Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
Official MGoBlog BEAT CANADA Thread
What was that? I was stuck in an elevator with your obese children and the blubber was blocking my eyes and ears.
I'm sorry, i can't seem to read your comment past all these medals that are blocking my view:
G S B T
1. United States 6 7 10 23
2. Germany 4 6 4 14
3. Norway 5 3 3 11
yeah but where are you guys in sports that actually matter, like skeleton? Yeah that's what I thought.
Yeah we're more of one then you. The Chinese and Saudi's don't own 40% of us.
The queen has a better arm then the whole Tigers pitching staff. So i wouldnt be complaining about her.
Wait, Ohio is still in the U.S.A.? Damnit, who screwed that up??
The Expos are currently making more money then all of america combined.
I don't think growth counts while being 3 trillion in the hole.
also true of the most valuable teams in all of sports like the Yankees, Red Sox, Red Wings, Maple Leafs, Manchester United, Real Madrid...
Oh, that's cold.
That's because 40% of you is only worth $25.
Not a worthwhile investment.
Canada leads the world in being just north of the US
But it also gives a reach-around to Michigan.
HA! That's gold!
Who wants to own 40% of Canada?? I mean, how many maple syrup plants does one country need??
We Canadians are proud that Canada is America's hat
It took canada how long to gold medal in a hosted game? Thats what I thought.
For a country with no summer, you'd think they would have figured out the winter games sooner.
Better make those totals
1. United States 7 7 10 24
2. Germany 4 6 4 14
3. Norway 5 3 3 11
Bode Miller wins gold! Wooooo!
eh buddy? well the jerk store called,they're out of business because your stupid capitalist economy collapsed.
you'll have to forgive them for not thinking that selling nothing but moose meat and denim-based formalwear was a solid business model...
Haha nice Seinfeld reference.
I'm not your buddy, guy!
U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
I can see you don't have time between your 15 Big Macs to write anything intelligent.
This is America, we don't speak French, we don't pull over for horse mounted police men, and we sure as hell don't settle for no big macs.
and the McGangbang is more fun to say but my preference for gross over-indulgence is the Grand Slam at Wendy's (quad quarter pounder) because instead of wasting gut space with the extra bread and that wimpy chicken patty, you get a full pound of beef.

America... FUCK YEAH!

There...fixed that for you.
Or Shania Twain.
Or Avril Lavigne.
Or Alanis Morisette.
They're also responsible for Sarah McLachlan, who helped put out those ASPCA commercials.
but they did give us The Guess Who and Rush
Yea but we gave them rock n roll
is that a glitch? negative 98,427 mgopoints????
It should be -99999
GO SEAL BASHERS!
hasn't had any worthwhile exports since Lee Aaron
Canada: Good for nothing
P.S. Yeah, I'm excited for this. Wut.
I couldn't care less about hockey (sorry, guys), but I am oh-so-pumped for this game. Largely because of these patriotic animated .gif files.
I don't wanna get into this bitch fight this canuk is raising (It's ok he's just mad because he's not american) I just want to say fuck Canada and Go USA!!!!
You know whats a bitch? The US being in sight of Russia. It must be scary.
What time and channel?
MSNBC at 7 EST, IIRC
If you don't have MSNBC (like me b/c it's not on Bronze Plus on Dish Network), channelsurfing.net has two feeds ready to go for tonight, and CTV.ca out of Canada will have the Great White North propaganda.
Only thing good out of there is strong beer, and good strip clubs.
Ovechkin just Fucked. Jagr. Up.
Wow. Formerly Commie Bastard Superpowers 3, 1/2 of Former Commie Bastard Satellite Buffer Zone 1.
(For those of you who weren't born until the Berlin Wall fell, that's Russia 3, Czech Rep 1)
I admire your perseverance. Yours is a tale of redemption.
I've lost many an ox attempting this.
fuck this I wanna hunt.
Nothing but squirrels for you. Better cut back to "meager" or those three pounds of meat aren't gonna last you til Soda Springs.
You have died of dysentery.
As a rule of thumb I +1 any and every reference to Oregon Trail.
Every so often I like to check in and see how you're doing. Someday I hope to see
If he gets up to -95000, I'm starting a petition to put him back to 0.
Have faith! We can do it! We all keep pos'ing, and 0 is just right around the corner...!
And down the road...and another couple of turns...an exit ramp or two...parking...and a transcontinental flight away...from being in the ballpark...
I'm pretty sure he asked Brian if he could have his points back during the Signing Day liveblog and Brian said he could...but I think it's more fun this way.
