South Park Meets Reality

I'm a big fan of the television show South Park. You might be too. Either way, there was an episode a year or two ago where one of the main characters, Stan, was put in charge of a pee-wee hockey team. We're talking like pre-K kids here.

Long story short, Stan's team gets to go to the Pepsi Center and play during intermission against another team. When their opponents don't show up, they have to play the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings win by thirty, beat up the kids and, in beautiful South Park fashion, relive the ending to the Mighty Ducks movie while 'We are the Champions' plays in the background.

Sometimes reality is a little closer than we imagine. In the real-life version, which you surely have heard about, the Bulgarian women's team ends up in a similar situation. No one gets trampled. No one plays Queen at the end. But someone still gets demolished on the scoreboard.

Today, via Mirtle via Puck Daddy, we've got video evidence of the Bulgarian women's team losing 82-0. Sometimes there's piling on and then sometimes there's... Well... This is piling on no matter how you slice it. But it still doesn't cease to amaze me.

Remember kids, practice makes perfect.

  2. Watching that clip was like watching a NHL video game played by someone who's playing for years against someone who doesn't even know what the buttons are. So the knowledgeable guy just skates circles around the other guy, who doesn't even know how to move his goalie to make a save.
