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
So no we're switching the discussion from international hockey events to comparing the WBC to the whole Olympics? Ok....
