HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES!
All I have to say is WOW! I don't often let my Canadian heritage be known...okay not true, but I can't help saying that the hockey game Canada had against Russia in the semi-final of the World Junior hockey tournament was awesome! It was a back and forth game, that saw Canada tie the game with less then 5 seconds left in the 3rd period! Both teams went scoreless through the sudden death overtime period which led them to a shootout where Canada outlasted the Russians. IT WAS AMAZING...I found myself on the edge of my chair for the last 20 minutes of action as well as the shootout! AWESOME! Can't wait for the gold medal game on Monday against Sweden. My poor wife is finally getting a taste of the passion Canadians have for hockey since this is the first time we have had the World Juniors available here in Iowa. I'll let you know how it all ends up!
