Spoiler Alert, 'The World' Takes on Women's Hockey on 2-12-14

PRI's The World - with Host Marco Werman  

Blame Canada.

Well, not blame really. The Women's Olympic ice hockey competition heated up today in Sochi, with the Canadian women's team scoring a victory of their American counterparts. The two teams are, in many ways, more than mere rivals. The last couple of meetings have seen bench-clearing dust-ups between the two sides. We'll head north of the border to find out if Canadians are as passionate about their women's hockey as they are about the men's event.

Plus, Kayla Williams and Sergeant Brian McGough met, and fell in love, on a mountainside in Iraq. But then Brian suffered a traumatic brain injury, and a relationship forged in war was severely tested. Marco talks to both of them on the show today. Powerful stuff -- you won't want to miss it.

And our history guy, Chris Woolf, sticks his toe into the dangerous intersection of camel archaeology and Biblical chronology. Yep, it's as messy and as dangerous as it sounds.
