Check out the comments in the last few posts to see some pretty sweet comments from, what I'm guessing, are some Canadian internet trolls who were acting, honestly, like a bunch of dumb Americans.
My guess is somebody linked this site on a message board, and a whole bunch of Canadian idiots stopped by. Either way, one comment I made was that America didn't lose in these Olympics, and to prove it, to check out how Ryan Miller was received when he walked into Sidney Crosby's house for his first NHL appearance in Pittsburgh.
The Penguins fans, (who generally I hate like poison) showed true class, rising as one to thank Miller for his fantastic performance in the games.
Kudos to the Penguins fans for just plain old doing things right.
So, to those commenters, (not like they are still around:)
Toldja so, you pricks.
Also, your bacon is ham.
And don't get all pissed off if this is your first time here. I've been on the record numerous times both on this blog and on much bigger, better hockey blogs about how much I love Canada, and Canadians. I will say this though- if you leave a hateful comment on a blog, and don't leave a name, you're a spineless turd.
Either way, Miller's reception on enemy ice was just another bit of evidence that this tournament, (particularly the two USA/Canada games) now rank among one of the biggest and most important wins for hockey in the post-lockout era, alongside the establishment of the Winter Classic, the double-hat-trick Ovie vs Sid game in the playoffs and game six of the Bruins-Canadiens in the 2008 playoffs.
Hockey in America is officially back.
Which all things considered, is kind of a moot point, right now.
Tonight's Bruins/Canadiens game was a goddamn bust.
