Honestly, I've never been one for trash talking outside of my own little group of friends watching/playing a game. I tend to think it brings out the worst in people...and parts of this thread are proving my beliefs to be well founded.
It WAS a good game by BOTH teams, a good win for Canada and a tough loss for US. It really bums me out that people have to turn what should be a good-natured and high spirited celebration amongst friends and acquaintances into a childish pissing match. Its disappointing and it sucks the fun out of the whole event, for me at least.
Though, at some point, people are going to have to learn how to take a little ribbing from the opposition, especially when they win.
On another note I will say that I was really, really hoping the US would pull out a win from this one. I wanted redemption for 2010 so badly. The game was so tight that I figured that Benn's goal would be all that was needed. US just couldn't seem to break Canada's defense. I was sweating bullets the whole game haha.
GO SWEDEN! (which is basically like saying "Go Wings!")
