Czech-mate



I'll make it simple -- if you're favored to medal at the Olympics, YOU CANNOT LOSE TO SWITZERLAND (a noted bunch of chocolatiers and fondue-eaters.)

Really. Part of the rules. When you have international superstars like Jagr, Lang, Vokoun and so on, there are no excuses.

Two days into the men's hockey event at Turin have seen the biggest upset (Swiss top Czechs 3-2) and a near upset (U.S. rallied for 3-3 tie with Latvia). While Canada is still far and away the team to beat for gold, it will be interesting to see who moves on to the medal round.

The Swiss also make a handy pocket knife. Now with a memory stick! 'Cause you might need that when you're backpacking...with your computer. ?!?
