So then the World Championships are obviously enough, and a World Cup would be pointless. Thanks.
Also, 20 Million people watched a round robin game from Vancouver in CHINA. (Not a lot of people in China, sure, but China isn't anywhere close to being a hockey country so it shows the global reach of the Olympics)
The idea that the WBC gets more global attention than the Olympic machine is just ridiculous. We're talking baseball, which is barely noticeable internationally v.s. the second most influential sporting organization in the world after FIFA probably
