I also forgot to mention how interesting I found the Canadian fans booing the US in the Juniors to be. There seems to be real dislike of the US. Meanwhile, when it's Canadians in the US, we mainly react with indifference, or mostly rooting for them. Seems like the Canadians have an inferiority complex, while the US is just "meh" about Canada.
Not really looking forward to the Czech/Canada back-to-back. I guess the important one is to be the Czechs and hope they win a tie-breaker, since Finland gets their bye (Denmark) today.
Reminds me of Montreal fans booing the US national anthem before a game against the Bruins. The Boston fans one upped them and gave Oh, Canada a standing ovation.
Stars and Bruins tomorrow, Dan. I hope your team gets destroyed.
