It was a close call but Team Canada got their 4-peat beating Sweden 3-2 in overtime. The best part of the game, though, was the celebration after. The boys just wouldn't leave the rink! They even went into the stands 3 times and celebrated with the fans. And continuing with our winter sports tradition, someone brought in a HUGE flag which was laid on the ice. While watching the wrapup afterwards, I learned that another tradition has started as of last year -- the boys kissing each other, on the forehead, through their helmet face guards, etc. Oh boys. =)
Next year, the Junior U20 World Championships will be in Ottawa so a 5-peat is definitely in the cards. I can't even imagine what would happen if Team Canada lost on home ice. But one of these years, we're going to lose the gold and man, do I feel sorry for that team.
And yes, I can't believe not only that I just posted about hockey but that I watched the game! Totally my brother's fault ;)