You're going down Maple Breath.
but this is the funniest thing I've read all day. +1
Here's to a day (well, couple of weeks, actually) full of unabashed jingoism.
Let's go USA!
Uncle Sam is coming for ya, moose fuckers.
I read recently that Canada didn't gain complete independence from Great Britain until 1982. (Which . . . wow. Canada is younger than me then.) It wasn't until then that Canada was allowed to amend its constitution without having to ask the mother country for permission. It took 'em four centuries of colonial potty-training to learn how to function on their own?
Technically they do....QEII is the Queen of Canada, yes, but in a role totally separate from her role as Queen of the UK.
Still, it's not like Canada had to fight for independence....it's just that the UK realized they didn't have any use for all those moose.
For a victory over them in the medal round. ;-)
We want to beat Canada today, and in the medal round to knock them out. Excessive success is the American Way. Well, that and shitloads of guns! Wooo! Pry it from my cold dead fingers!!!
Go Canada, beat those Mexico Touchers!
.....and the Shawn Conway angst has found its outlet.
dang MGoThread unpredictability... I was expecting a neg bang! Oh well... here goes... GO CANADA!!
Canada is America's crown! How can you root for a country with a bad CURLING TEAM! Canada is aboot to make a big move in the medal count in the sports that matter- Skeleton, Curling and hockey. If there was any olympic event involving something with a moose we would win that too!
Boooooo! Get off the stage!
America, fuck yeah!
Woo!!! USA USA USA
First goal USA!
take that marty!
This sucks. I don't have MSNBC, and the channelsurfing.net feeds both just died :(
We're just being outplayed
must've cheated there
where is this for the Red Wings? Awesome
Just showed two of the male ice dancers who are roommates at uofm holding an all in for michigan towel
The hockey game on one channel with U-M skaters, Ski Cross, and Bode (that should have been live at noon) at the same time.
anyone got a link for streaming on CTV? (no i cant watch ctv's official, don't live in canada. can't stand nbc play by play)
This game is so exciting and fast paced. We gotta keep it going. Two more periods of play. US is doing a good job sticking in the game.
It is hilarious. Apparently, the US is dominating Canada in every facet of the game...according to their announcers anyway.
LiveBlog over at ESPN. First one to sneak Coner! in gets +1000 MGoPoints, right?
I am kind of surprised of how loud the Canadians are getting at every offensive move. Kind of reminds me of watching Ohio State fans or Bluejacket fans.
...there's not that much difference.
Tie game :(
Canada just tied it up and our defense is playing awful. Miller is the only reason the US is even in this game, much less tied.
that for the US to stay in this game Miller would have to stand on his head. So far so good (knocking on wood)
I don't understand the logic of Jock Jams. Why is "Sweet Caroline" suddenly a must-play on every arena PA?
the Red Sox
Are the Canadians shouting "asshole" at times?
The American skiing for Canada in the Ski Cross final wiped out spectacularly and didn't medal.
Yeah, I didn't think so... :-(
Ron Mason-y-ist. Sparty On for Uncle Sam?
As an American, it's nice to finally have him on our side. Canadian Wolverines get the double-whammy.
Never thought I'd say this, but Ryan Miller is my hero right now. Unbelievable effort by him.
Also, Jack MF Johnson.
a comedy of errors. 3 Canadians colliding and injuring each other. Real smooth
Does it seem like this may be the most epic tie in Olympic hockey? errr.... I mean GOAL! USA USA USA USA
is stunned. It's like someone took their Tim Horton's delicious apple fritter away.
Wow, end-to-end play! O_O
Don't Tread on Us!!
We're gonna make them work for it if at all.
Johnson is all grown up because he would have cracked him in college.
Johnson not going off there is probably one of the more surprising things I've seen tonight.
And of course, Niedermayer showing some class as usual...clown.
Jack's in it for the long haul. He'll flip off Niedermayer from the gold medal podium and call it even!
/Niedermayer needa a beating, not just for this but for his caliber of play in the NHL
Sidenote: Drew Doughty is 20 years old. He is going to be really freaking good. That is all.
So was that Eruzione guy.
is getting their sea legs and have absorbed Canada's body shots up to now.... let's see if Canada goes all out with a huge push after the power play elapses..
Answer: So that Neither person misses any of the Hockey game. Question: Why do Canadiens Prefer it Doggy-style?
3-2 USA going into the third? What's that all aboot eh?
to watch a hockey game where there isn't a penalty called every three minutes.
Can't count out the Sidney cheap shot...
