Go Canada Go!

Amongst the fervor it is sometimes difficult to remember that it is just a game…. Okay, niceties aside for a change: it’s the greatest game going, so why not get caught up, and jump into the fervor! Congratulations to the women, the task is now left to the men. Two great Canadian teams, no matter what happens, no matter what anyone says.

So well coached against the Russians, a thing of beauty really. A well executed effort that should have shown anyone how this game is supposed to be played, and that the right players were selected for this team from the beginning. From big plays by the kids, right down to the subtleties that the veteran #27 controls the flow with, it has consistently looked like a good squad, that is only getting better.

  1. The loss to the US was a hit, but ending up with Slovakia in the draw may be a boon. Still, there is less “pure” sport in the men’s hockey tournament than any other part of the Olympics. That doesn’t mean I don’t want them to win, mind you.

At the same time, the level of competition in men’s ice hockey that takes place at the Olympics is unmatched. It is the highest level the sport is played at, and it is a beautiful thing to watch.
