Canadian Bronze

It’s hard to see Canada go for only third best, the bronze medal, and I know I’m being way too unrealistic and just plain silly. I want Canadian gold every year, but of course it can’t be. There’s some mighty fine teams that show up, great teams, and they want the same thing.

Regardless, our boys played the Finns this afternoon for the bronze (Russia and Sweden go for the big one), and yes indeed, Canada captured the medal with their convincing 4-0 win. I’m very proud of them. I’m proud of them for the way they came back almost all the way in dramatic fashion the other night against the Russians, I’m proud of them for once again showing the world our skill in this great game, and I’m proud of them for winning today.

They won because they’re Canadians with big hearts and great skill and pride, and I say thanks to these kids for giving us such unreal entertainment. Next year we’ll go for gold again, we all know they can do it, and I can’t wait.

What fantastic young players from all the countries. What a fantastic tournament.

  1. This is off topic, but this might be worth a laugh for those who despise the Flyers:

    Dennis, I want Gold every year as well. I’m glad we won the Bronze but this needs to be a lesson to our players and ones coming up later. Undisciplined play can get you into trouble and make you lose games.

    They still did well, but I would have liked the Gold. It gives us bragging rights for a year. :)
