no just those two countries in hockey. Canadians feel that they deserve this medal and blah blah blah that it would be funny to see the team fall flat on its face like it did in Torino.

Same goes for Russia and tall the talk coming out of Medvedev's piehole.

U.S.A! U.S.A! I think I'm pulling for Russia if the U.S gets eliminated. Strictly because I would love to see Ovechkin win.

Sweden.

HM: Russia

But with Canada's line-up it would look like it is theirs to lose.

Deutschland (Germany) although our hockey team won't make it beyond the group stage I guess.

other favourites:
- Czech Republik (near to where I live, great hockey to watch)
- Sweden (King Henrik)
- Canada (host of the games, hockey country)

- USA Obviously.
- Sweden after that. I have Swedish blood, I love Hank, and their Jerseys. Best national Jersey.
- I am always rooting against Canda.
- I think Russia takes it.
- Would love to see Jagr dominate.

I know it's not war, but it would be nice to see people actually having pride in their country and would want them to win. It seems like we are one of the few countries in the world in which our own citizens root for other countries over their own which is sad.

I'm probably going to root for Russia since I always have at the Olympics. USA if they get past Russia or Canada, which probably won't happen. Sweden third

I don't feel like I have a strong attachment to any team though, especially since it's hard for me to root against Rangers players.

Well, of course I'll be rooting for Germany, but since they won't go far, I'm gonna be rooting for Sweden. I love the country, and I want Hank to do well

Well, our country is kind of unique in that most of our ancestry comes from other countries. Plus, compared to 1980, who are we rooting for? Poor working class college kids? Hardly
