Yup, great little SUV that the wife loves. BMS Stage 1 tuned for her, and great in the snow. But the day I let a Dodge driver bug me about it is the day 'athlete' enters his repertoire (I.e. Never).

The entire premise is hilarious.
I have very much enjoyed the direction this thread has taken. I am very happy that you are also enjoying it.

We have to leave something for the little white guys/gals up North since we own football (not futbol), oh and soccer, basketball, baseball, and track & field. See you in 2016, or maybe not

That aside, both were great games.

Ok ok, I'll stop - I just wanted to see what it was like being an attention whore for a little bit...taking a walk in Sara somebody or other's shoes.

It was fun, but I'll stop the teasing now. And yes, I'm sure the summer Olympics will be a much better showing by the States.

I enjoyed your effort! Nothing wrong with stirring the pot every once in a while...

The USA has won over 100 more winter medals than Canada with the same amount of golds. The summer games are an embarrassment for our northern neighbors in comparison. The little puke jokke there is beating his scrawny little chest over this one win. More sad than anything really.

The NHL sells out more arenas than the NBA
Th NBA has 16 teams that fill their arenas to 90% or more
The NHL has 29 teams that do the same
Food for thought...

Not so sure about this, but it sounds good.

If you can't appreciate hockey, you can't appreciate a real sport.


Hell of a lot better than all those foot fairies running around a square field taking breaks after every play.....

Apparently people who don't watch hockey are also poor.

None of this matters because the NBA generates about $1.5 Billion more per year in revenue (or about 5x the total revenue of the Los Angeles Lakers or New York Knicks, the NBA's two most valuable teams).

Probably more than that when you focus on just U.S markets, when you consider 7 of the NHL teams are based in Canada, not the U.S.

Food for thought.

^I like this measure of Olympic glory. I'd like to see it based on dollars spent as well. Canada even beats the US in the summer Olympics per capita.

Nice find! But we both pale in comparison to Mongolia or the best, Grenada!
