitting in the stands watching Team Canada play Germany in men’s hockey. Kris and Robert, of course, are taking tons of photos. I they get to the gold medal hockey game, I’m going to have to beat them to death with a goalie stick upon their return.

    I don’t follow Ice Hockey, but I caught a fair sized chunk of the Canada Germany game earlier.

    Lets not lie here, in my terms its like making the Brazilian football team play in the 3 division of English football. They made Germany look like a bunch of school kids. There isn’t from watching that, anyway you aren’t going to win the competition…

    *Unless as I suspect USA and Russia may be competent at the sport too?*

    Chris: At the moment, there are really seven relatively comparably ice hockey nations:

    Russia
    USA
    Canada
    Czech Republic
    Finland
    Sweden
    Slovakia

    They tend to want 10 teams for a tournament, so teams #8 – 10 tend to get slaughtered. That said, yesterday Latvia did tie the US, and today I understand that the Swiss actually beat the Czechs. So, maybe there’s more parity than we think.