A goal there would have been nice...
give me more PP, babby!
and after watching the Polish commercials, I'm convinced of two things:
1) My homeland is obsessed with digestive health since every other commercial is for yogurt or fiber drinks. Having eaten Polish food all my life, I can see why this is so.
2) The guy doing the ads for the Polish version of cholesterol drugs looks a damn fair bit like the guy from "The Lighting Boutique" commercials on CBC...
Polish feed at http://www.vshare.tv/live/161385/LiveScoreHunter
I prefer cholesterol drugs that have vowels in their name myself. But hey if it works for you, go for it.
That just beauitful how we killed a solid minute off the clock on that delayed penalty call.
And hopefully a goal, finally...
Roy Boy: I want to call the American embassy!
Boomer: All I said was "Canadian beer sucks!"
Kabral: People! People! Can't we all just get along?
Deflected off Langenbrunner, so he gets the credit. Still, Rafi playing like a complete madman.
Rafalski! USA! CAPS AND EXCLAMATION POINTS !!!!
is tasting great!
while I kiss your girlfriend and drink your beer.
USA USA USA 4-2
I love Ron Wilson coached teams on the PP....
Soo you're sayin' there's a chance....!
OOOOH ESSS AHHHH
Sir, the Helms amendment and NSC order 725 both specifically prohibit the use of Omega Force against Caucasians.
I'm sorry, I decided to look at the IMDB Canadian Bacon page. So funny.
Surrender pronto, or we'll level Toronto!
Like maple syrup, Canada's evil oozes over the United States.
is Babcock and Yzerman are going to ROASTED by the Globe and Mail tomorrow....
How much must it suck being Canadian?? The only thing they don't suck at is Hockey and we're taking it to them in their own house.
Drinking at 19 and "liberal" rules regarding strip clubs...must be rough.
Dud, speaking from exprience, 16 year old strippers are kind of creepy. It just feels wrong at some level.
/I would kill every last one of you for Canadian citizenship and a job in Vancouver though. Kayaking on the Pacific, amazing women, great city.
True, I forgot about the age issues. I'm going to go shower.
I haven't been in a Canadian "establishment" since I was 19.
Canadians need that low drinking age (in Quebec it's actually 18) to compensate for their utter lack of college football.
I have been looking forward to this one since the Olympics started, and it has not disappointed.
PP Canucks. not feeling goodt. hate the 2 goal lead.
not a hat trick but still a two goal lead
on the feed I'm watching and he looks PISSED, eh.
Nice kill guys.
where the fuck was the goaltender interference on that one? I mean Crosby was only lying in the net there!
The Scottish Ice Dancer had a tramp stamp, no lie.
Gaelic Knot? Butterfly? "Enter Here" sign? Logo of favorite brand of scotch?
else loving Ryan Miller right now?
Tension grows, the whistle blows,
And the puck goes down the ice
Battle of Bastogne impression
"The Canadians demand you surrender, Gen Miller, what say you?"
that was coming.
Babcock is wishing he had Lidstrom and rafalski on the points right now instead of his howitzer patrol of Pronger?
What a save.
Someone laughed when I said Ryan Miller was the best goalie in these games. Still laughing now?
EDIT: Of course I say that and Miller lets in a relatively easy one...
by Miller and JMFJ there. Dayum
The state of Michigan is represented well...
What a crap goal. Fuckin crosby
Tremendously Tremendous, even if he just let in a goal.
Get ready for 3 min of Candian pressing...
Even with that Crosby goal, Miller is having a game. This one is living up to the billing.
Is it just me, or is Crosby wearing a bluetooth? Seriously.
I just heard that, right?
Jesus...can ANYONE clear the puck???
Oh my god. Must find way to lower blood pressure.
That was a ridiculous barrage
"How Much Time Is Left?"
someone from the US just lost a leg blocking that shot
Holy Shit what a play!!!!!!!!!!
what a play!!!!!!
This game was fucking awesome. Just awesome
All Your Hockey Are Belong to US!
USA USA USA USA USA USA USA
OH YEAH, BABY!!!!!
That's excessive celebration next year in college...
Most emotion showed for a pool play game ever?
Does Jack Johnson ever come off the ice?? Every time I look he's out there.
USA USA USA!
OOOOOO ESSSSS AHHHH OOOO ESSSSS AHHHH
Good. We don't have to hear anything from any Canadians for a week.
Honestly though, Canada needed this. They've been sleep walking this whole tournament. I think this will wake them up.
I wouldn't want to have to be Germany (next team to play Canada).
I thought having to go to a shootout would have woken Canada up.
