So the idea that the man on the street couldn't give a crap and therefore it is embarrasing for the world is hogwash.
The US is training an army of hockey players and should be a dominant force going by this. Of course you could argue that you're 2nd best in the world but you'd be wrong. Lord knows that you wouldn't be the first to argue that ones own country is THE best or 2nd best.
These arguments never amount to much. The US has 300 million people, all of whom played soccer as a kid, and we still can't find 11 that are good enough to beat Guatemala regularly.
