You know the schedule:
Sweden and ya boy, The King, vs. Finland at 7 a.m.
Then the entree: USA vs. Canada at noon.
Winners play for the gold medal Sunday, losers play for the bronze Saturday.
Gotta say, I’m not buying this idea that the Americans are favored. I give them a very good chance to win the game, but I think Canada should be the favorite. I don’t think either team has faced an opponent even close to the cailber of the one they will face today.
And I also don’t buy this idea that Sid Crosby can’t find linemates. I think he’s due to bust out. The Americans better be careful with him, IMO. And they should remember the feeling of the photo above, as if they need more motivation.
And they should wear the jerseys with the USA diagonally on the front, not that stupid Nike shield.