I wonder what Don Cherry would say about this? 5-3. USA! USA! Suck it Barry!
Uncle Sam's about to Fuck. Shit. Up.
SCHWEEEEEEEEET!!!! Really, one wild and crazy game.
Mix metaphors much?
that's as good a hockey game as I've ever seen.
FYI, NBC proper has post game live, so if you didn't get MSNBC...
Showed us paupers the last 35 seconds of the game. Better than nothing, I guess.
Anyway. WOOOOOOOO USA!
Excellent. So, so excellent.
Major props to Ryan Miller tonight. He was absolutely incredible. Rafalski was amazing, the entire country should be prou of these guys even if your not a hockey fan
And they finished before the U-M ice dancers in contention. :-)
And yet won the game. That sounds like every Red Wings opponent in last year's playoffs.
That sounds like us every time we faced Miller in college.
Whoa... that was a killer last couple minutes. Nice to see USA pull it out!
Odd note of the day: I watch TV with the closed captions on. At one point, the announcer said that there was a lot of hockey talent in the building, but the captions came up as "honky talent".
I decided that's just as accurate. A Men's hockey match in Canada? Probably wasn't a black person anywhere in the building.
That's a crying shame too. I'm black and my stepson (who is white) and I took in a Wings game back in November and I could probably count in one hand with a couple of finger left over the number of blacks at the game. Black folks, ya gotta open your minds. Hockey is a hell of game. With that being said, that was a hell of a game. I have to admit Miller held it down pretty good.
I thought it would be hard to have any nationalistic pride with so many familiar names in the Olympics, Babcock coaching Canada, etc. But the minute they showed the first close-up of Crosby and then Rafalski scoring twice, I got sucked in big time.
It's also cool rooting for players you normally wouldn't.
with the hate when crosby, pronger, and getzlaf are all on the same team. I hate all of them. Its dangerous for Canada to have a line of Sharks. Gives them another chance to choke under pressure
Whoever edited Wikipedia seems to think the US has clinched #1 seed overal....but that doesn't seem right as us and Finland have the same goal differential. So it seems to me, if Finland wins in regulation, they get #1, correct?
Depending on outcome of the game tonight.
I think you mean "we and Finland."
I really meant, "Finland and I," but I thought I'd go ahead and be more inclusive.
We beat you on your ice!
True you had more shots
But Rafalski scored twice!
We be you on your ice!
True you had more shots, but Rafalski scored twice!
With speedy glove Miller made the saves
That kept us in the game.
When you scored a goal, we answered back
And beat you five to three.
Swedes beat the Finns, giving us first seed.
O Canada, we beat you five to three.
O Canada, we beat you five to three!
If you just listened to Melrose this is NOT sitting well in Canada. They probably should not have stopped selling liqour at 7 pm on Saturday.
I think Miller is the only Sparty I will ever root for. He does a lot of good work in Buffalo (which is almost as bad as Detroit)and seems to be an all around classy guy. Not to mention my wife is from Buffalo and is a huge Sabre's fan so I was kind of obligated to before now anyway.
With that I have to say: USA! USA!
but here's a sampling from the GLobe & Mail's comments on the game:
"It wouldn't matter who was in nets for Canada, Brodeur, Fluery, or Luong-choke. None of them is having a good year and the American and European goalies are simply better this year."
"pronger is brutal, bench the guy"
"This is one of the most important hockey games in 4 years! I hate to see it lost due to a goaltender that keeps wandering away from the goal and trying to play the puck! Please for the love of Hockey, pull Brodeur!!!"
"the way Canada's been playing I don't think they could even beat the Leaf's."
"Why is Joe Thornton on this team??? Why is he out there with 34 seconds to go and the net empty when he's too slow to get back and can't do anything in the corners??? We chose this guy over Jeff Carter and Steve Stamkos? Why is Babcock so stubborn, this San Jose Line is doing nothing rignt now. They bring to physical game and need to be benched, so what if they have chemistry, THEY CAN'T SCORE!!!"
"Brodeur cost us at least 2 goals tonight. As far as I am concerned he played himself off the starting lineup. Team Canada needs to start crashing the night and burying their empty net chances. How can these multi-millionaire players keep missing the net? This was the capper to a brutal weekend for the Canadian Olympic effort. Own the Podium is dead."
Geeze. You'd think the Canadian team beat up his mom and at his dog... or vice versa.
If Sweden wins tonight (by less than five goals), the US avoids Russia, Canada, and Sweden until the gold medal game. Help us out you sweet Nordic bastards.
Or if the game goes OT. Once that happens it doesn't matter who wins.
