What a game huh, last 2 min when you guys tied it up before we got the open net goal the entire bar was standing. I think everyone spilled there beers when we won. Hockey at its best if you ask me. You put up a damn good fight and all I can say is Crosby is an artist with a puck and a stick.

I have to admit that Miller was outstanding in net last night in the USA victory over Canada. Team Canada needs some tweeking and tightening if it wants to make it to the medal rounds. We are up against Germany, which will be no walk in the park concidering its game that went to a shoot-out with the Swiss last week.

And even if we win that game we are immediately up against Ovechkin and his buddies from Russia. I honestly feel very nervous of Canada's outcome at these Olympic Hockey games.

Its certainly possible Riley. I think we have one more game against Slovakia before we get there though. This could get real tense after last nights game against Russia...what a difference in the way the Canadian team played versus the first game...

As for the Canadian Women's Team....YAY! Well done! Another Gold! smile

Congrats to your women team. Silver is still a nice color. I heard the Canada vs. Russia game was a good one. We need to get through Finland then we're gunning it for the gold.

A member replied to a group pm a few weeks ago, and in ending his note advising us to stay cool, and be prepared for what comes down recovery road, he said "Swords up, Knights". I find this idea refined, and elegant. Gentlemanly, if there is such a word.

In contrast, a Russian noted the other day, after the game, that the Canadians came at the Russians like "gorillas coming out of cage". While lacking a certain elegance, and refinement, the approach was effective.

Perhaps the winner should be decided based on whoever can be the most refined, and elegant gorilla around? grin

The BBC coverage is great, live overnights and big catchup re-runs.

I caught the Canadian Curling gold on the re-run half an hour ago. For Ice Hockey, going to have to record it because of exams, but will have to stay off the internet and watch it before I leave for college.

We'll have to make peace with just that Women's Luge Gold as the highlight for the UK. laugh
