    Iceland government could fall this weekend

    I remember watching relatively peaceful weekend protests last year. Now it seems they're going at every day and they're not being so nice about it anymore.

    That government needs to have Conan O'Brien visit. Worked for Finland.

    Read about this in Fortune a couple months ago. Apparently, the country's banks overextended themselves big time during the financial boom. This not only hurt Iceland, but many foreign investors as well.

    Didn't the same thing kind of happen here in November?

    Not good - Iceland economy tied closely to UK.

    Wow. For some reason never really thought of Iceland as part of Europe. Have to say it makes sense, but I never really put two-and-two together before now.

    I believe Iceland's dominance as a world power all started to crumble when Emilio Estevez -- aka Gordon Bombay -- and Team USA beat Team Iceland for hockey gold at the 1994 Junior Goodwill Games. It's been all down hill since then. That damn knuckle puck!

    He should have known they'd be prepared for the triple deke.
