Well I must thank Slovakia for removing our biggest psychological opponent from the games – Finland should now have a good chance of winning the Ice hockey

Well now, if Slovakia and the United States end up in a match for medal contention then it might be a bit dicy here on old LJ’s. The US LJ’s vs the Slovak LJ’s. Let’s see now. Now many Slovakian LJ’s are there here? Hmm.. let’s see.. There’s Martin and ah….Martin…um. And I didn’t know they had non-American speaking olympic coverage. Who’d-a-thunk!

Just kidding Martin. It’s my ‘American we think we’re the center of the Universe upbringing’ coming out. Feels good when your homeboys win huh? It’s great when you see your country succeed in things like this.

I don’t know what that announcer said, but he was surely having fun !
The way those Slovaks were swarming the net, the Swedes must have thought that there were three extra players on their side !

Hay I thought this was a woodworking site.

Just kidding, don’t disable my ID Martin.

Congratulations on the game. The announcer was having a great time.

All kidding aside the Slovakian team has been playing really well. They have alot of NHL talent on their team. I will be rooting for them to upset Canada..gota cheer for my Boston Bruins players…Chara and Satan…

That underdog thing really works..the USA has been riding that the whole tourny so far..I think that’s what the US coach has been using to motivate his team.
