Bring on the Semi’s.

January 1, 2010

That game last night? Canada USA? It was crazy. They were down 4-2, I went and put on my lucky Canada sweater that I got for Christmas, and the entire game turned around. I now know what I’m going to wear everyday until the gold medal game. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a game like that. Dates way back to the Canada/Russia semi-final last year. Last minute heroics is what we do, and we did it. One thing that bothered me was that after Hamonic’s goal was disallowed, the Canadian fans at the game were throwing garbage on this ice. Please, you’re making the rest of us look bad.

  • Pierre McGuire has some sort of obsession with dirty pond water.
  • Jordan Eberle and I are getting married this summer. The boy’s heroics have stolen my heart.
  • When time came around for the shootout, I was lacking so much oxygen from not breathing, I thought I was going to pass out and miss it.
  • Jake Allen sorta gimped out after he stopped Schroeders shot. He went to run to the bench and celebrate, but then decided that doing a huge belly flop and sliding half way down the ice would be more fun.
  • If the gold medal game is HALF as good as this one was, I’m never going to complain again in my life
  • My Jordan Eberle jersey is 4-0.
  • I was actually glad they disallowed the Hamonic goal. The shoot out was crazy.
  • Tyler Johnson and Jordan Eberle were named Player of the Game for each player’s respective team. I’ll be having a double wedding with these two, if that’s at all legal.
  • Let’s go CANADA!!!! Semi-Finals here we come!

And So It Begins.

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.
  • Oh look, Kadri just scored. WOOO. 3-0
