Didn't really want it to come down to this, and as I said before, I'd have given up a win last Sunday for one this Sunday, but since we have to play them twice, might as well win it!
Go USA BEAT CANADA Pt. 2 Hockey Open Game Thread
It's Miller Time!
"Great Canadians Throughout History"
The thing only had four chapters discussing Wayne Gretzky, Alex Trebec (the world's smartest man), the guy who invented the jean jacket, and the first man to legally marry a moose.
Rumor has it that a new edition will include the LA Kings equipment manager, because he gets to sit so close to Jack Johnson while he tapes his stick.
America, FUCK YEAH!
They took out the guy who invented the jean jacket...
The list of Great Canadians begins and ends with William Shatner.
What are you talking about?!? Austin was British! Oh . . . you meant Mike Myers.
Am I the only one who thinks the "Go Canada Go" cheer has too many syllables? They have to say "Canada" really fast (it sounds more like "Can'da") to make it fit and even then it sounds odd.
They should just say "Can-a-da." Dueling "U-S-A" and "Can-a-da" chants would be awesome.
USA all the way. You think if they're losing in the 3rd period they'll come out with mighty ducks unis on?
against changing jerseys between periods..."
Biggest game in hockey history? Jeremy, you may have been awesome in NHL '94, but no, just no.
Don Cherry is the best Canadian ever!
Don Cherry is freaking awesome.
LELELELEL DOOOOO IIIITTTTT!!!! USA USA USA
But this is wholly necessary:
what happened? canada score?
you guessed right
And went on the power play seconds later. Killed it though.
Watching a sporting event without the TV timeouts.
...but is the US team playing a much less physical game this time out?
I don't think trying to pass and skate with Canada is going to be a great long term strategy for the US.
Hopefully Johnson set the tone for the 2nd period with the late hit there.
Should we put up a liveblog so idiots like me who scheduled their trip back home during the game, and can't watch the game because 45345 million people on the train to Toronto are trying to stream it at the same time?
Also canadian bacon sucks ass.
No! We know enough about the Liveblog Jinx not to risk it.
This one's for Colonel Custer. We're gonna beat them worse than we did the Germans for bombing Pearl Harbor.
Let's even this up now.
Looking kinda bleak now.
is there ever a good time?
But I would have gladly traded these for saves in a game like one we start out 6-0 in the first.
great early whistle there ugh
All the breaks we got last game are taking bad bounces this game. Could be 2-2.
didn't read the revised international play rule book. apparently canada did given crosschecks, elbows and holding are no longer called. oh and goaltender interference. that one didn't make it across the washington border.
Well, we can at least put a scare into the crowd now. Keep Canada on the edge of it's seats.
at least until the NHL season resumes
...he's the only US forward consistently capable of skating with anyone on the Canadian team. Kesler has also looked pretty good in the second period.
Team America-Fuck Yeah!
Pretty big miss for the announcers there, he is leading in points for the Olympics right now.
