Day Eleven — A Breather
Beyond the ice dancing finals, there really is not that much on the docket today. Which is a good thing, because yesterday was nuts. Not the least reason why is that USA-USA-USA v Canada game. That lived up to the billing. A positively frenetic game.
And it isn’t over for USA Hockey. The wimmin positively embarassed Sweden in the semifinal this afternoon, 9 to 1. Canada v Finland right about now on CNBC. Right now, CAN 3:0 FIN in the late second period. If that holds up, it will be USA v Canada — another headline matchup… this time, for hardware.
So some time for evaluation. And the Canadians finally own up to the fact that — no — they will not top the medal table, notwithstanding their fancy-shmancy slogan. “Yes We Can” is in a run for its money against “Own The Podium” as the worst empty saying since “Mission Accomplished.”
Meanwhile: Bode Freaking Miller has a matched set of medals to take home to New Hampshaah. Maybe this will make him into something less than a prick. Time will tell.
