They beat the USA, but you got to give it them.

Re: Team Canada: Who Else Is Happy For Them?

I don't really care for hokey, but this team seems to personify what people love about Canada
Humble, understated and fair. This is rare in today's athletes

The whole team isn't like that. We just don't let the bad seeds near the camera

Re: Team Canada: Who Else Is Happy For Them?

I am. I was rooting for them.

The only thing that would have made me happier would have been if Sweden had won.

Behind you one million percent Vicky D! You will prevail In Jesus Name. Amen.

Hockey needed US as champion , thus the sport could be back on ESPN or FOX . Now it will remain in the shadow , which it is a shame

For me it does not realy make a difference. I don't care for hockey.

I just like the Canadian story.
A perfect end to the Olympic games for Canada, winning in holywood-scripted fashion

Canada started the games with the modest goal of winning the first gold medal on canadian soil, ended up winning the most gold medals of any country, the last being in their national sport.

Re: Team Canada: Who Else Is Happy For Them?

Have to be happy for them considering how well the previous times they hosted went. USA doesnt have to win every time. It was good that they just managed to avert another miracle on ice or the US media would have jumped on it and done it to death for a day, then moved onto the next news sensation. This win means a hell of a lot more to Canada than it ever would to the small American hockey market. It should never have been that close for such a talented squad, but in the end they got it done eh.

Hockey will survive without the US as its "champion". Their teams win the Cup every year, if thats not enough, too bad.

I am happy for the Canadians.

Dont be so bitter. It's not like they get to win so many golds in other global sporting events.

Re: Team Canada: Who Else Is Happy For Them?

Yeah, I was bummed the US lost, but it's hard to hate on Canada. (Then again like half my family is Canadian and I'm not a hardcore hockey fan, so maybe I'm not typical).

Miller was amazing though. He kept us in it.

Cool. I didn't know that.

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
