When is it scheduled? This calls for some whiskey and some good old fashioned jingoism.

@Th3_James: I love it when people go out of their way to say they don't care about something, it's hilarious.
 
Canada! I'm going to try and keep my railing against Sidney Crosby to a minimum. I'll be cheering for Heatley, Iginla, and a few of those other dudes who've actually contributed to the proceedings.

only losers like Crosby put up a point-per-game up until the gold medal game (which they've captained their team to) in their first Olympic tournament.

If we play like we did against Russia, it's going to be a good game. It still looks like we are a bit loose at the back .. and if Ryan Miller decides to play Superman again, the D has to tighten up. In any case .. GO CANADA !!

I will be and I will be screaming at the TV for the US to win.  If you shoot the puck out of a cannon it might and I stress might get past Miller.

I am predicting a US win. They have been the best team in the tournament by far even if they don't have the best players.

Canada natrually, I'm Canadian. I'm hoping that it'll be a tight game, IMO tend to be the best when they are a heart stopper. Though a overwhelming domination or comeback are also pretty great.

@DevWil: Oh boy, I can't wait until I find some team stats. Crosby has been a virtual no-show, yet everyone talks about him and not the rest of the damn team that has been making shit happen. Also, Luongo.

if a point-per-game is being a no-show, i wonder what crosby would be like if he was any good at hockey. 
 
i honestly haven't seen any team canada games yet.  i have a bunch of games downloaded from itunes that i haven't gone through yet (i'm spending this semester in ireland where, believe it or not, ice hockey isn't given much TV coverage).  so while i can't directly comment on crosby's play in the tournament,  3+3 in 6 games doesn't happen if you are a "no-show". 
 
edit: fixed a silly-stupid typo kinda thing.

I do not like Crosby, he lived where I live and when you come into my area the sign has a huge "HOME OF SYDNEY CROSBY!!" thing on it, and it really makes me angry.

I am hopefully gonna watch it. I might be out on the slopes at that time, but I can always stop to eat and watch the game. I am rooting for the U.S.A but I will be glad for whoever wins.

Go Canada!!!! 14 gold would be an all time record for the Winter games. The other 13 golds are nice and all. But in the end, there's one medal that matters far more for Canada at these games, and that's the hockey gold. Let's see it boys!!! Get it done!!!

Luongo can't let in any soft goals and will have to stand on his head pretty much to keep up with a hot Miller. 
Game is at 1pm MST and its 7:45am at the moment. 
Real question is, is it to early to start drinking?

I'm not a hockey fan... but I enjoy watching hockey.  Does that make sense?  I prefer watching it at the event, live whatever you want to call it.  Anyway I'll probably watch this, it seems to be the talk with some of my friends.
