Canada Destroys Russia in Olympic Hockey and I Feel Fine

Team Canada is good
  • I love you guys.

Ok, sorry about my little freakout yesterday, about hockey. In light of Canada’s old fashioned whupping of Russia last night at the Olympics (7-3!), perhaps my anxiety was unwarranted. Now we face… Slovakia? Seriously? Ok.

Now I am going to tempt fate by suggesting an inevitable gold medal rematch with the Americans on Sunday (who face the Finns in the other semifinal). Hey Fate! I have tempted you! The Canadians looked amazing last night, and no matter what happens now, I’m just glad we rose to the occasion against the Russians. Perhaps the most fitting line about last night’s game was from Russian back-up goaltener Ilya Bryzgalov, who said the Canadians “came at us like gorillas from a cage.”

Sigh. All is well with the world.
