Apparently you haven't learned about the Canadian women's team putting a 10 - 0 ass beating on Sweden. And, yesterday I got to see Canada vs. Czech Republic (in person) and if you still want to say Canada can't play hockey, I call you liar.
Blue Monday! There is at least ONE redeeming advantage to living in Utah afterall eh?
Canada does not look so good, BUT... We wait and see. Czechs, Swedes and Russians lookin good, USA ain't half bad neither, but I can't give my prediction on who wins gold because I have no idea. NOW, if Sweden had Floppa, shucks...
Canada hasn't had a gold in Hockey since the fifties. Russia has a big pile of them, USA has a few too. I don't know about the other countries but it's not like it really matters anyway, all those European and Canadian players all play in the NHL anyway.
And I must admit y'all are right about Women's Hockey, can you say "boring"? I watched the last few minutes of the Canada/Sweden women's game and it was horribly pathetic and lop-sided. But women in NASCAR, I can't tell the difference.
I am actually rather shocked at the attitudes many people seem to have on women's sports. Maybe I shouldn't have, but I guess I expected more from some of our liberal high minded gents here. Is it this elitist attitude that explains why the women's teams in some sports from European powerhouses are so weak? European nations dominate bobsledding, with the US not even getting on the radar screen, but when it comes to women, the US take gold. Why? There are reasons why some nations are better than others in certain events. Are there reasons why some nations aren't as good in the same events when women are competing?
