    Norway beat Kazakhstan to get bumped up. They had the same record in that division and if the Kazakhs had won they’d be in instead. I’d like to see France get in someday too, although I know it’s pretty unlikely. Just fun to see the jerseys with a big ol chicken on them.

      Fun fact that is relevant to our earlier topic. That big ol chicken (the Gallic Rooster) is the symbol of the French People,



      while Marianne (the chick who always has her boobs out) is the symbol of the French principles (liberty, equality, brotherhood).

        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:



        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.

        All this over 25%?

        And doesn’t this grand nation-state vision fall apart when you have countries who allow immigration? Unless you really love places with racist policies like Hungary, the natural conclusion is going to be teams that look like England or Holland or the US than teams where everyone has the same name structure.

          What a terrific game between Slovakia and Switzerland. Loving the parity this year in the tournament.

            Well, you know, it's what I've got, man. Among my F4 (SVK, CZE, ITA, NOR) it's the one that needs the biggest push.

            We are not a particularly distinguished people. I'm fairly certain I am among the most accomplished 10k Slovaks who have ever lived, and I have done nothing.

              The Czechs have decided to stop farting around. This game is 6-1 halfway through and could be 12-2.

              Only 5 of the 22 players in the Czech lineup play in their domestic league, which is a true good news / bad news story.

                      Czechs tie it near the end, win with 50 seconds left in OT.

                            Just wouldn’t be a WJC game against Canada without getting completely screwed.
