You Americans can have the women's gold we will take the one that matters

Sexist and distinctly un-Canadian-like. So women's hockey doesn't matter, eh?

Wow, apparently people are still wildly sexist in Canada. Tell me why men's activities "matter" more than women's again?

Someone beat me to it.

He's not implying that, but there really is no competition in Women's Hockey, it comes down to USA and Canada every time. Women's Hockey just doesn't matter as much as the Men's for most Canadians, that's the reality. We will cheer them on, but people don't drop everything like they do for the Men. Not sure if USA feels the same however.

It only doesn't matter if USA wins. If Canada wins you guys will certainly matter.

He can imply what he wants. The Americans can make all the generalizations they like.

This game is tied, anything to push that truth to the back-burner.

Truth. I remember all the noise the Canadians made after they won in Vancouver in women's hockey. It was a big flipping deal.

Looks like these teams are competing pretty well to me...

How many of you noticed how the linesman looked back at the blue line and then skated right into the Canadian defensemen? That almost led to The US getting the clincher. That was pretty dirty.

I'm at work so I can't watch this game, are any of the members of either men's team there to cheer on the women's teams? I think it would be really cool if the guys showed up for a little solidarity.

Quotes like this are just ridiculous and unnecessary.

Only those that believe in conspiracies.

They haven't shown any. I would hope at least Kessel is there, but all the team would be better.

Yes. Both teams. Canadian men care about Canadian women, and all women.

But you're ok with someone saying that men's hockey is "the one that matters". You've got some pretty mixed up priorities.

Overheard in the office: "There's no chance anyone in Canada is actually working right now." #CANvsUSA

When it comes to Canada vs USA, yes. But when either of those teams play anyone else, it is quite one sided. But Canada vs USA in women's hockey is always a fantastic game.

I'll admit, I get a lot more invested in the men's hockey. Not because I am sexist, but it's because it's mostly NHL players. It makes the men's tournament more special for that reason. If it were all amateurs in Men's Olympic hockey like it used to be, I wouldn't be as invested in it. I think that's all really anyone is getting at when talking about the Men's hockey here.

I wouldn't say that was intentional. Would have been very unfortunate and a bad way to lose had thta puck gone in though.

If you haven't seen the men's players at this game, you're watching the wrong feed.

Re-read my original post, I clearly stated that I'm at work and not watching the game. Which is why I asked if the guys were there to cheer on the women's teams. I legitimately wanted to know because I can't see it.
