TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
I'm talking trash to a coworker in Prague right now.
Me: you watching the hockey game?
CW: watching how we suck, yes.
Me: go USA
CW: Another goal. I hate hockey.
to watch the Canada game.
bupkes to show for it. Still 1-1, under 12:00
Hockey gods -- this one is officially all yours.
Penalty shot for Canada?
said "Da Fuck?!"
Hah even in international competition Ryan Getzlaf finds a way to, "goon it up."
Under 9. Next goal.
I really hope USA plays Latvia rather than Canada.
So when are the Canadian forwards going to show up?
absolute end of P. 2-1. See if Latvia has anything left. Doubt it.
I have all the confidence in the world in our team
I heard this same narràtive 4 years ago.
We know how that worked out.
...or every year from Canadians around WJC time.
I guess we only win in groups of 5 for WJC? Oh, well.
Heh. It's not like I'd even brought up Salt Lake City.
A 5-2 loss during round robin and an OT win? You can brag if you want, guess Canada doesn't have much else going for it, but that's not exactly a resounding victory. Especially for a country that hangs it's hat on one sport.
Should be a helluva game.
Pretty cool that each semi final game will be between rival, bordering countries.
Revenge on Friday!!
Even though it might make Nik Stauskas mad
He would be mad.
Me too, btw.
I've had a good feeling about this team ever since seeing the reaction on the faces of the US players 4 years ago in Vancouver. Gone were the postgame smiles and hugs between NHL teammates that we saw in 2002. This team gets it... gold or bust!
Hagelin shook off a dirty elbow to the head to score 2.
