Canada vs. Russia, Other Games GDT

That hot dog looks good. Wonder if I could trade my stick for a hot dog? Damn that is making me hungry. Gotta keep my playing weight up.

Like Christmas sales in July, the gold medal game in men's ice hockey at the Vancouver Games is coming a little early. In the quarterfinals. Loser goes home, the winner has to win one more game to make the semifinals. 

Russia had the last two days off. Canada had to play Germany last night, and the guys with the maple leafs on their chests took out a little frustration on the Oktoberfest lovers setting up what was supposed to be the game of the tournament. Just not today's game of the tournament. Funny how that worked out, canuckleheads. 

We don't have a ton to say before the game. It will be interesting to see how Sidny Crosby deals with the pressure. Same with Roberto Luongo, the new starter for the game after Martin Brodeur shat the bed. 

The Russia/Canada showdown is set for 6:30 CST on the influential sporting channel, CNBC (both C's stand for curling). 

There are other games tonight like Finland fighting Czech Republic to face the American juggernauts. There's also Sweden against Slovakia. Go ahead and hang out here until the quarterfinals are done. Fill up the comments. Make Euro jokes. I don't care. 

O Canada, this is your game day thread. Stand on guard for thee.
