Actually, who cares what the Olympics state officially. Don't get too wrapped up in all that nonsense about pretending. Nobody thinks that it is not about money. Everything is about money, so might as well accept it for what it is.
Now that we have that established, the Olympics are a lot of fun, especially the Winter Olympics.
You did not think the hockey was fun to watch? You did not think it was better than what you see most of the time?
Yes, I do think the hockey was fun to watch, but I think NHL hockey is more fun to watch.
NHL hockey is more physical, more violent, which does add to the fun factor.
A lot of the olympics are dumb sports though. Like curling. Or the marathon.. I can't think of anything more boring then watching a marathon.
Last year Marc Crawford, who has coached team Canada in the past picked Staal and Del Zotto (LHD where Canada is thin). Ferraro picked Staal and Girardi. Del Zotto used to play with Pietro before their OHL days.
Gabby, Hank, Cally, and Nash are locks. McD might as well be, and Step might sneak in there, especially if he and Cally keep clicking. Hag's speed and play should help him make the cut.
