You did your best, couldn't be expected to medal over Canada.
Twas an excellent bout.
What's this about?
If it's Canada it's either about hockey or maple syrup. I'm going with hockey.
Oh right. I just heard the Olympics are still going on. Crosby's a traitor. Penguins should trade him to the Oilers or something now.
FUCK! I MISSED THE HOCKEY!! FUCK!!!
What? I used to play Hockey and know one of the girls on the Aussie team. REAL hockey is far better of course, but even ice hockey is better than no hockey at all and I fucking MISSED IT. *grumbles*
Xiao, real hockey IS ice hockey. Road hockey or field hockey or whatever you're doing is the summer variant.
I can't believe tre kronor lost to anything but Canada (or maybe the yanks). We should've been in the final, or at least the semi-final.
What the fuck are you talking about "real" hockey??? That was as pure a form of the game as you're going to find anywhere else in the world.
I'm proud of the US team, even though half of them were from the New Jersey Devils roster....I'm a huge Pens fan. No one gave them any chance at medal contention, let alone a true shot at the gold. But I guess if anyone had to score the winner, I'm glad it was Crosby and not Ryan Getzlaf. That guy's a douche.
Well considering the US handed team Canada their asses in a preliminary matchup barely 7 days earlier....but tell me the drawers of an entire nation of 33 million weren't soiled when Parise tied it with 24 seconds left. Cool though that Ryan Miller got the tourny MVP. He'll get a standing O tomorrow night at the Igloo.
Real hockey as in hockey on land, the original form of the game. Its pretty popular here I don't know about overseas though.
I was a damn good goalie back in the day, and my love of the game has never faded. Aussies who pay attention to the state cricket teams might recognize the name of my trainer: George Bailey.
('Back In The Day' translating to 'Before That Bitch Broke My Arm With A Hockey Stick', mind you. Kinda puts a girl off.)
Saying "real" hockey is the original lame land version and not ice hockey is like saying "real" vampires are actually bad-asses and not the daytime shimmery kind.
I've already forgotten whatever point I was trying to make, but Canada sucks.
That's hilarious. What a great way to solidify your point.
For some reason I get dirty looks from certain folks when I refer to them as little America and Canadia.
'original lame land version' => 'bad-asses'
'ice hockey' => 'daytime shimmery kind'
I think you got your point backwards (unless you're a twilight fan), but I tend to agree with the above. Always liked hockey, but chronic back troubles and a lack of general coordination as a kid prevented me from playing.
Not real quick on the uptake, are you Charonte?
Niiiiiiice. I swear, I ought to do a quotefile for you guys, it'd be fucking hilarious mixed with concentrated awesome.
A more appropriate, less Xiao-feeding analogy might be that saying land hockey is more badass, intense, and exciting than ice hockey is like saying American Football is a rougher sport than Rugby.
It's just not true.
Just to clarify, "land" hockey is field hockey to most of you right?
That's what I'm assuming. A sport that only women play is the "real" version? ??
