PRE-GAME RANT

Well, fresh off a big win over Germany (8-2), Canada now heads into another huge game. The Americans definitely were a huge test (which unfortunately Canada failed), however you have to wonder if the Russians are going to be an even tougher team to play against. It’ll be interesting to see how the Canadians handle what is possibly the scariest top line at the Olympics (with possible exception to the newly formed Staal, Crosby, Iginla line). This should be a high flying, exciting game, and I’m hoping Roberto Luongo will be up to the task. This will also be another step in the always-exciting Crosby vs. Ovechkin series.

Prediction: 5-4 Canada

TEAM CANADA ROSTER

Monday Morning Standings, Olympic Edition

Finland Figure Skating...lets not forget to give props to the other countries in these Olympics too.

Well, I am really enjoying these Olympics. Canada is doing well regardless what the media or “experts” are saying (or how the Men’s hockey team is doing). Lots of 4th and 5th place finishes, and while they don’t equal medals, they are something to be proud of. Melissa Hollingsworth finishing 5th (pretty damn good if you ask me), and then crying because she felt she let her country down? Good grief. I bet the athletes can’t wait for the next Olympics where its not here and they don’t have this crazy pressure on them to medal. Plus the snafu’s of the early parts of the games are causing some foreign media to dub these games the worst ever? As far as I’m concerned they can eat a dick. Based on what I have seen/read, the fan support of these games is amazing and more than makes up for a couple of hiccups.

And hey, at least we are kicking ass in curling! Ladies curling is becoming a favorite of mine.

As for NHL standings, they are the same as last week.
