canada vs sweden for gold medal in the world junior championship.

it's TIED! 2 each. oh no.
we're into overtime. 4 play3ers on 4 players on huge ice.
sudden death.
buckle up.

Canada won. Sweden has the silver medal, and Russia has the bronze. Special respect to Viktor Tikhonov, of Russia. Hope to see him play here.

it was great hockey. better than the NHL.

there is no other kind.

field hockey? I think we call it Lacrosse. hockey just means one thing here--ice, skates and a puck.

Hmm, we have Lacrosse as well as Hockey. Field Hockey at school was always played in winter and mud was compulsory and so were embarrassing bright yellow long socks.

It wasn't a good game if it didn't end with an ambulance being called out.

Helen, as the Canadian personal dress shopper, I am depending on you for future dress crises. embarrassing yellow socks worry me. however, I have faith.
