C’mon. Even Olympic Softball has had a mercy rule.
With more goals than minutes in the game, Slovakia’s women’s ice hockey team claimed an amazing 82-0 victory over Bulgaria in Olympic qualifying.
Slovakia outshot the Bulgarians 139-0 during the 60-minute game, played in Latvia. The margin of victory is a record for a women’s International Ice Hockey Federation-sanctioned event.
That’s just an old fashioned butt kicking if you ask me. The quote of the game comes from the coach though.
“We took it as training,” Slovakia coach Miroslav Karafiat said after Saturday’s game.
