I can't believe the USWomen and Men decided to tank the games for dates with The Dallas Maverick Point Guard and Pam Anderson as well as a 3 month supply of Molson. <img border="0" alt="[pint]" title="" src="graemlins/pint.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[laugh]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh.gif" />

The Canadians had the deepest team in the Olympics tournament and as the short turnaround time between contests began to take a toll, that depth really made the difference.<br /><br />I don't think it is any secret the Canadians should have won a gold medal some time between 1956 and 1998. <br /><br />So, good for them <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" /> <br /><br />At the same time, US hockey gained some real respect in these games. Finishing #2 in a tournament featuring the national teams of Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic, Finland, etc... is nothing to look down your nose at.<br /><br />At the beginning of the games I thought 6 teams had realistic gold medal hopes, and I had the US at #3 with the Swedes, right behind Canada and Russia.<br /><br />They bettered that mark. <br /><br />Once again, congratulations to Canada who know own both men's and women's gold medals.<br /><br />The Olympics might not have started out well for Canada, but it sure ended with a bang, eh?

Bulldog - You're an educated hockey many as well <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" /> A silver medal for the US men's hockey team is quite a mark. There used to be a time when the Americans were an afterthought. <br /><br />With repeatedly successful performances in World Cup and Olympic play, the US is quickly becoming a legitimate threat at every level. Even the junior men's hockey team has been improving steadily in recent tournament.<br /><br />American hockey has certainly come a long way.

OK to be honest Hockey way down on sports to watch list and in DC on a good day its 5th behind Skins,Maryland B Ball,Wizards,Maryland Football, and then its a battle between Hoya B Ball,Caps and the WomeN in Big comfortAble shoes club.<br /><br />If its wasnt for skimpy skirts I would have barely watch it and most of us wont watch it in 4 years because of the time difference.
