What the hell!

I was listening to it on my drive home and every few minutes it's Goal..... goal..... goal....
Backstrom in.... goal!......goal!!

Way to show up for the most important match Finland!

The U.S.A. are playing like serious world beaters on the other hand. So far, the only team yet to lose if i'm not mistaken.

Damn, I thought Finland would have put up a better fight. Shit, I thought they would win this game.

Interesting note: If the score stays the same and ends with Finland not registering a goal, Ryan Miller will have allowed 5 goals in 5 games to date. ANd 3 of those goals were in 1 game. Ridiculous.

Why would you think Finland could beat them/Miller when Canada couldn't?

And I expect China will continue to improve until they are a force in this sport, like they have become in so many others.
The chinese are good at any sport which requires a athlete to make them selves aerodynamic.

i believe it will take a loooonng time before the chinese crack the top tier (top 12) of international hockey, let alone become a force. indeed, i do think they'll slowly climb the ranks though. more than anything, i think you have to watch out for the swiss and germans to eventually make a push for top 6. the swiss are already close and the germans are simply incredible athletes.

OT - watching women's gold medal curling, and man, the canadian curling fans are embarrassing. a few are chanting the swedish skip's name, others cheer as our own team releases a stone, and even more have clapped for missed canadian shots. i guess this is what happens when hockey fans pretend to be "curling fans".

Could be the Swedish fans chanting the Swedish skip's name, no? Could also be the Swedish fans clapping for the missed Canadian shots? Why assume it's the Canadian fans?

trust me you can tell. first of all the swedes don't clap for canadian misses and you can barely even hear them for good swedish shots...and some canadian misses have been twice as loud so it's pretty obvious it's canadian fans who have little idea what's going on. likewise with the "norberg" they're saying it just like you heckel a goalie in hockey, long and drawn out - obviously not upbeat and cheering.

Game still going on, but it looks like Canada will go through without much problem. At the start of the game it was looking like Slovakia were going to be a handful, but their agressive play fizzled out after about 4 minutes. Canada is just such a well oiled machine. We look like we're playing with 6-7 skaters out there.

Soooooo looking forward to revenge against the Americans. I hope we totally crush them.

Switched the game on just now, and i had to turn it already. The crowd chanting we want USA and Gord Miller says "they want you too Canada" and that numbnut Pierre McGuire says "i don't know about that". Does this guy really think USA doesn't want a showdown with Canada for Gold? Do they realize that there is still 8 minutes left in this game. Does he realize that Canada has already lost to USA?

That was crazy.

I was VERY impressed with Slovakia in this tourney.

They were arguably the 3rd best team in the tourney IMO.

Anyone see Luongo kind of giving it to DEmetra during the handshakes? I gather they must be friendly from being on the Canucks and ROberto's comfortable enough with him to joke about that.
