Is it just me or does that arena look like a contraceptive diaphragm?

Is it just me or is this the WGAF story of the year?

No, wait, it's the new pope story.

But this has to be #2.

You expect clearance to discuss soccer on these threads and we can't discuss Olympic hockey?

Thank you for the blessing. And I GAF. I've enjoyed Olympic hockey with the pros. Having all the best players on the planet playing for their country is awesome.

And you arecertainly big on jokes, and there is no bigger joke than Limpic hockey so it has a certain symmetry.

Something with a purpose.

I'm guessing you don't need to rent a very large hall for anti-Olympic hockey meetings.

I'm guessing that I probably wouldn't bother.

I'm also not guessing that I'm not alone here in the anti pro faction.

Line em all up in September for a tournament and let em rip and I might be watching.

At least it wouldn't drag an already endless season out forever....

Perhaps they could hold the Winter Olympics in August to make you happy.

Lemieux potting the winner in 1987? Orr on 1 leg in 1976? Henderson in 1972?

If not you are easily chilled.

Like I've said many times and maybe you've missed it, I have nothing against the Limpics, just the pro hockey players being there. I quite like the speed skating and curling.

Don't half mind bobsledding either.
