I get them wanting to root for the underdog, but I would think that their ideal situation would be a rematch with us. They'll need everything they've got to get past Russia today, though. That will be a great game.

I wouldn't be so sure... Sweden, Finland, Russia, Czech Republic, and Canada are still in it.

Only 3 can win a medal - and I think any of those teams are capable of beating the US.

Last olympics finished out like this:
Gold: Sweden
Silver: Finland
Bronze: Czech Republic
4th: Russia
5th: Slovakia
6th USA

Add Canada into that mix this year...

Mogulseeker
02-24-2010, 04:43 PM
BTW, America will play the winner of the Finland/Czech game. If they win that game, they're guaranteed a silver.

If they lose, they'll have to beat the #2 of the other bracket (the losing team between the winners of the Sweden/Slovakia and Canada/Russia game) for bronze.

I will say that I like this USA team more than ones in the past. They're not as much the bruising type anymore - quicker and more scrappy, which is better suited for the olympics... and I think why Canada has struggled recently. Its also why Sweden and Finland have recently dominated to olympics/world cup - they're more finesse style (as opposed to the North American game) is better suited for the Olympics, who play European-rule hockey.

actually i pointed out to my son that play he made behind the net, on his knees ( a position hes used tobehind bettmans desk) still going for the puck, and making the pass out front, anyhow i said see buddy, you always keep trying, that was an awesome effort.

Im still glad he hasnt actually gotten any results tho.

Canada dodged a bullet in their game.

Really shaky third period. Once it was 3-1, Slavakia predictably took it up a notch, but Canada's inability to slow that surge at all was surprising.

I think Canada can count on Luongo to give them better goaltending Sunday than Brodeur did first time around, but this US team has improved in significant ways too. The top line finally seems to be clicking, with Kane/Statstny/etc getting it going. Plus we have little pressure (most didn't see us even contending for bronze), while Canada obviously has the mental well-being of an entire nation at stake. If we can score first again (US has yet to trail these Olympics), look out.

BlaK-Argentina
02-26-2010, 11:29 PM
Slovakia was SO close to tying it in that last play that I jumped out of my seat... even though I can't wait to see a rematch between the US and Canada it was really exciting to see such an inferior team take it to them in the final 5 minutes. Would have been cool to see them win it but even in OT my guess is Canada would have taken back control of the game rather quickly. But yeah, kind of a shaky third period there for the favorites!

Can't wait for sunday.

Indeed.

The funniest moment yesterday was with 10 minutes left against Slovakia the entire arena was chanting "We want USA"...followed by their team almost blowing a 3 goal lead.

I'm really not sure where their hockey overconfidence is coming from. They've won the gold once in the last 58 years and didn't even come close to medaling last Olympics. Obviously a ton of great NHL talent coming from there, but they really don't have a history of putting it together well. Nice win over Russia aside (though Russia was less than impressive all tournament), they've looked nothing like a juggernaut. If they are a better team than the US, it's not by much. Odds on the rematch are about 50-50 in my mind.

Hamilton, Ontario....that's not all that far from where I live. I live in NW Ohio, about 45 minutes from Detroit.

I've been fishing in Canada almost every year since I was a kid. I usually go through the Sault and head Northwest, but I've fished Georgian Bay a few times and Rice Lake once.

so i drive by your house then when i take the long way home from cedar point, its 502 kms via buffalo and 522 via detroit.

my parents had a cottage on rice lake when i was growing up.

GOLD medal count

CANADA 10
germany 9
usa 8

congrats on coming in second and third a bunch of times tho

Yeah, and the Chinese always win the Gold medal count because shooting and diving account for like thirty gold medals in the summer games. The silver and bronze simply confirm the improved overall talent and strength of our athletics programs. Wasn't long ago 12 would have been a major medal haul for us in the winter games.

