Reality TV World Message Board Forums
PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Stanley Cup or Olympic Gold"
Saw an article pondering which means more.

History says that for long stretches making either the Canadian or Russian Olympic team gave one a good chance at the gold, as those countries won for long stretched. More recently the Americans, Swedes, Czechs and Finns are certainly contenders.

As an elite level player, making the national team is feasible, and thus being from the right country makes Gold more easily won than stanley Cup.

There have been many very elite players over the years in the NHL that haven't managed to get onto championship teams. Ditto in other professional sports.

As such, I would say that winning a professional championship in most sports is the pinnacle (despite what Lebron, Dwayne, and Chris are doing in the NBA right now). (go Mavs!)

Thoughts on which means more?
