Today is Women's Handball Champions League Final. In Romania the women's handball is one of the most loved sport so it will be a big event today.
CSM Bucharest will face Hungarian hosts' favorite team Gyor, which defeated in the first semi-final Buducnost Podgorica 21-20. The Romanian team has qualified to the final on Saturday evening after a victory in the semi-finals against Vardar Skopje 27-21 in Budapest, in the final four tournament.

Odds at Unibet: CSM Bucharest 4.90
Draw: 10.00
Gyor: 1.29

LOL ... my rule of thumb is the more dancing girls, mascots in animal suits, music and bands at half time etc etc etc, the more the sport is compensating for not being entertaining enough. Basketball scores pretty highly on all those factors!

Never thought of it in this aspect but that's a good point there Ed ..and I guess there's a a lot of sense in it.

Don't worry Dustin, the Kings are almost as sloppy as the Red Wings this season and I still use to see every game...don't know why really...maybe I'm a masochist?!? Joking

Just to correct my self ...Kings are in fact the sloppier team...in fact the worst playing team in the league right now...well they could still hope of the N1 pick at the next draft..holding on to two first round choises..I heard the N1 guy is a wonder kid or something...one in a generation.

The Giro takes place now and finally it's time for the mountain stages..I think the next few days would be quite frantic...any time for that these days Ed?

I assume if the race it's even half as dramatic as the last year it would still be great one.

Roglic looks really great but his team looked poor even in the first mountain stage so that could be a big problem for him..have to be an exiting race anyway.

The Ice Hockey World Cup had just been over with quite an unlikely winners - the Finns, they've beat Sweden at the quarters, Russia at the semis and Canada at the final ( commiserations to
WaroftheGods, in case you've ever check this thread man), and that's all the winners of the last 7 world championships.

The Finns have been brilliant and won that deservedly IMHO, they've had just a 2 NHL players on their roster and there's been a joke around Finish fans of how poor of a team they could give to the coach Jalonen and he 'd still make a contenders of them.

Surely one of the unlikeliest winners ever in the IHWC's history.

I saw the news of the Finns winning. I don't know much about ice hockey but in my naivety I thought they had a strong team. I haven't seen any of the Giro this year though, how has it been?

The Finns have a huge traditions and a lot of first class NHL-ers but having in mind the team they've put on this WC it was a major upset, someone said the second biggest ever after Slovakia winning it in 2002 after being just for 6 years in the top division, it's a subject comparison but I'm tend to agree it's one of the huge upsets in the WC's history.

As for the Giro I don't think the race has been so dramatic and entertaining as the last year's one..well at least for me.

Not so expecting winner in Carapaz but after Dumoulin left out early injured, S.Yates nowhere near his top form(biggest disappointment for me), Nibali not as good as before also, Roglic struggled in 2nd and 3rd week after not so scary looking crash...and in the end it was obvious Movistar has been by far the strongest team which helps their leader big time, especially Landa.

It's been a good race but I've had really expected something more after last year's thriller, hopefully the Tour would be even better one.
