I'm waiting for another John Candy-esque movie ala 'Cool Runnings'
Really, it has that many teams?....hmm, I don't expect much from those nations seeing as they are not exactly in optimal hockey territory lol. You never know though
Yeah, you gotta' think the cost of maintaining an ice arena is going to be somewhat cost-prohibitive ... Qatar could afford it, but IDK about Jamaica, 'mon. I could see 'em following the 'Cool Runnings' strategy & doing roller hockey workouts, but that doesn't translate to the ice ... it'll be interesting for sure ... those two countries will enter the Federation and become 'spoilers' hoping to knock out one of the big boys now & again.
An example of not properly maintained:
Last year, we had all kinds of camps going on for sports (Slo, you know what I'm talking about)...and all the volleyball/cheerleading girls and families were in the stands to cool off. It was upwards of 90+ outside. Everyone kept proping the rink's doors open and not shuting them. Mostly on accident...couple that with someone (we think) hacking the server and shutting down one of the chillers, and we had very wet ice and a 68 degree rink. (Normal is 40-50 degrees air temperature)
