Ace up his Sleeve
Top painting by famed Montana artist Ace Powell, lower by his son David. Both inspired by a 20's era Great Northern Railway poster of Lake McDonald.

Since nobody provided us ideas for an American art website, this will have to do. Anyway, Team USA lost out to Miika Kiprusoff and his band of merry Finns last night. What if the Czechs pull off a big upset tonight, and we go into the medal round with two jet-lagged European teams playing in Toronto? Would be a fitting start to this year's apparent non-season.

Did you realize that 380,000 American households watched the big US-Russia tilt on ESPN2? While 2,000,000 watched "the World Series of Poker" on ESPN. Poker! Two Million! Sheesh.
