i KNEW he'd not give the US credit for winning, let alone showing 'American guts and will' like he said about Canada: 'Canadian guts and will won the game' New Years' Eve
You had to know he'd pull something out of his ass. He's an idiot. An entertaining idiot sometimes, but still an idiot.

The fact is that Canada was lucky to win on New Years Eve, and if not for Jordan Eberle's magic in the gold medal game, it wouldn't have been close. Canada's coaches didn't adjust their game to counteract the US speed and skill, goaltending was sketchy, and they didn't play as a team.

Would some of the NHL'ers have helped Team Canada? Of course. But you play with the cards you're dealt, and there was enough skill on Team Canada. Outside of a handful of players, they didn't play with heart. And they didn't play as a team. That's why they have silver and a very good US team earned gold.
