I was kinda hoping sweden would score a goal just to make things interesting. All things considered, the olympic hockey was sooooo boring when compared to the 2010 games. If there's any reason I had to root against canada it would be only to have more competition in the world. Canada had something to prove in 2010. The american redemption story was more interesting as well. Now we gotta wait yet another 4 years to see if anyone else can dethrone canada. Full disclosure, if it was finland vs canada....I might have cheered just a tad bit more for finland but I'd still be happy with canada winning.
I actually don't mind cheering for the U.S. either. I'd rather see the game grow there as well and ppl in the states get excited about hockey. However, phil kessel + jvr - bobby ryan = death to america
Not saying I agree with the banter above. I think both of you are right. For example, if Canada had given the bobby ryan treatment to let's say Kyle turris....I think I would cheer for someone else.
