Getting the greens out of the way in the early games, good good.

Allen took the warmup like he's the starting goalie. Don't think we see Jones today.

Looking at it, I'm wondering if we see Jones at all in this tournament.

They should have gotten them out of the way in the pre-tournament games.

TSN pre-game said Allen was starting. I have to think they start Jones tomorrow though, second game of a back-to-back, they don't want to tire Allen out early, they sold all of that "we don't have a set starting goalie," and Jones looked solid enough in his one game.

I agree, but at least we won't have to see them after today.

We dont get to hear all the pregame talk from TSN in the media section. It'd be nice to have quite frankly! It's one of the things I miss the most about watching it on TV.

I dont think Jones will get in a game at this tournament.
Allen is the clear cut #1

Or... can't figure out what connection the World Junior hockey tournament has to do with a CFL football team.

Oh wait... there is none.

I hope hockey Canada sells a boatload of these jerseys in Saskatchewan, because the odds of selling them anywhere else are non-existent.

You may be right, Team Canada might not give Allen a day off as he's just not getting that much work so far this tournament to warrant a day off.

6-1 Canada is my guess for today.

Its held in Saskatchewan. There really is no other reasoning. Unless you live in Saskatchewan, have lived in Saskatchewan or have a parent from Saskatchewan you wouldn't understand.

At the games you will see more Rider gears than other gear because its Saskatchewan. The Riders are not just a football team, they're a way of life.

Am I going crazy or did Kiefer Sutherland just do the voiceover for that intro?

I can't believe all the green jerseys you see in the crowd, I would never buy a WJC jersey, but if I would, it would at least be the classic Canada red.
