VÄRLDENS BÄSTA KARLSSON

Sweden - Finland 2-1
USA - Finland 0-5
USA - Canada 0-1

So 4-0 to Sweden?

The US has amazing hockey infrastructure, the second most amount of NHLers after Canada, and the most NHL teams.

Americans won't see it this way though, they are into hockey till they lose, then its like 'yeah, well they care more, we'd beat em at basketball or football.'

That shit is weak sauce

So it was fun having the American media spotlight on hockey for a few days, it was fun watching their talking heads discuss how great their team is this time around, it was fun watching them say 1980 was the most important hockey moment (cough cough 1972), but its over, they stopped caring.

So now you can all go back to discussing gay player distractions and measuring Johnny Football's penls girth.

Damn Canadians calm the phuck down. Keep telling yourself what helps you feel good but the fact is hockey is a niche sport in the USA and apart from people in Minnesota, Michigan and Vermont, no one gives a shit about it. It's like the 8th most popular American sport AT BEST.

Lately, yes, due to the Bulls being relatively mediocre and the Blackhawks being a championship team, but outside of that....MJ did way too much for Chicago with basketball for hockey to counter it.
