  1. Last second goal Elite div here we come
  2. Ah I see, you know your french hockey history quite well . Yeah, the split was a blessing not in disguise. It was very much needed, and turn out to be very succesfull (note to any italian hockey fans reading that, do it, trus us for once, it does work). I'm usually very, very critical when it comes to how sports federations work in this country, but the FFHG has mostly been a very welcomed nice exception.
  3. I could ask any of my friend that currently lives in Paris and who are not into sports and I'm pretty certain they wouldn't know that the thing is coming in just a few weeks. I don't think the general audience will care, the small - but growing - hockey fan base will turn in, no doubt about that, the level of awareness among the general sport audience will grow a lot (myself included :p). But i think the general public will mostly don't bother. BTW, I still think the federation has done an goob job trying to promote the event to a more general audeince (considering its size and where the sport stands in the country at the moment), We had the Astérix thing, the temporary rinks thing at the eiffel tower and the Paris City Hall, they managed to reach a very large panel of national sport figures, etc. BUT, we are coming from a very long way (from pretty much nowhere actually). Babysteps. Being in full political campaign doesn't help either PS: 1-0 PS2: fuck.
  4. Merci
  5. If we win tonight in RT, we will be defintly be promoted which - I'm almost sure - will be the first time an Usomething french team will be paying in an elite division
  6. So much tension between the French and Russian team, you could feel it through the TV
  7. It's an american football ball...
  8. It basically never happens. Somme balls can be realy hard though (but there are many different kind of balls depending of the type of game). The ones playing with their bare hands with a very hard ball are the ones who suffer a lot. Still my favorute racquet sport and the most fun to play a friendly game IMHO. Can't wait to see the Slovaks make their debuts on world stage
  9. Maybe, that's just a (failed) scam Anyway, with you, that make 2 slovakains who would know what the sport is. I smell growth in the air.
  10. Wait... what ? Basque Pelota in Slovakia ?
  11. Meh... it's hardly a flawless map (see slovakia for a start) If you only count the "bums on seats" aspect of it , rugby is a more popular sport than soccer in SA. It might also be the case in Madagascar (yes, really).
  12. Rugby League.
  13. Freaking unbelievable. We won, leading the game for a grand total of 0.1 second.
  14. 0.1 second on a biathlon race
  15. Sounds perfect to my ears
