Does Austria/Australia also confuse you?

I'm a geography enthusiast but two things that I often get mixed up are Czech/Slovakia (Czechoslovakia) and Serbia/Montenegro (Serbia and Montenegro). All four of those countries are now independent. Of course, Slovenia being part of the old Yugoslavia doesn't help and the fact that their flags all have red, white, and blue with the exception of the flag of Montenegro can get things confusing. One thing that helps, though, is that people from Slovakia and the Czech Republic don't have last names that end with "vic". Could be wrong, though. Also, the Yugoslavia region produces NBA players while Czech Republic and Slovakia produce NHL players.

Like we haven't heard that before. It's frustrating, but we are used to it.

Honestly, in my oppinion in that case Kopi would go the same route. Once few years ago he said in one interview that he has two big dreams: winning Stanley Cup and playing for Slovenia on Olimpic Games. And that he believe second one is probably really just a dream...

I believe no logos, just a flag or a coat and no commercials on jersey.

It ****ing sucks. Our current jerseys (see my avatar) are very nice (the lynx looks awesome), but why can you do? The new ones are not even close as being good looking. Just boring.

I'm not a fan of it either. But, I will probably be buying one just to have. Very very awesome. Can't wait!

If I remember right, no national sports federations logos can be used on the jerseys at the Olympics. This is why Canada wore the different emblem on their jerseys in Vancouver. I believe they changed this rule right before the 2008 Beijing Summer Games. I remember this as Canada's baseball team had to remove a baseball from their hats and simply wear the C of the logo to comply.

I'm not entirely sure why the IOC decided this was the rule. I can't see any sports federation putting a logo on their uniforms that is offensive or anything. The only thing I can figure is that the IOC did this so that the NOCs could profit from the sales of merchandise as I assume basketball and hockey are the two sports that actually sell a decent number of merchandise from the national Olympic teams. I'm assuming soccer does not, most of their national team merchandise is from the World Cup and Continental tournaments.

To be honest I have always feelt that Slovenias jerseys in all sports have been really well designed and they always come out pretty cool and good looking.

So I think they will get our players be good looking again. . Is this the final version?

Not true. Though not as common as in the South Slavic nations, in Slovakia names that end in "vic" are hardly an uncommon occurence (such as Mlynarovič, Markovič, Mikušovič, Gašparovič - that´s just the names of a few Slovak hockey players playing in the Slovak league).

What about California having 2 cities: Claremont and Clairemont?

And in Orange County there are 2 Chapman offramps on the 57 about 4 miles apart.
