    I thought of you sweet when I looked at the standings!

    Congrats team USA!!! Great game.

    One more game Canada, then I can stop being a nervous wreck for awhile! I looked at the tickets for the final game last week, they were $200 per ticket. They were scalping today for $1000 and up per ticket. The scalpers lost their shirts because all the Canadians had their tickets already, most of them bought them as soon as they came availabe before it was even decided.

    Oh, yeah, my 'Nucks had a kick-butt December. Let's hope they ride this all the way to the end (and DON'T meet Chicago in the 2nd round again!!)

    3-0 Canada going into the 3rd.

    Oh. My. G-
    Epic choke.
    These poor kids, up 3-0 and now it is 5-3...5 unanswered goals in the 3rd period of the gold medal match?

    My heart is breaking for them. Ugh.

    Ok, it's taken me a night (and a Canuck's win ) to digest this. All I can say is, good game, Russia! They really were the come-back kings in this tournament, and to score 5 goals in the 3rd after being down 3-0 just shows their grit and never-quit attitude. As much as I am feeling bad for the Canadian team, I have a great admiration for this young Russian team.

    There's always next year!

    If I was a smart better I'd have put my money on Russia and I'll go on record to say that next year Sweden will win...

    My rationale:

    Last year the games were in Sask and they were going to the US for this year. (And US won)
    This year the games were in Buffalo and next year they're going to be in Russia. (And Russia won)
    When the game is in Russia it will be followed by Sweden.

    Just trying to make light of it all.


    Also.. I'm loving the 24/7 Penguins vs Capitals: Road to Winter Classic series!

    Team Russia has definitely been the "comeback kids" the entire tournament. When it came down to it, they played harder in the end. Congrats to them!

    My heart is breaking for the Team Canada however...

    I don't think I ever saw a professional hockey player having quite as much fun during a game as Ovechkin did on New Year's Day. It was a pleasure to see a jaded pro take that much joy in the game. The win helped too I'm sure.

    I was just checking for tix for the February Heritage Classic in Calgary. None left.
