    World Juniors Hockey Tournament.

    I don't know if Dawlin still reads Graffe's, but to him and any other Danes out there, um, sorry. That game was one bucket of confetti shy of being a Globetrotters game, and the proof was stuff like this:

    The Swiss coach has already come out and said to the media that his team is going to be pancaked by the Canadians. That can't be a good feeling as a coach.

    If you're not on the Canadian, Swedish, American, Russian or Finnish teams, you have almost no chance at a podium placing at the World Juniors:

    You might not medal, but you can always upset one of the stronger teams, or at least make a strong showing. This was not that.

    And speaking of upsets: the Swiss beat Sweden and Finland beat Canada today in the quarter finals. My buddy's semi-finals "Canada vs. Sweden" tickets are now Switzerland vs. Finland tickets.

    I did say "almost no chance."
