It ended with a BANG. The much anticipated Gold medal hockey game of Team USA vs Team Canada was a nail biter with the Americans tying up the game with less than a minute in regulation time. Sid the Kid, who was criticized by many for not “doing more” scored the winning goal and had non-supporters chanting his name.
The closing ceremonies saw Joannie Rochette carrying the Canadian Flag. Canadian superstars were present en-masse with artists from all across the nation performing before the 60,000 cheering spectators.
Now that the Olympics are over it’s time to look forward to the newness of spring..and your favorite hockey team making the play-offs. It might not be the olympics but play-off hockey is still pretty exciting.
Who do you think will go all the way this year?? Will the Canadiens make it to the play-offs at all??? I think they will…in fact, I think they will make it to the finals. What do you think??
Canada added another Olympic Gold Medal to their haul after the women’s hockey team won over Team USA Thursday night 2-0. But it’s their post-game antics that have most people talking today. Its’ been reported that about an hour after the winners left the ice, they returned. But this time it wasn’t hockey sticks they were brandishing, rather champagne, beer and…..cigars. The team has since apologized for their un-ethical behavior. What do you think?? Should they lose their medal for their less than sportsmanlike behaviour?? Or are people making something out of nothing???
Canada might not “Own the Podium” but they certainly don’t have anything to be ashamed of. As of this morning, Canada stood 4th in the medal standings with 15 medals, including 7 GOLD. Todays Gold Medal Womans hockey game has Team Canada vs Team USA and unless there’s some major mishap, it looks like Canada will be winning Gold on this one as well.
