Ugh. Another repeat about twins born minutes apart suing for citizenship?

They are both technically playing, but is it really "competing" for South Korea?

They have the Best players on Unified Korea.

True, they are averaging giving up less than 3 goals per period.

Now if they could score a goal...

It must be a real treat for SK to get a Minnesota raised hockey player.  I'm surprised they didn't make her a player/coach.

I wonder if the North Korean players are allowed to interact with her. Or how they view her.

I wonder what the North Korean press is allowed to report after these two losses.

I haven't seen any footage of how they play, but I have a feeling they struggle from not knowing how to play together.  They likely have a hard time understanding how to play with an American in relatively short time.  NK players are probably shocked she's well fed.

Blamed the American.  "Oh look, she passed the puck to our female warrior too hard.  She has no soft finesse.  She skates way too fast, not waiting for Best Korean players."

If a goal is waved off and is later ruled a goal but they score again in the meantime, would they get double points?

This thread is confusing me. It's a cool story though. Saw the NBC 5 minute highlight on them. Now watching a rerun of the woman's half-pipe. Damn that Kim girl really threw it down on her "victory run".

And the men's qualifying had the announcers making penis jokes. Jesus what a clusterfark.

My Northeastern Huskies finally won the Beanpot after 30 years, and 4 years of futility on my part.

So happy. Don't care.

Welcome to snowboarding.  Who knew a sport founded out of skateboarding and surfing would be so ill-refined.

I'l be honest, when I first saw their picture I envisioned their father being in the US military stationed in SK at one point. The adoption thing didn' t cross my mind.

Pretty neat that this puts NK and American players on the same team.

It's discouraged these days, but some people do play for love of the game alone.

No. Anything that happened after the first goal is wiped out and the clock reset.

Gotta say, I kinda like the beer league-iness of the OAR sweaters.

Nothing new. In this game in the EURO 2016 Granit Xhaka and Taulant Xhaka played for Switzerland and Albania respectively and they are full brothers, not half or adopted or anything.

The obvious autocorrect aside, wtf is going on with the Olympic rings in that one?  Or is that supposed to be another symbol of some kind?

They probably point whisper about her behind her back.

One of the rings was dropped for doping.

The Boateng half-brothers played for different nations in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. One played with Germany, the other with Ghana. Then the same thing happened again in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
 
2018-02-13 02:23:55 PM  
oh, and Ghana and Germany happened to meet in both tournaments.
