ask the Russians about silver.. or bronze. The USA team didn't disappoint anyone. It was a great hockey tournament and great fun

Winning a Silver in the Olympic Games is better than anything any of us will probably ever do. Especially you. but ESPECIALLY me.
MrRandom - March 3, 2010, 11:16 pm,
Agreed with TTH. But I can't be the only one who took a little guilty joy at how disappointed some of them looked. Great game though.
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:18 pm,
My favorite part was when they walked past them all with gold medals on a tray. lol
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:19 pm,
that was kinda mean of them. even meaner of me to laugh
DreMagnum - March 3, 2010, 11:30 pm,
No one expected them to finish second though, so I'm still proud of them, they have made hockey more popular in the states, and our national team is only going to get better.
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:31 pm,
Yeah, it was a great game...though I'm a little disappointed with the aftermath. But, hey, we held our own and hockey is Canada's national sport. Maybe if the contest was football...mumble mumble. Personally, I'm waiting for pool to become an Olympic
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:32 pm,
sport. That's when I'll compete. It can't be far off. I mean Curling...mumble mumble.
DreMagnum - March 3, 2010, 11:33 pm,
Curling is the **** though. One of the better sports IMO
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:35 pm,
It is actually more interesting than I thought it would be. I sat and watched it for a while. I think I almost understand how they score it. lol The bald dude representing Canada seemed pretty beast.
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:36 pm,
ya, team martin kicked a**!

closest to the center gets points. for every rock you have closer to the center than your opponents closest rock is a point
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:41 pm,
Why isn't football (the one where you use your hainds) in the Olympics? Would it just be too confusing because of the similar names?
TheTrashHeap - March 3, 2010, 11:42 pm,
A wise old motifaker once said "curling loses something on the TV" but I don't remember which motifaker it was
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:42 pm,
no, because football is an inferior sport.
TheTrashHeap - March 3, 2010, 11:43 pm,
Is football (the one where you don't use your hands) in the Olympics?
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:44 pm,
How's football inferior? It's by far the more masculine sport, requiring more in the way of brute force...and it involves more strategy than hockey.
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:45 pm,
IDK, I only watch the winter olympics
CANADA - March 3, 2010, 11:45 pm,
lol Bart. Im just disturbing ****. they are both great sports
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:46 pm,
I googled the reason. It's not played in enough countries. An olympic sport has to be played in at least 75 nations...and played by women in at least 40.
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:47 pm,
Yeah. Those hockey, Canada, those hockey games on me on the edge of my seat...and I'm not usually a fan.
Bartimaeus - March 3, 2010, 11:52 pm,
My keyboard has a stutter.

When the Roughriders come down to Miami and beat the Saints, I'll admit failure. It's your game, everyone in your country plays it as soon as they can put on skates. You should win the gold. Don't pull a muscle reaching around to pat yourself on the back.
Jmac0585 - March 4, 2010, 9:12 am,
P.S. I don't care about hockey, or any other winter Olympic sport, but I do want my country to win everything, all time. If you think that attitude is wrong, then maybe you should move to a country that engenders that feeling in you.
Jmac0585 - March 4, 2010, 9:15 am,
I do agree whole-heartedly with CANADA, soccer is an inferior sport. The reason Hockey isn't as popular in America as soccer is two fold, The expense of the gear needed to play, and the necessity of ice. Ice is tough to come by in some places @ some times
Jmac0585 - March 4, 2010, 9:17 am,
Soccer, all you need is a cheap, $3 ball, and 21 other A-holes that can't catch, throw, hit, tackle, shoot, or pass AND weren't fast enough for track. Even roller hockey gear is much more expensive.
Jmac0585 - March 4, 2010, 9:18 am,
Wow. I need to calm down. Soccer wishes it was the amsomeness that hockey is.
Bovee - March 4, 2010, 9:29 am,
baised on everything that has been said so far you all must be huge lacrosse fans. cause it is a mix of all of them but better.