We're not overly confident. We're insanely optimistic, though. Canada has a tendency to beat down any attempts to be proud of itself. Seriously. And any pride we have is of things that make us different from Americans. That is the entire basis of Canadian identity. "What makes us different from Americans?" It sounds kind of sad, but I don't think it is. We're the little brother of the most powerful culture and economy the world has ever known. We have to grasp to the things that make us unique. Poutine. The Cold. Beer. Apologizing for everything. Hockey. I'm dead serious.

The Modern Canadian Identity is entirely summarized by this:

<object width="384" height="313"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/BRI-A3vakVg&hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/BRI-A3vakVg&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="384" height="313" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

In any event, I don't think we're being cocky. I really don't. This is just insanely important to us. We feel like the neglected brother when it comes to America, so when we get a chance in the spotlight, a chance to feel Canadian and to feel damn good about it, we get ****ing revved up for it.

Is the "Own the Podium" campaign a little asshole-ish? Sure. But we've hosted the olympics twice before, and neither time did a Canadian win a gold medal. This is just really important to us.

said it before and will say it forever. the olympics are just no damn fun without the soviet union and the eastern bloc countries. O the days.. our girl swimmers vs. the east german "girls" swimmers even tho they had adams apples and deep voices.... getting robbed of basketball gold in '72. our college kids beating the Red Menace hockey team in '80.
i found it hard not to root for the canadien hockey team a few years back because half the team (it seemed)were colorado avalanche players and some of the american team were(gag) detroit redwings.
it also used to be our american amatures against the worlds best pros. Owell

I'm pumped guys. I know we've been making fun of the Canadians for the game "meaning too much," but ice hockey is really the only sport in either summer or winter olympics I get very invested in either. While we might not have the same nation wide devotion, I guarantee there are still many, many millions of big hockey fans in the States who will be very much caring if we win or lose.

30 years since Lake Placid. '88 was the last time a team has won every game in the tournament. Let's do it! We've beat them for a championship on Canadian ice before:

Canada kicked ass second half of Olympics. Most golds ever impressive even if about half of them in sports we don't care about like Ice Dancing, Curling, and then a bunch of there women did really well.

Hell we won both downhills, 4 man bobsled, first medals in Nordic, those are the balls events right there.

It all comes down to the Hockey imo.

I guess we could say golds worth 5 points, silver worth 3, Bronze 1, add them up see what team has most points.

Golds are best but they give 3 medals, which gives value to 2nd and 3rd place. So those have to be counted. Plus it shows how close America was to truly just dominating. Some of those silvers and bronzes were very close to being better.

A great games for North America. Canada is our friends and if any other country was going to win the golds I would want it to be them. Gracious hosts and nice people when we visit.

They should rename the winter games to the Rich People With Mountains games.
Because that is all the winter games is. I mean i don't know many schools where you can take curling or luge .

anyhow

those of us that hate him, do so because the league has IGNORED other stars such as ovechkin, kane, toews, malkin, thorton, stasny, and put all its promo money into cindy crosby, if you only watch alittle bit of hockey youd think he was the best player to ever walk the face of the earth.

yes hes a good player, he has even improved on his diving and crying a little, BUT the league needs to promote other players and quit shoving him down our throats.

least now all these stupid sports will go back to obscurity where they belong.

Winter Olympics suck @$$.. half the events are nothing but demonstrations of momentum and have more to do with tech then sport....

They should rename the winter games to the Rich People With Mountains games.
Because that is all the winter games is. I mean i don't know many schools where you can take curling or luge .

Summer games = no real equipment just god given gifts that anyone can compete at.

Winter games = unless you have money , equipment , and live near snow you could care less about these sports.

Arguably, the worst all time post. On par with some of the most ignorant tripe ever spoken. Congrats, your a gold medal moron!

Wrong.

Simply because the winter games are based upon cold weather sports does not mean it's a rich person's sport. If you grow up playing these games because you live in a place with cold weather and snow and ice then that has nothing to do with wealth and everything to do with health and recreation.

