The Daily Hilario: Olympics, day 6 and not much else

Jack Gruber-USA TODAY Sports

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Welcome to the new tradition.

The Czechs eventually made a decent show of themselves against one of the big favorites Sweden on the first day of men's ice hockey at the Olympics. Halfway through the game, they already trailed 4-0 and things were looking grim. While they only brought it back to 4-2, their second and third period performance is certainly something to build from. Meanwhile, today, the big game is USA vs. Slovakia. Having lived in both countries, I'm like a house divided. Not even, mind - it's like 90% for Slovakia. COME ON HAPPY HOSSA DAY!
