Russia may have chosen not to publicize its hockey team’s loss to the USA on Saturday. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi has broadcasted the final scores of every match on its roof.
However, following Team USA’s victory the building’s exterior looked like this. No scores.
Hard to blame them. Who wants to promote a gut-wrenching defeat on home ice? I’d expect as much out of any host country. Just drink a ton of vodka and pretend the match never happened.
