Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1
One of the biggest sports icons in Denmark - besides Caro - is our national men's handball team. While Caro was doing great at AO, the handball team was doing lousy at Euro Cup, losing their first two matches despite being one of the favorites. But now that Caro's lost, the handball team has completed an amazing comeback and qualified for SF against overwhelming odds (besides Denmark winning their last matches, a number of other matches had to turn out just right also)! Cosmic balance?
Here's an example of the kind of luck the Danish handball team needed to qualify: Opponent is Macedonia, Denmark MUST win. The score is 32-32, 9 seconds remaning. Macedonia has the ball (Denmark in red).
