And So It Begins.

December 28, 2009

The World Junior Championship kicked off on Boxing Day with a 16-0 blowout by Canada over the Latvians. It was worse than the Kazakhstan game I went to in Ottawa last year. I was one of only a few thousand people still standing up after the tenth goal. I love it. I think the reason I love watching Baby Canada obliterate smaller, unfortunate teams that no one knows their location is that I rarely get to see this on a daily basis with my team. The Ottawa Senators are shit. That’s why  I take so much pride in my Baby Canadians, cause I know they’ll win for me. Reliability.

  • Gabriel Bourque had seven points in the game against Latvia. He tied two other players for this record. Huge.
  • Taylor Hall madness has started. Oh, how I’m excited for this. Johnny Taylor Fever.
  • Jordan Eberle returns. Two goals the other night. He’s going on the back of my jersey.
  • Patrice Cormier gets the ‘C’.
  • Windsor Spitfires take over Canada. 3 Spits on the team.
  • Ryan Ellis is still boss. No surprise there.
  • Oh, and, that Jake Allen kid? I’m going to marry him.
  • Jared Cowan makes the cut. Represent.
  • The Other Schenn gets his crack at Gold. Maybe Luke will shut the fuck up one of these days and let Brayden have his moment.
  • OH, HUGE NEWS. BRANDON MCMILLIAN MADE THE TEAM. That’s right. Tyler Myers may not be on the team this year, but his best friend is.
  • Switzerland tonight. It’s already 2-0.
  • GO CANADA GO!
  • Oh look, Kadri just scored. WOOO. 3-0
  • JORDAN EBERLE. 4-0
