A few interesting notes:
-Schedule makers gave everyone a break by only starting men's weekday games at 8:30. That means I can go home after work and have a nap before coming back to watch important matchups.
- Pretty much all big games are Friday and Saturday nights again. Don't mess with a winning formula.
- The last weekend of games will once again be the most intense.
- Games on Easter Sunday for the first time in tournament history. Also a couple big games on Good Friday.
- No more bronze medal game after the 2012 debacle.
- The break day is now between the quarters and semis instead of the semis and final. Not sure if it will make any kind of difference.

I have a tough time imagining the scenario that would make me want to attend that game. Scotland is always improving, but if I see even one Dijibouti game I'll be surprised

Hahahaha how is any Norway game an important date? Why don't you chalk up Greece v. Norway.

Playmaker said...

Because the game against Greece is guaranteed win night, just like every year.

you're a joke Braden. The game vs. Greece will be the most important of Norway because it will be the final nail in the coffin that keeps you out of the playoffs. Norway peaked what? 5 years ago? Little to no changes since aside from getting a little older each year. Even in pool D wouldn't be a guarantee to get a playoff spot for you guys.
