      Slovaks shut out Latvia, setting up a big NYE game against the Swiss where the "USA!" types will be rooting against us. Meanwhile, if the Czechs can beat Germany, that forces me to root against the Swedes. If the Slovaks can beat the Swiss, I will be rooting for heart disease and fighter jets.

      Code:
      8 SWE can
      7 CZE ger
      6 CAN swe
      0 GER cze
      0 AUT ger
      
      7 FIN usa
      6 SVK sui
      6 USA fin
      4 SUI skv
      1 LAT
      Order of games:

      12/30
      GER-AUT

      12/31
      SVK-SUI
      CZE-GER
      USA-FIN
      CAN-SWE

              Ef no, they* are occupiers. Political boundaries mean nothing. The blood is the life, Mister Renfield. The tribal spirit of subliterate, root-eating, unhygenic dirt-farmers pounds in my Slavic veins. For mother, God, and soil, and no mercy to you heathen swine.

                “Political boundaries mean nothing” says the guy trying to justify rooting for country that is literally just a political boundary arbitrarily carved out of another political boundary that was arbitrarily carved out of another political boundary (that arbitrarily carved out itself).

                  No, no, no; the political unit is nothing. The People is everything.

                  Insofar as Slovakia is a government and a set of institutions, it's just another player in the War of All Against All at the nation state level. It could be Russia or the US or Burkina Faso. They are all fungibles.

                  Insofar as Slovakia is "the land of the Slovaks," it's a referent to a clan of sloping-foreheaded white trash back to which I can trace 25% of my DNA. That is what is sacred.

                  The reason I don't root for the USA is it is only a political entity. The class of people who are Americans is the global population who believe in the single foundational truth of America, the only statement in any formal document that has value:

                  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
                  That's America, and no country points to it. Only people point to it, wherever they happen to be. There is no American ethnicity -- that's what the traitors will never understand. They think they are Americans because they were born here, but they aren't, because the American people is a matter of mind, not blood.

                  If there was a hockey team that represented the American people I'd root for it, but there cannot be because America isn't a nation state. It's the "last, greatest hope of mankind." The closest there is to an American hockey team is the Left.

                    “Slovak people” is just a political construct no different than “American”. It’s an 18th century justification for “my people are different and special than yours”.

                    It’d be easier to just say “I’m being an edgy doosh”.

                      This is your go to insult, and indicates you think other people are performing for (or against) you. That isn't what this place is. I can assure you, nobody cares about your reaction to their statements. Please stop embarrassing yourself and just enjoy what you enjoy. Relax. Chill.

                        It's actually worse than that. Slovak self-identity didn't start until the 19th century, which is really late. But, to be fair to My People, the language is about 1500 years old. Language is an important part of identity. But it didn't become important to Slovak-speakers until the Hungarians began forcing a policy of Magyarization on their children. At that point they felt they were losing something valuable (and it was accompanied by other forms of economic and political persecution) and that made them start to coalesce into a social unity.

                                Denmark has been in it before. I got to see some of their exhibition games in Rochester before the last Buffalo tournament.

                                I wonder what’s going to happen when Russia and Belarus are allowed back in? That will happen eventually.
