Win or Lose I think this is a worthy photoshop challenge.

 

 

Bonus points if you make the relative sizes of Kessel, the eagle, and Crosby all true to scale.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

DAMN YOU! Well let me just rephrase that...."Bronze" around his neck :)

 

I'd prefer Crosby crying his eyes out because he doesn't have a medal.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Ha even better, notice the general theme among sid haters is that he is perpetually crying.

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


Not sexist, they don't even allow hitting, I don't care to watch it if they aren't going to allow the women the same rules the men have, I don't find it entertaining to watch when every brush up is a penalty.

Sticking to my original predictions made at the start of the tourney.

Usa - gold
Sweden - silver
Canada - bronze

Looking forward to an epic Canada vs Finland rematch on Saturday! It should be a great appetizer for the gold medal game on Sunday!

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I am Canadian and for the first time, I actually feel bad for the US team.

 

in 2010 it was easy not to feel bad after hearing the US team placed a Canadian flag in the middle of the dressing room to walk over before going on and coming off the ice. I do not know who came up with that idea but it was not very smart. 

 

4 years later and water under the bridge we meet again. Unlike the round robin game I think the US team played significantly better and deserved this win. But as Don Cherry has said in the past the hockey gods were in Canada's corner. The empty net post to surviving the first minute of OT (how did that puck did not go in?) 

 

So as a typical Canadian, Sorry Eh. See you again in 4 years.


"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Small correction ... I think that was 2002 in Salt Lake City.

Utah ... go figure.

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.


Thank you. I'm a fairly regular poster here and I think I'm a fairly level headed and open minded person, so for people to start calling me sexist because I don't enjoy women's hockey is nonsensical. People should know better by now, I hope this is just Olympic tensions built up and not what people actually believe.

You didn't say you don't enjoy women's hockey, you said it doesn't matter.  If you leave things open for interpretation, people will interpret them.

Talk about beating a dead horse.  Everyone knows what was said. 

 

He clarified after that when he said it "doesn't matter" he meant "it doesn't matter as much to him"

 

Let it go...

No Captain America, but not bad given the time I was willing to put into it.

Scroll up? darkmanx expressed what was meant(which seemed obvious for many of us), Euro acknowledged and thanked and we moved on....

Don't know about Womens hockey but in terms of Women I think Curling (that Russian team :clap: ) and Figure Skating (Tessa  :yahoo: ) are way more interesting for obvious reasons.

 

As for tomorrow I'm freaking pumped two superb rivalries between the top 4 hockeynations it doesn't get better than that. To best honest I'm getting more and more the feeling the US fans are REALLY underestimating the goliath that Canada is not sure if that's a smart thing to do.

 

Looking forward to Sindy versus captain Backes
