Determining the type of player that participates in a World Championship intrigues me. This article examines the players who made up season 4’s World Championship Game for handball. Coming up on the start of a new season of handball, it seemed intriguing to review players from last season’s World Championship game.

English So That Every Underdog Can Have Its Day
Maybe it's me but isn't it a little strange that Europe generally favours parity in the form of socialism for its people, but not its sports leagues while North America generally supports franchise parity for its sports leagues but skimps on the same form of socialism for its people? What's up with that? Read the article
