Dale Weise is of German decent.

Steve Pinizzotto's mom is German, though his father is suspected to be Italian.

Tom Sestito... well I choose to believe Tom Sestito is not full-blooded Italian. :drink:


Is it the Dude or Italy?


Why can you not believe he is a Guinea? A paisano? A worker on pavement or wop as they were known. He looks dumb enough to qualify.

The World Cup of Hockey was last won by.....Canada. :)

The Canadian mens team qualified for the FIFA World Cup only in 1996, but does have the same number of FIFA World Cup championships as.....Sweden.

A misconception
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wop
Wop
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wop is a pejorative racial slur used primarily, but not exclusively, to refer to people from Italy. It is also used to slur Italian-Americans, and it is similar to the word 'Wog', used in Australia.

It originated between 1910 and 1915 in the United States. One theory is that it stands for "without papers" (abbreviated WOP). According to Merriam-Webster its first known use was in 1908. The commonly accepted etymology is that it originates from a southern Italian dialect term guappo, meaning swagger, derived from the Spanish term guapo, via dialectical French, meaning ruffian or pimp. This also has roots in the Latin vappa, meaning wine gone flat. This theory holds that the term was brought to the U.S. by early Southern Italian immigrants from the region of Campania, who named those suspected to belonging to the Guapparia "Guappi", in a similar fashion Sicilian people used the term "Mafiosi". Widely used in Chicago where most immigrants from Campania settled, it was confused by non-Italian people to indicate Southern Italians in general, like the word "paesano".

As an aside, when I've been caught "without papers" the car lighter or a beer can have come in handy :mex:
Listen, don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right.

True, but Sweden has qualified to play in 12 of the 19 tournaments that have been held and has reached the semifinals four times (compared to just once for England) resulting in one silver (1958), two bronzes (1950, 1994) and one fourth place (1938).

There are actually only eight nations that have ever won the World Cup. :?
Brazil x5, Italy x4, Germany x3, Argentina x2, Uruguay x2, England, France and Spain.

The Canadian Men's team qualified for the Word Cup in 1986 not 1996 (there was no WC in 1996)... back when Bob Lenarduzzi was still playing. The team failed not only to win a game but also score a goal! I'm pretty sure we share that dubious honour with China.

It's embarrassing how bad our men's program is. I keep hearing stats about how more kids in Canada play soccer than hockey and yet there is no real development in place. I understand that we'll probably never win the World Cup but repeatedly failing to qualify out of arguably the easiest grouping in the world is pretty pathetic and an indictment on Canada Soccer Association.

Per, out of curiosity which is bigger in Sweden today, soccer or hockey? You seem to have had pretty big stars and success in both sports.

Kassian has been reminding me of a young Bertuzzi out there lately, I mean the Bert that showed flashes of what he could do in his first few seasons in Vancouver. Kassian plays harder in his own end though..... :P


I've been thinking the same thing the last few games, Meds. He reminds me a lot of Bertuzzi during his first season here (the one where he broke his leg I believe). My first impression was that we'd be lucky if this guy turned into a solid 2nd line winger, but I've got a feeling the kid's got potential to be a 30-40 goal plus first line winger. I'm not sure whether he'll ever reach Bertuzzi levels but I think there's a chance he'll become one of the dominant power forwards in the league.
