Canadians sure like their Hockey

I have always enjoyed hockey games. But, I don't think I've ever enjoyed them so much as watching them with all the Canadian fans. The national pride and hockey enthusiasm was evident EVERYWHERE. From commercials that said: "Let's show the world who's game they are playing" to chants of "Go Canada Go" even during the Russian vs. Czech game to the crowds of people hovering around any and every television set during a game (we made it a point to eat at restaurants with TVs during big games). I don't think I've even seen that much red and white at a U of U football game. Needless to say, I was still pretty excited when the U.S. beat them anyway in the first game and can't wait to watch them do it again today. Go U.S.A.!
