Draw Day seems like as good a time as any to get the Olympic (freak) show on the road! In spite of my crossed fingers, legs and eyes, the draw for the preliminary round saw Sweden sent to Coventry, which I suppose befits such a perpetually underperforming team. For about 5 minutes, I considered both the logistics and the relative attractiveness of Coventry as a city, then concluded that I'd be able to watch the matches on TV in Glasgow... Then I remembered that my home town is almost certain to be swarming with US supporters who'll rile the natives by ordering "Scotch" and calling the place "England". They'll recite the entire script of "Brigadoon" and talk about how much they liked that sculpture of Mel Gibson as "Braveheart" that they zoomed past on their four-hour guided coach tour of Scotland... As for the Germans... Oh, that's right . The full schedule, including venues, can be found here.
