The only thing better than the USA beating Canada in hockey at the Olympics...
...is living in Canada when the USA beats Canada in hockey at the Olympics.
Listening to the radio this morning, listening to the people at minyan this morning, it's amazing how American I've suddenly become.
All the build-up on the radio before last night's game, Canadian-on-the-street interviews with average, mild-mannered citizens coaxed into proclaiming, "Yeah, we're gonna beat them, eh! This is our game!"
Liquor stores closed in Vancouver yesterday evening, in anticipation of the need to control a rowdy Canadian celebration.
Don Cherry on his show this morning, ranting about the Canadian lines and penalty-killing.
Grumblers second-guessing Team Canada in shul at shacharis.
Radio announcers talking about how they need to stop obsessing over last night's game, and instead need to channel the spirit of the come-from-behind 1972 team.
Headlines like, "Canada in shock after ice hockey loss to the US."
Gotta love it. Happy birthday, Torczyner.
