Ice Skating for the Middle East

Why don't we look for more civilized ways to dialogue across cultures, like encouraging people to go beyond soccer, arguably the most popular because it's cheap, just grab your sneakers, hey go barefeet if you don't have enough for food, but why not set up funding for these poor kids who are obviously talented if not by virtue of skill at least so by heart. Drive could kick another notch into Gretzkying, who'll fence in an acre of land in Lahore and teach those kids to skate?

I'd love to have an All-Asian League someday, and we could sure use some Russian coaches.  Any out-of-work former Olympic athletes need a vacation in the subcontinent?
