Cool photo of the day: Czech Republic Olympic jerseys in ice

OK, so the encasing of hockey jerseys in ice isn't anything new, but set it to a backdrop of an old European city and you have a vivacious image.

OK, so the encasing of hockey jerseys in ice isn't anything new, but set it to a backdrop of an old European city and you have a vivacious image.

This picture was taken in Wenceslas Square in Prague, Czech Republic. It is one of two central squares in the city and lies at the heart of New Town. It's not really new as the area was actually laid out in the 14th century, but that can be considered new when you're talking about a city that has been settled in for 2,000-plus years (though it didn't get its current name until some time in the ninth century).

The guy on the horse looking down on the Nike ad from the background is good King Wenceslas, who you may have been singing about last month.

I could stare at that beautiful picture all day.
