Women's Hockey Will Return for 2014 Games

Despite concern that Women's Olympic Ice Hockey is dominated by Canada and the United States it looks like the sport will return for the 2014 Sochi Games. Apparently the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is worried about some of the scores from the Vancouver a 18 - 0 beat down of Slovakia by Canada.

For the Hat Trick it's alarming to hear that the IOC is willing to consider eliminating a sport simply because some countries aren't as successful in the sport. Got to love the mantra of "making it fair for everyone" and punishing those athletes who are successful in their given sport. Wonderful. How about this idea: Get Better? If we have learned anything about the Olympics it should have been in 1980 when the U.S. men's team beat the Soviet Union in their run for the Gold Medal.

Obviously some sense of sanity is still with the IOC and women's ice hockey will return.
