Rob Schremp... Belgium on Skates

I will begin as the greatest of hockey bloggers likes to begin...

"This is Rob Schremp."

Like Belgium, he exists. And also like Belgium, he seems to be talked about most when people are debating whether he is worthy of being talked about. It's all very meta.

So perhaps the best way to introduce this whole topic (to the six or seven people who are likely to actually read it, and the one or two are are likely still reading it, is to do a line by line Schremp/Belgium comparison, and see who comes out on top.

(Sorry for the formatting, I don't use Blogger a lot and have real work to do)

Belgium Rob Schremp

Makes chocolate Does not make chocolate

In the European Union, On the Springfield Falcons,
a powerful trading alliance marginal trade bait

Full of Belgians Full of himself

Not famous for hockey Famous for circus hockey
