This is like a "nation's tears" level of weak bitterness.Marco Sturm!!!
Not really.Worst week in Canadian sports history?
Marci Sturm is a Bruins cult hero. He scored the GWG in the definitive game that made me a Bruins fan again. He also makes a fucked up face upon scoring. You’re goddamned right I’m thrilled he’s in the gold medal game. Sturm Face is something for a reason. And now I’m watching Game 6 highlights on dafoomie for the next however long.This is like a "nation's tears" level of weak bitterness.
As for worst week. Canada is 2nd in the medal count. If our NHL guys lost then, that would be bad.
These guys list by taking too many penalties. Canada hockey announcers make YES look understated and neutral, so we almost are asking for it. I think 4 years ago I said we needed to enjoy it while it lasted since we are just one of the hockey nations now.
Yeah we’re just not insufferable about hockey. We’re insufferable about a lot of things. But goddamnit, hockey is not one of them!Calling this the worst week in Canadian sports history would be like calling 2013 the worst October in Red Sox history. I get some Americans are really happy to have finally beaten the Canadians at hockey, but this is nothing too bad for us. The USA has far more resources, more kids playing hockey etc. It is matter of time until they have the upper hand, and should have it already, and looking at world juniors maybe they do.
As a Canadian sports fan this is fantastic. I remember as a kid Canadian olympic heroes didn't even win medals. in 1976 we won one gold one of three medals at the winter Olympics. Then we went with totals of 2, 4,5, medals. We are only country to host and not get a gold and we did it twice in 76 and 88. Canada used to be the Cleveland Browns of the Olympics.
TV sign off used to play "oh Canada" and show a guy that won a silver medal high jumping. Go to 1:18 of this video. I mean a silver fucking medal.
It was definitely tongue in cheek with "worst week ever" but 3 of the bigger events (is curling big? it should be) was a rough time even with all the down-ballot success.Calling this the worst week in Canadian sports history would be like calling 2013 the worst October in Red Sox history.
