I don't know what ticket sales have been like for women's hockey, but the fact that there are only two countries that are any good at it and strong evidence that no others are going to challenge them any time soon is far more important.

Is anyone watching the Sept. 11 fluff piece on right now? It's actually quite good.

Apparently we have locked up the top gold spot too! Only Germany can tie us now. A couple more and we'll have the gold medal record

I mention tickets mainly because if the 2010 Winter Games were held outside of North America would the IOC have dropped Women's Hockey after Torino?
I don't know for certain that it'll be dropped, but it seems more and more likely.

Also, I'm curious about what percentage of revenue the IOC derives from ticket sales.

It would have been nicer if they had run it commercial free.

Thank you again to Canada for the help on Sept. 11, 2001. I was stuck in Sydney, Australia.

Yeah, if Martin wins gold for curling and we beat the U.S. in hockey tomorrow, it'll be the most gold medals ever won by a country