Now, your saying that because a much smaller number of countries field a winter team, it's meaningless. That's racist my friend. That's how it starts. Congrats on another gold medal in moron posting. Really, your outdoing youself. No, I mean it, congrats.

Obviously there is a difference...SUMMER and WINTER...as in warm weather sports, cold weather sports. And that's the main difference in participation. You don't have poor African, Middle Eastern, South Asian, Carribean nations participating because...gasp...they don't have cold weather, thus they don't have a culture built up around those sports at all.

Look at the Eastern Bloc countries that aren't exactly thriving economies. The winter sports are part of their culture, and they have invested in infrastructure around those sports.

Again, obviously winter sports do cost more money in equipment and facilities. And that does mean more there will tend to be more wealthy people/nations that do well. And that might be proven by stats.

What isn't "proven" is that they are "stupid" or "elitist." That's just your personal (unhealthy) animosity. Do you hate golf this much too?

Go figure a moron like you would make this into a race thing ...

Well I guess every media outlet has just lied all week when cover this end of the story because I'm just parroting something I agree with from the news.

And if you don't think it cost more to compete in the winter game then the summer game you are just uneducated and not much i can do to change that.

You see to be good at skiing you would have to have the money to buy skis and maybe have a season pass to a mountain and maybe live in a rich ski resort city or maybe you get lucky and catch the eye of the right people when you are young and get sponsors to pay your way.


Where if you happen to be the fastest man at the 100meters in your country then nothing you don't have will keep you from trying to win gold.


Sorry we disagree ... But you are not disagreeing with me , you are disagree with facts and stats others have compiled ... good luck with that.

True hypocrisy at it's finest. The poster actually says it's a financial thing and says it's about cost. Then poster ignores that countries get to bid on the games. It's a free vote. Host country then has to pay to put games on.

Nice. Nice. So, it's a cost thing. It's a money thing. Nice. Keep justifying your moronic posts.

As for the 100 meter guy, he has to train. Alot. That costs money. The countries who host the summer games, they pay alot of money to host them.

And, the cost for the people who want to play the games (hocky players, skaters, skiers, nordic events) can be funded by the athlete's country.

Keep up the hypocrisy my friend. You rock.

I realize many of you couldn't care less about the Winter Olympics, and I understand why. They're dominated by a handful of wealthy nations, which tend to compete in sports beloved by rich people. Not a lot of kids in poor neighborhoods go skiing on the weekends, and despite what John Candy did for Caribbean bobsledding in Cool Runnings, the Jamaicans were an exception to the rule. Though the Winter Olympics are a global event, they disproportionally favor the Northern Hemisphere. It's the G-8 summit of athletics, and it has faced repeated calls to be abolished.

Most places with hard weather either those who live their prosper or leave.

It's an opinion peace:

I don't expect those of you in warmer climates to appreciate that moment, let alone the Winter Olympics. It's most likely sunny where you live right now, and you've probably got a nice tan. To those of us from northern latitudes, winter is our annual burden. It's dark, cold and downright miserable. But for two weeks, every four years, we revel in it, praying for snow, freezing temperatures and glassy ice that just begs for a slap shot. So let me enjoy my Winter Olympics before I slink back into the slush. You'll have your games in two years. I need this now.

Translation: if your a country that doesn't participate then your skin color is different and you are poor. Oh, and I don't like the winter olympics.

But yea coming into the ongoing thread during a heavy posting moment cause the game just ended and posting something someone might disagree with is a big deal at the mane now. Much like going into a game day thread and having any opinion of the game other than the one that is currently vogue.


But to those I respect here I was just being facetious with my OPINIONS of the winter games and them sucking and being pointless and I'm sorry to those that rubbed wrong.

I stand behind my posts. It's implied racisim that is grounded down to numbers and nothing more. You base it on an opinion peace by someone who doesn't like the winter games.

It comes down to values. If you value the sport, you spend money on it. Period. If you don't value the sport, you don't spend money on it. Period. Countries like China value the games and send athletes.
