Johan Esk: In sport does size not matter for the emotions

They call it the World Series, and we on this side of the Atlantic is smiling about it.

the American final. In baseball. The World Series...

Well, we call the championship, with the skis under your feet to drag the running for the world championship. Alpine world CHAMPIONSHIPS, the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in nordic skiing (cross-country world CHAMPIONSHIPS for the us) and the last biathlon world CUP.

for the small, little corner of the sports world that cares about skiing. In this little corner we will in the next few weeks to febra for things like:

• Ebba Andersson we used away and RESIGN ALL!

• * Sweden takes a längdmedalj on the men's side – IS THAT TRUE?

• Hanna Öberg shoot full – KÖÖÖR NOW!!

And at the same time, it will in many other places in the world of sport to excite just as much to people, events, and sports we swedes barely have a clue about.

plays no role in the passion it can arouse. The sport is more myopic than logical when it comes to what creates interest and hot emotions. The local can knock out the global. Locally grown can taste much more than it is so huge, much bigger out there in the world.

How else would we be able to be so many who yearn to be united states kicks off when it basically every day can easily go to see the football, which is better?

History, culture and tradition are crucial to what makes a idrottshändelse to be great. In Sweden, it was noticeable most in the cross-country skiing.

When I worked at Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå, I was in the beginning surprised when I browsed to the country's local papers. I had sent out a text about cross-country skiing came in. It played no role on the editorial offices were in the north or south.

much greater in the past. It was really small on the Sixten Jernbergs time and Gunde Tail international celebrity status was one per mill of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

skiing has become hotter in Sweden in the past decade, there is a part of the history, culture and tradition. Even more on the Vinterstudion and the focus that it has been in the sport there.

the Question is whether it holds in itself. It can instead be the case that the tv images harms the interest of the längdskidåkningen.

the Sport may have its strong grip on the Swedish idrottssjälen with their new and old heroes and heroines and I will always go running on the fight between the riders in a slakmota. But if you want to bring in new viewers is broadcasting it from Otepää devastating.

I went there it was even smaller audience than it had been in Dresden the weekend before. It was embarrassing fate in the stands that appeared behind the backs of Pops and Ojala.

In the tävlingsorten echoed bad home to the Swedish tv-sofas. When it came to pictures from the biathlon, there was a mood of adventure and drama that spread from Ruhpolding.

It was one of two weekends in January as a skidskyttetävlingarna, according to Expressen, had more viewers than längdåkningens world cup. It will be exciting to see Vinterstudions priority next season.

the world CUP-weeks hold on to the middle of march and this is the strongest guldkandidaterna:

It is more surprising if Johaug not travel from Seefeld with four world CHAMPIONSHIP gold medals than that she is doing it.

The normale utförsåkaren is on the mountain for a visit. It is the track and the mountain, which takes the rider.

Marcel Hirscher is a unique rider. When he gets to a year it looks like the mountain is created and the path is set only for that he should be able to dominate there. Then he can combine speed and control so that no one else has a chance.

Hirscher is on its way to becoming the best male alpine skiers...

...and Shiffrin has all the potential to become the best female utförsåkaren in the story.

When Shiffrin is in the form she is better than all the other to get to the difficult art of putting the pressure on the skis just moderately hard. And she gets it, then, to see so easy to ski fast.

to skidskyttets new dominant not to win is required he booms. Not a shot, it is too little. Sometimes that is not enough even two misses for the Norwegian will miss the victory. So fast has he gone in the winter.

Marit Björgen has stopped. Heidi Weng is not what she had been. It will not prevent Norway from taking the fifth straight world CHAMPIONSHIPS gold medal.

finally: In anticipation of the world CUP-weeks, Sweden has been looking for its 13th gold medal in the bandy. I still remember the way towards the first.

in 1981. We sat around a radio in the Tullingebergsskolan and listened to when Michael Carlsson pounded into goals in Khabarovsk. We looked at the map, it was low. It was far away.

Sweden won the first match against the Soviet union, lost the second, but won the gold. It had never happened. It felt great despite the fact that we all knew how small the bandyvärlden was.

finally 2: On the night train to Åre, I will if the connection able to see Tom Brady try to take their sixth Super Bowl title.

the Most I will look at whether the Los Angeles Rams defense can stop the New England Patriots and Julian Edelman.

Edelman was in the beginning of the season off to have taken performance enhancers. The punishment has not stopped him, just as little as a shutdown cracked Therese Johaug.
