Yeah, I totally agree with you on that, Jeff. When I heard that story, I was thought to myself, "you fucking douchebags!" It's important to have confidence in yourself, but actions speak louder than words. It's not just a fucking cliche. Settle it on the ice.
The story reminded me of Cheryl Miller at the 2002 FIBA World Championships when she insisted that nobody could touch the US. The Americans talked a lot of trash at that tourny, too. As die hard basketball fans know, the US lost more than once in that tournament. If I'm not mistaken, they didn't even win a medal.
