I hope Cindy and Canada looses 13-0 and Getzlaf retires.
Open Thread: CANADA GOES FOR GOLD!!!
Awwwww someone a little upset this morning?
I hate all Canadian hockey I have since I played AAA and we would go up there and destroy teams. The way fans and players would act was worse than State and Ohio combined. That was over 10 years ago. Still hold that grudge. Crosby was a douche bag then and still is. I'm not saying he isn't an awesome player.
Your crap talk is hollow.
Maybe your magic team of remembered American conquerors could have better represented in Sochi.
American hero= a guy who can score shoot out goals in prelims
Canadian hero= the men and women who busted their asses and are bringing home the gold
You came up here 10 years ago and used to destroy teams in AAA. I find that funny, but I have to ask, your paragraph runs on to suggest that you have had some interaction with Crosby in those trips 10 years ago and from those interactions you found him to be a douche, is that what you're saying? Because I am calling BS if that's the case. Crosby played his AAA hockey here in Nova Scotia for the same team I played for (though separated by a few years), not in Ontario.
I understand that many of you hate Crosby because he beat your red wings and I can understand that (well, not really but I do get not being a fan of his) but you guys have taken it far too personally, especially the fact that he didn't shake your captians hand. He has even said it wasn't a big deal so why many of you fans can't get over it is beyond me.
You know before I came to this blog I used to be a fan of the USA in general. I also cheered for the USA in everything they competed in because I always looked at them as like a sibbling or something. I still do that today, but I have to say when i see posters like you making your ridiculous comments about my country I can't help but take a little joy in fact that we sent your team home. I mean, I know the players aren't cry babies like you so that isn't really fair....but there you go.
Neg away guys...getting that off my chest was worth it!
He actually played at SSM for one year ya gong show.
I hate Canada for more than just hockey. Unfortunately my job has me there sometimes. I always regret it when I enter Canadian airspace and their "special" rules.
You should just empty the shitter every time you're in their airspace. It's Canada, what are they going to do? They'd probably apologize the second they saw your American Passport.
I would if I could they took that ability away. I'd dump it right over any French speaking city.
That most of the Canada bashing on here today is just in fun. Or like the above poster said like a sibling rivalry. I, like a lot of Canadians feel like Canada is the younger sibling to the US. So I don't mind the sibling banter and teasing most of the time. But it's funny that you beat us is about 80% of the sports we play against each other, but when we beat you in a few you get your panties in a bunch. Much like an older sibling. But for you and all the others who have a problem with or hatred for my beautiful country, please feel free to go f@*k your hat. I need to go watch me some Rick Mercer "Talking to Americans" after reading some of this garbage.
Except for Justin Bieber. Fuck that guy.
but unfortunately not all of it is. When Bieber lived hear he was a nerdy kid with talent. He moved there and you turned him into a drug addict. It's your fault, so you keep him. I will however apologize for Alanis Morrissette and Robin Thicke and will reluctantly take them back.
I agree completely about JB. In fact, I saw a comic in a paper or somewhere (I can't really remember) that was written prior to the Canada USA game that said "Canada v USA...Loser gets Justin Beiber".
But what if I don't haz any hats? I really don't like anything your country does with aviation or hockey other than that carry on.
I was just having fun with you guys. However, we are now stuck with Beiber and Nickleback now. Thanks guys....
Go Sweden, screw Canada
Isn't this a michigan blog?
is the your first day on here in the last two weeks. There have been numerous Olympic threads. Oh, you can post about the Olympics as long as it isn't about a team that beat the US? If we would have lost to the US, I would be cheering for them right now.
Yeah, well we beat your asses when it counted: Dubulya-Dubulya-Two.
Ahhh the user name fits.... I mean you're fucking kidding me right???
The American side of the Falls kicks the CaNERDian side's ASS, buddeh.
Isaac Brock pwned you guys. Deal with it.
OK guy, 1st off: Brock wasn't even Canadian, we was from Guernsey, one of the British isles. What's next, you gonna claim Burgoyne for yourselves too? Montgomery? Typical Canadian- anything the British Crown does, you take the credit for.
2nd off, buddeh: Detroit in 1812 was the backwoods frontier and as usual you (and by "you," I of course mean, "the British") can't win shit without enlisting Natives to fight your battles for you.
3rd off, pal: Who kicked Brocks ass at the Niagra River when a real continental army threadened to invade? THATS RIGHT NEW YORKER STEVEN VAN RENSSELAER, who later started the 1st engineering school in the English speaking world.
I think the queen just called for you- better go see what she wants.
Mackinac, Detroit, Queenston Heights (go visit the statue)
BTW, it was the York Volunteers (also legend in Toronto) who did the winning in Detroit.
Revisionism should go to the winners, Canada.
Love ya Clarkie.
Who turned it black? That's right.
Unlike most of America, I'll be happy for Canada. They need *some* way to feel national adequacy, right? Even if that way is winning curling and hockey every 4 years at the Olympics, poor fellers.
we have the same amount as you and you have more people in California than we have in our entire country. We seem to be a little more adequate than...?
