He had come to Canada during his early teen-age years from the Middle East. He had suspect tastes with American Idol being his favourite show. But he had never heard about Winter Olympics till he came to Canada. He also never heard about Seinfeld. Yup, I'm not surprised. The Winter Olympics gets almost no coverage in countries with a warmer climate, that don't really participate in the Winter Olympics. The irony is, even in countries that participate heavily in the Winter Olympics, their #1 sport is still soccer. For example, Sweden and the Czech Republic are top hockey countries, and they are often major obstacles for Team Canada at the Winter Olympics. However, even though Sweden and the Czech Republic produce some of the best hockey players in the world, and they are top contenders for the gold medal at the Winter Olympics, soccer is still the #1 sport in Sweden and the Czech Republic. If you ask the average Swede or average Czech whether they would prefer to win the Olympic gold medal in hockey, or win the World Cup, the average Swede or average Czech will choose the World Cup over gold in Winter Olympic hockey.
