My point still stands then, particularly in Canada.

If your NHL hockey team is still playing and in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and team Canada is playing for Hockey Gold.... the overwhelming majority of people will watch their NHL team.

So it's safe to say that the Stanley Cup is more important to Canadians. Now obviously if their team isn't in one of those two championships, they may watch the other one, but when head to head, they'll watch their team in the Stanley Cup.

Now where is my Slovak friend... I've decided to start up the World Championships of Football in the parking lot at work. So far none of the other countries have shown up so I'm going to go score a goal and declare myself the winner. And since I'm Canadian, I guess Canada will be the World Football Champions...

The game will begin in about 5 minutes.

.... seems about as legit as the World Hockey Championships that are on during the Playoffs that REALLY count.
