(1) US beats Canada in the prelims. Canadians tell us not to celebrate too hard, it was a fluke.

(2) Canadians tell us the US has no chance once the gold medal game is set. Canada is too good, etc. etc.

(3)US gives them everything they can handle, takes them to overtime, and loses. Now Canada wants to be an underdog story too?


You want your losses to be flukes, and your victories to be triumphs against all odds. You want to be the favorites before hand, and the underdogs after you win, effectively refusing to give the US any credit beforehand for being any good, or afterward for giving you a good game despite apparently not being any good.


A simple respectful tip of the hat for a final well played would suffice, thanks. Then you could go on about the business of celebrating your gold medal.