Woah man take it easy with the factual evidence.
but since I had only 5 1/2 hours of sleep and watching the game, my tolerance for being berated by our neighbours is at a minimum this morning. I usually just laugh if off, but not today.
I hope Quebe secedes
*Steps backwards toward the good side of THE LINE with hands up*
whoa whoa, My bad, by bad.
Same here. Took a little longer than usual getting home from Yost last night
Met too. We closed down Mongolian after Yost last night.
Had more to do with having to drive 90 minutes. Add in stopping to get food and pay duties on beer
if I was at the game, I wouldn't even be home yet.
Lucky is one word for it. Costly to be going over and back as often as I do to make season tix purchase worth it
Wait till the summer Olympics when the Canucks get 2 medals and America gets 100.
come now, per-capital medal count is the only way to judge the quality of a nation. Now, let's all start making fun of Brazil and India now, shall we?
Yeah India's haul is embarrassing for a country of +1 billion. They weren't recognized by the IOC for the first two days of the games.
considering we have snow for 6 months of the year and half your country gets none.
Wow, that's a lot of snow. You guys must be much better at the Winter Olympics than the US with your entire country being covered in snow for six months.
*Looks at medal standings*
I'm so tired of the population argument when it comes to Hockey. A larger percentage of Canada's much smaller population plays hockey. A large enough difference in percentage that Canada has a larger pool of Hockey talent to pull from than the US(From Wiki):
What's more amazing than Canada's ability to stay ahead of the US in hockey despite that crazy population gap? That Finland and Sweden win Bronze and Silver despite having roughly one tenth the size of a talent pool to pull from.
Is it surprising that <2% of Canada's citizens are registered with Hockey Canada as players or is the majority of non-youth hockey not sanctioned (which is the case in the US)? I can't believe that so few Canadians are currently playing even if you factor in gender.
my comment was aimed towards the lad who said you'd kill us in the summer Olympics. Places like California, Texas, Florida and the like can practice outdoors year round. Kind of hard to practice for marathons, cycling, beach volleyball or rowing events when there is a few feet of snow covering the land. Also since you have nearly 10 times our population you have a greater talent pool to pull from. We should obviously be better in hockey because we have more people playing that sport and fund it accordingly. You can also play hockey year round.
Edit Weird I responded to Maison Bleue's comment not yours.
It's the Winter Olympics, friend. The home of sports they seriously just pull out out their asses (parallel snowboard slalom?!?). For shit's sake, the Netherlands have like 25 medals just from speed skating. Good on Canada for dominating useless sports (curling, seriously?), because everyone needs a little national pride: even America's hat.
Just because your representatives can't hit water if they fell out of an f'n boat.
FUCKING RIGHT!!!! 1-0 Carter to Toews
Fuck canada. Go Sweden!
So you want michigan alum Carl Hagelin to not win the gold? Some alum you are. Go Carl!
Yes if it means that my home country repeats as gold medalist. Pretty hypocritical as I'm sure the Americans would be the boards fav team even if max didn't make the team. And I'm not an alum of the university of Michigan. Little too costly for my blood.
Actually if Max wasn't on the team, then go team Slovakia.
Why not Austria?? Lebler and all
that if Patches wasn't on team USA, and this game was the US vs Sweden. You'd want Sweden to win,right?
In that case my national pride would kick in. Seeing Canucks are douchebag hosers when it comes to hockey and have zero michigan alums, go Sweden.
Good luck to Team Canada, and their management staff made of Michigan parents.
They need this. If they lose, half of Ontario will commit suicide.
Of natural resources we exploit. And a couple Tim Horton's that still make their own dough instead of the bastardized Tim's in the states that Dave Thomas ruined. Another reason to hate Ohio.
No he's right we have absolutely NOTHING else. It's a rough life over here
if Phil Kessel's sister will let him hold her silver medal.
Haley wickenhiser will let Sidney Crosby use her Pierre Trudeau shaped dildo.
I heard she doesn't like to share, but I heard it from a friend of a friend of a friend. So, I'm not sure how true that is.
And it is Hayley.
Add it to the pile of anti-american vitriol you've spooned up today.
It's days like today I wish The Mountie were still wrestling so I could look upon a truly evil Canadian. Or the Rougeau Brothers. Or Dino bravo. Or heel Chris Jericho.
Hey she doesn't need to share. She worked incredibly hard to "win" that silver.
The Gus Johnson of hockey. And I love it.
FUCK YEAH!!!! CROSBY 2-0!!!!
Good job Crosby.
But its starting to be in the "because he's so good" category like Gretzky.
I don't know who I hate more Crosby or Lebron. Well the slobbing over Lebron has caused me to completely abandon the NBA.
I hate Cindy crosby
Ok this annoys me. People on this site make sure no one uses childish nicknames for our rivals all the time (and rightfully so IMO) yet a bunch of Wings fans throw around Cindy Crosby all the time. Just stop. He is an amazing hockey player just like LeBron is an amazing basketball player. If the media prevents you from enjoying getting the chance to watch them then fine. I even understand to a point. But stop with the nickname.
