In the midst of my fear that Lance Armstrong’s return to competitive cycling would spark another Favre like tempest of discussion, speculation, and ridiculousness, I came across this story just solid enough to soothe my concerns.
Over the weekend, the Bulgarian women’s hockey got served 82-0 in a 2010 Winter Olympics women’s ice hockey qualifier match against Slovakia.
I know, three questions ensue:
1) Why are qualifiers for the 2010 Olympics being played already?
2) Was there not a big Bulgarian chick anywhere in the house that they could have sat in goal?
3) Drug test please?
Here’s the hilarious score by period: 1st Period – 31-0; 2nd Period – 55-0; 3rd Period – 82-0.
I have to admit that I wish the NHL would look into what contributed to Slovakia’s success. A little more offense could only help Commissioner Gary Bettman’s league.
If you were Slovakian, was there ever a good time to head to the bathroom? With scoring at that level, I wonder if any goals were scored between periods from the locker room?
