I predicted a good fate for Murdoch in the Olympics, and against my principles.
My principles look pretty good now, as neither
The women's team does not even make the playoffs, and the much-vaunted men's team seems now on the verge of losing a tiebreaker, and thus will not make the playoffs.
Bureaucratic meddling with team formation is not so likely to produce good results. I feel good about that principle, and wish I had believed in it more when making my predictions. (BTW I do not know whether all the other countries are actually bureaucratically selected all-star teams - I know only that Canada's team is not.)
And we're only at five ends in.
