Italy now holds the Unofficial Men's International Ice Hockey Championship Belt.

(and in case anyone noticed, France is a lot tougher than people gave them credit.)

Italy faces Denmark next, and if the Danes win, they will hold the belt for the first time ever.

If their jerseys have a stylized dragon on them, even better.

The Belgian slogan caught my eye: Expect the Impossible. Made me immediately think of Eben Emael.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian slogan reminded me of the old well-worn joke about Scottish foreplay.
