Hey, Rotten Ronnie took the US to the Final in 2010. He might even have lots of free time by 2014. It all depends on who'll GM the team I guess.

I wish the hadn't brought this up. I won't be able to sleep well until the name the Olympic coach.

The U.S could do a lot worse than Disco Dan. That being said, is this really a news story now? I didn't think so.

That is not even remotely funny Canuck eh?...Oh, all right I did crack a smile...but that does not mean that there is nothing wrong with you that a decent psychiatrist couldn't cure.

Personally I'd like to see Obama behind the bench.

Just because they're both Leaf millstones doesn't mean I can't rip 'em a new one for their national team involvement. :0)

At least Obama can spell the word "hockey", which is a lot more than Bush could do.

You guys should know better than to bring political crap in here. I'd rather read about colostomy bags than politicians on either side of the fence and in either country.

Why, indeed! Now Hank won't be able to sleep until they drop the puck for the Gold Medal game between the U.S. and Canada! But, he'll be immensly relieved and pleased when he finds out Luongo will be in net for Canada again! :-)

Excellent job, Canuck, as always! Was that Burkie providing the sound effects in the background? Or, did Wilson managed all that on his own?

Well, Stranger, problem is that there just isn't enough of this stuff on MSNBC, CNN and Fox News to satisfy. ;-)