And I don't mean this to you personally, just the example I see today.
It is pathetically lame. Worse, given his dominance.
Nope, Cindy is a cy baby who whines to the refs for the smallest of checks. Yes, he is talented. However, it doesn't change that he does a bunch of crying and whining during games. If Cindy wants to stop the nickname then actually show some toughness out on the ice.
Lebron is a bitch who will sit out a game for a hang nail. Do not ever compare Lebron to the greatest in basketball. The distance between great forwards like Barkley and Magic and Lebron is like the grand canyon. Lebron is the reason I refuse to support the NBA and consider the league to be completely fixed.
Is it ok for him to whine whenever he gets touch because he went to UofM or because he's an American?
If Crosby somehow miraculously played for the Wings (or your team if you aren't a Wing's guy) you'd be all about his game.
He isn't "talented" he's the best player in the game.
Oh, and he has two gold medals and a ring. Scoreboard/Sour Grapes
I imagine this is exactly how you feel about LeBron, right?
This is like going to an alcoholics anonlymous meeting but I grew up a Cavs fan (the only televised games we could get back in the pre World Wide Leader) era.
What the fuck happened to this board?
Will Canada finally stop complaining about the lack of goaltender development since brodeur got old?
Everyone will just say they put the most legendary defense of all time in front of him. I mean, who else sits the Norris trophy winner?
Berglund hit reminiscent of Claude Lemieux. Same area of ice too
he's no Marie-Philip Poulin!
I love that shit especially with extra gravy on the frites.
4 goals and two golds!
Hes the Best player in the world. His haters on this side of the border who have been calling him out for not scoring need to remember he's playing the game Babcock wants. But In the biggest of moments you want the puck on his stick
the favorite? They're getting their asses kicked. Completely one sided game.
It is looking a lot like the semifinal game against the United States.
Depends on what you read and where it was from. USA was being favored by every American outlet after the preliminary round shoot out win over that team with no defense.
Defense wins championships. The forechecking and depth of the canucks overwhelmed teams. Man i am depressed right now. I hate my life at the moment. I just busted into the irish coffee.
If a win guarantees a robin sparkles comeback tour.
"Let's go to the mall!"
I'm a "Sandcastles in the Sand" kind of guy
Fine you can have it.
FUCK YES!!!!!!! 3-0
Now let's talk Stanley Cup
Dominant performance. Never trailed in the tournament.
It is going to be a long four years until South Korea. I hate Crosby and the Canadian hockey team with a fire of a thousand suns. This has been the most depressing three days of hockey in my life. I am going to start drinking now. I am depressed right now.
Congrats canada, now watch as another American NHL team wins the cup.
because the winning team will have more Canadians on it than any other nationality.
wait until we Americans kick your ass at the next Junior championships.
I think I am going to drink myself to death tonight. WORST DAY EVER.
Sorry, we only win WJC championships in groups of five.
ouch haven't won the gold medal at the WJC since 2009 and medaled since 2012.
Clearly this is impacting our NHL performance at a national level and our Olympic performance.
Maybe you guys can pull off an IIHF championship as well. You know, your women win a lot of those when not winning Olympic titles also.
We will see when more of the USA Development Program alums transition to the senior level. JMFJ, JVR, Kessel, Kane, Howard, and Fowler making an impact. Goaltending has been a strength of the US Development program in recent years. Jack Campbell needs to step at the professional and senior level.
We could win a lot more IIHF women titles if Canada would stop punking us at the championships. They need to start allowing checking for women.
2008 Red Wings say hello.
Go away. Most annoying teams ever. Kinda sad since they are so close but true.
What you really mean is:
"Now they can finally stop winning"
Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
Cool on winning the gold. Now let's have a world wide American football tournament.
You guys are why I like beating the US at hockey so much. Go Canada!
Those fucks love to burn shit.
I enjoyed the guy in the Nordiques hat...
Ok, I had fun trash talking with you Canadian hosers. Congrats on the gold. See you in four years in South Korea. With a more feverent rivalry ramping up between the USA and Canada in both the senior and junior brackets of hockey, it should be a fun tournament.
Carl Hagelin can now say he is a medal winning Olympian.
We were only allowed to discuss Michigan (and fucking Detriot sports teams), at least that is what several douchbags on this blog will tell you. While I don't agree with this logic, I do feel the OP should have started with OT....
They did. OT= Open Thread
Haha well done. And I'm pretty sure the American games weren't labelled ot. And Detroit sports are still ot unless it is directly involving a wolverine. Shut the fuck up and let us Canadian Michigan fans rejoice in our gold medals
OT = OFF TOPIC
Randy Floyd, before next fall you're in need of a serious attitude adjustment young man, you better get your priorities straight, and watch out with that other crowd your running with, dont think I haven't noticed
I've got coaches and everybody else's attitude adjusted priorities right here.
too much about Canada.
also, the US Ladies were robbed.
