We have indeed! Ive survived despite this bloody hangover. I brought it on myself thinking that a bunch of over-paid no-talent canadian NHL players could actually win.

But dont worry, the girls semi and finals are this week, and I know they will bring home the gold medal.

The "Devil's fans" and everyone else have seen the last of Brodeurs Olympic career. He was absolutely brutal, he was diving OUT of the net and swinging at the puck like he was playing baseball. I can't believe Babcock didn't pull him after the 3rd goal, Luongo starts in net the rest of the way. If you are a Devil's fan you are done like diner in the NHL playoffs, brodeur's age is catching up with him this year, he is no longer an elite goalie. I guess that is why the Devil's traded for Kovalchuk because they can't rely on brodeur to steal games anymore and they need more offense to make up for it.

That being said, I liked the way Canada dominated puck possession and shots. If Canada and the US meet again I am confident that Canada will win. The US was the lucky team tonight, that is why the NHL plays best of 7.

I agree for the most part. Canada did dominate parts of the game, but even so we were not playing well, and having three penalties (two back-to-back) gave the US the opportunity to score (and they did).

Miller did a great job. Brodeau should have been pulled after the second period. But hey, maybe we can still pull it off - just going the long way around playing germany and russia - hope the guys can be more consistent.

Who do you think they will put in goal with germany?

Exactly. If they weren't the best, they would be sorely lacking for an excuse. That's why they are so obsessive and depressed after a loss.

Of course, Spain also has a good chance this time, after being the perennial disappointments in the Cup; they appear to be in a weak division and should be able to get to the quarterfinals again...

The dutch should reach the quarterfinals too, they're in a group with Denmark, Japan and Cameroon. I think this group is comparable in strength to Spain's.

Oi...That's a lot of Canadians crying in their beer.

Vancouver (AFP) - Canada's shock Olympic ice-hockey loss to the United States was the most viewed sports program in Canadian television history, the Winter Olympic broadcast media consortium announced on Monday.

The group said 21.5 million people, 64.3 percent of Canada's population, watched at least some portion of the game on Sunday.

Tou're right, threads should either stay on topic, or be hijacked to make meaningless banter about sex or to bash American's silverware misuse. I for one promise to never change my fork and knife from one hand to another ever again.
BTW you still need to post the naked Wilmore pics to the photogallary so everybody can see them. If not, I'll ask CB to post the ones you sent him!

Tis very true. Certainly the talk of victoria from timmies to doggie world. People are shocked and dismayed that canada has played so badly to date - expectations were so high for the mens; and people are incredibly disappointed.....
