I highly doubt any US station will be showing today's Canada-Russia gold medal game, but anyone with a dish that gets TSN should watch. Game starts at 7pm Eastern (5pm in Alberta, 8:30pm in Newfoundland. Be there, aloha.)
Watch Canada kick some Russian junior ass! Watch the citizens of Halifax go insane, and then drink every bar in the downtown area dry! Watch for my brother-in-law in the eighth row, behind the players' benches!
I was looking forward to seeing good Canadian prospects score repeatedly on Andrei "Fat-Ass" Medvedev, Team Russia's fat-ass goalie and a Flames prospect. He has less of a shot of making the NHL than *I* do, and that's saying something.
Good to see Eric Nystrom (Flames first round pick last year) playing well for Team USA, though. Makes me have hope for the future.

Ummmm ... I mean ... good game! Well done everyone! Congratulations to our dirty, cheating, Communist bastard opponents!
(And Fat Ass Medvedev played a hell of a game. Aren't goalies like pitchers in baseball -- it don't matter how big the gut is if you can get the job done?)

I'm pretty sure this is a new record, but TSN is reporting that Neil Smith is out as Isles GM after about a month on the job: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=171632&hubname= No reason given yet, this news just broke in the last 45 minutes or so.
