Defending what is yours? Lol... thanks for validating my post with a completely moronic statement. Let it go already. You guys started a great sport and it's spread internationally. That's enough to be proud of without embarrassing yourself with proclamations of ownership. It just sounds really, really dumb when you guys say that. Outsiders perspective. Take it or leave it. Hopefully you leave it, because I always get a good laugh whenever one of you says that. Kinda like the way I laugh when I see my two nephews bickering over a toy.


SO you wouldn't say the USA own basketball? Without a doubt I would say they do

Basketball was started in the United States. That doesn't designate ownership of a sport though. No one country owns any sport. Is their heavy American influence in basketball? Yes, but there is a growing influence coming from Europe. A sport is for the enjoyment of playing it and watching it, not owning it.

Actually, I didn't know this until just minutes ago, but basketball was technically invented by a Canadian born PE teacher back in the late 1890's. Strange fact of the day. But anyways...

No... It's a game that many, many countries compete in. Maybe it did start here... but I don't feel any kind of sense of ownership about it. You're starting to muddle the "It's our game" and the "we own this game" statements.

Saying "We own this game" implies dominance. And you guys can certainly claim that.

Saying "It's our game" implies that it's your game and nobody elses.

At the very least... the second statement sounds very, very selfish and insecure. Like I said, I'm just saying that it sounds really dumb when you guys claim ownership of hockey. And you guys do it ALL THE TIME.

Until 2014 we undoubtedly own the sport.

Before today you could bring up arguments about why we dont, but right now we're the olympic champs. And have the most players in the league, and pretty much every team in the last decade that has won a cup has heavy canadian influence.


Did Sweden own the sport until today?

Can we all promise that the second the puck is dropped tomorrow there won't be another Olympic thread for the next 4 years? Please?

Would you rather have Crosby or Olympic threads?

Yay lets argue over the Olympics!!!

Jesus, guys...it's the freaking Olympics. I've never seen people get so riled up over figure skating and curling in my life.

Canada won a lot of gold...we get it, congratulations. But to gloat about f'ing figure skating....wow.

The only medal the mattered to me was the men's hockey gold.

If this was the only medal we got this Olympics I would be happy. The 14 golds record is just a bonus.

Actually, the first form of ice hockey was played by First Nations in Eastern Canada prior to European contact.
