The radio was on this morning as I prepared for lift-off. "Germany has never won an Olympic (ice hockey) game against Canada."
What does a cynic with a disposable razor do? He says: "Oh, no."
The radio, later: "Germany is ahead four to one after two periods."
Just when I forgot the game was being played: "A shocking loss!"
Germany is not some country foreign to the exciting game of ice hockey. It's long been played there. "Eishockey."
Here come the Germans!
