I spent some time last night on the Vancouver Olympics live stream.
I was very sad to see how angry and mean people were getting over Canada/USA medals, attitudes and today's hockey game.
There was talk about "owning the podium".
USA would comment on the arrogance of Canadians.
Canadians would comment on the arrogance of Americans.
Phuc (is that not the coolest name EVER??) was telling this other guy to "Go and died!"
That guy is getting nasty about Phuc's broken english and being equally cruel in general.
There was talk about hockey being Canada's game and that we'll show them how it's done.
Talk from the Americans about the "stench" of Canadians.
It was truly horrible.
You know what? It's a bunch of professional, million dollar hockey players just changing up teams for a bit.
Personally, I think that USA has a pretty damn fine goalie who will be tough to put anything past. And I think that Canada has some equally fine players who also know how to play their game.
I hate that this game is taking away from all the other athletes who have worked so hard to get Canada's 25 medals and USA's 36!
All those other medals matter too. And not JUST the gold ones. And NOT just the hockey ones!
Personally, I hope that Canada wins of course. But I don't have anything negative to say about Americans.
I think they have done a great job. They have broken the record for total medals. That is awesome!
And I have friends who are American and I think they are pretty darned awesome!
So good luck to our neighbours today.
May the best over paid professional team win!
