Win or lose...

Tomorrow will be one of the biggest games of our generation, imo. How many people around the world will watch it? Certainly 2/3 of Canada and probably 1/10 - 1/8 of the US, maybe more, not to mention people in other countries. This will be an utter spectacle, and will probably be the best display of talent and hockey sense we will see for a long time.

So enjoy it!

.... and as much as hockey is clearly a team sport. In a one game, winner take all situation, the play of either Roberto Loungo or Ryan Miller or both will most likely decide the gold medal.

If 30 million Americans watch a hockey game on Sunday afternoon, I will eat my own head.

I blew off a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview a main-stream rock band and V.I.P back-stage passes to watch hockey gold.

Here's to a good game

Either way, this is great for the sport. I've seen/heard so many people talking about, first, us beating Canada, and to a lesser extent, our win against the Fins.

whatever the outcome, for these 2 teams finishing no lower than 2nd after a 7th and 8th finish last time is great... the NHL execs are probably all high fiving each other

Id like to see a north america vs the world game where it wasnt just an all star game, but with actual stakes on the line and hitting

Anything that can raise awareness of the game in the States is good by me!

Here's hoping for a great game. How epic would this be if it went to overtime?

Probably 30 million out of 33 million people in Canada will watch it, the 3 million people will be working or be in the middle of a heart surgery with no way to watch the game.

I somehow highly doubt that. Don't be arrogant, this is going to be a tough game for both sides.


Anyways I agree. It will be a game to remember.

Perfectly matched gold medal game. Other countries had no business in it, really. Let's hope for a classic game!

There is the same chance of either team blowing out either team as there is of it being a close one.

No one here can predict the future

Yeah, but the first Canada-USA game was a preliminary round game on MSNBC.

This is the Gold Medal game, on NBC, after a week of hype building up in the media. I expect in the range of 20-30 million.

One thing is for certain, no matter what happens, every woman in the US needs to grant Miller access to their vagina.
