WWIGPOTW is a look at the day’s Conference III games for III Communication readers from around the world. Today, we welcome our visitors from Costa Rica while noting that they are going to lose badly at soccer tonight.


Capitals at Jets, 6 PM Central (Capitales en Chorros, 5 PM)

Records: Capitals (13-16-1, 27 points, 4th in Southeast); Jets (16-13-2, 34 points, 1st in Southeast, 4th in Conference III)

Last Time They Met: Washington shut-out the Jets 4-0 in Manitoba yesterday in a game so nice we’ll play it dos veces.

Last 10: Washington 5-5-0; Winnipeg 6-3-1

Did You Know? San Jose is one of Latin America’s youngest national capitals. Despite what the final scene of Jurassic Park would have us believe, Costa Rica doesn’t have an air force; it’s military was abolished in 1948.

Keep An Ojo On: We have concerns about Blake Wheeler’s well-being because he didn’t score. Is it because he was doing some advanced Conference III scouting in Nashville?

What They’re Saying: Did you know that buying Duty Free in Costa Rica helps contribute to social programs to combat poverty? The Mixed Institute for Social Aid (IMAS) runs Duty Free stores here, which are located in both the Juan Santamaría International Airport, outside San José, and the Daniel Oduber International Airport, in Liberia, the capital of northwestern Guanacaste province. This year those stores unveiled a new sales slogan, called “Shopping with Social Responsibility.” — Airport duty free stores expanding from Tico Times.
