Randy Shannon would be pissed

Fun story out of Europe.

Slovakia and Bulgaria played some women's hockey, which, in itself, is a bit humorous, and Slovakia won 82-0, which is more humorous.

(Man, we would plow the shit out of appositives).

But yeah, 82-0. Jeez.
With more goals than minutes in the game, Slovakia's women's ice hockey team claimed an amazing 82-0 victory over Bulgaria in Olympic qualifying.

Slovakia outshot the Bulgarians 139-0 during the 60-minute game, played in Latvia. The margin of victory is a record for a women's International Ice Hockey Federation-sanctioned event.

Janka Culikova led Slovakia with 10 goals, while Martina Velickova scored nine. Fourteen different players scored at least one goal.
When it comes to Olympic qualifying, you can't mess around -- margin of victory is huge. Just ask The U's Randy Shannon.
