    Well, at the very least, Canada took the opportunity to use the Olympic platform to further their quasi-touristy self-promotion, v. reinforce the internationalist approach of earlier games.

    Jeez. Give it a rest, Canada. We know where the Olympics were held in 2010. Not every closing ceremony display needs to remind us.

    Canada had to play the qualifier round, then had to play against Russia (strong team), and then would have had to play Sweden (also a strong team) had Slovakia not pulled off a surprisingly strong showing.
    Ah, ok. Thanks for the explanation.

    *not confused anymore*

    Congratulations to the Canadian hockey team.
    The game was great!
    Now Ryan Miller and Lindy Ruff can come back to Buffalo and be part of the same team.
    Go Sabres!
    Let's go, Buffalo!!!!!!!!!!

    As a Canadian living in America, I can attest to the fact that Canada needs to use every opportunity it can to help the US learn more about their neighbors to the north!

    Oh Canada!

    The gold medal hockey game was amazing, and I don't just say that because I'm Canadian! it was just such a close and thrilling game, that's the way the sport should be.

    I'm sure there are better ways to educate than through distracting self-promotion. I didn't see many legitimate factoids about Canada or its national identity, beyond commercialized, touristy celebrity promos.

    Eh?
