Man I wish it was 5pm PST already, because I am pumped up for this game big time!
Here's a video I took from O Canada at the start of this years World Juniors in Saskatoon....
Some memories to maybe get your blood going?
Gord Miller has apparently always been bad at play-by-play.
Painful painful painful. Get me in that booth. Or get any other guy from the BCHL calling those games. Sheesh.
It would be interesting to hear the banter in the Bulldogs dressing room today.
I'm pretty sure I know which team Frank Slubowki, Brody Lynott, Ryan Corbiell, Frank Riddle, Tyler Berkholtz,David Dziurzynski, Mitch and Mark MacMillan, Johnny Rogic, Warren Muir, Trent Dorais, Sam and Josh Mitchell, Kevin Ross and Robert Lindores are cheering for.
And I'm pretty sure I know which team Casey Bailey, Matt Hatch, Jeff Reppucci, Nick Cecere, Tye Lewis, and Scott Lewan are cheering for.
It would be interesting to hear the "chirping" back and forth between the two sides. And even more interesting to see if any bonds with teammates were so tight that someone might forsake country for teammate and cheer for "his" side.
I'm confident in Team Canada, and I'm REALLY confident in the rabid Canadian fans at Sask place.
Quite frankly, I'm a little worried about the American squad. They out played Canada for 90% of the game on New Years Eve in my opinion. They kinda reminded me of the Bulldogs actually - always skating, always flying, just simply in a different gear than Canada was.
If that's the same deal tonight - there won't be a record breaking 6th straight gold medal for Canada, unless the crowd is just that amazing, or the goal tending steals the game for them.
They must be MUCH better.
GO CANADA GO.
