United States Done in By Sid The Kid
So over the weekend, Craig and I setup a Monday deadline for a recap on the Olympic men’s hockey final between Canada and the United States.

If before the semifinals of the Olympic men’s hockey tournament, you were asked which team would cruise into the gold medal game, smart money would be on Canada, right?

The Puck Drops on Men's Olympic Hockey
I love the Winter Olympics. I really do. One of my earliest sporting memories is watching the “Battle of the Brians” between Brian Boitano and Bryan Orser in figure skating at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary.
