I think the big issue is that it is in Korea. If it was in Canada again during the hockey season, I am sure they would join.

Still Germany typically does really well in the winter olympics regardless, so it isn't too big of a surprise.

Last time they got a medal was 1976....my year of birth. 

While true, if the competition is fierce it doesn't necessarily mean they are bad. It's hard enough to qualify as is.

I guess you are referring to the players part, since no other event is bigger than the football WC and no other sports WC is bigger than the olympics 

The Olympics as a whole, sure. But a whole load of sports World Cup's are bigger than their Olympic event.

Well yeah, during their own WCs they generally don't have to compete with huge international events from basically every other winter sport.

They better not win the finals because I want that first place in the medal table.

That's a Canadian website.

Edit: I saw the tweet. I don't know why.

! That's a good question, since it's addressing fellow Germans. Perhaps the person who wrote it was raised in North America.

Well, considering the team Canada had these Olympics, a podium finish is a great outcome. We beat the Czech's for bronze, so it's not all doom and gloom.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

ugh so close, but congratz to the first place.

 

 

I blame Felix Loch who threw away his gold medal in the last race.

Haha that was kind of hilarious . German newspapers were showing some very rude and angry headlines from Canadian newspapers and Germans visiting Canada were officially advices not to mention the subject of Ice Hockey while visiting for their own safety 😂
