Who’s game is it?*

January 5, 2010

The USA team won the 2010 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship!

The game tonight was fantastic — virtually non-stop action.  Both teams must be exhausted.  I was also impressed by the composure of these young men.  The oldest is only 20 and the winning goalie, Jack Campbell, is turning 18 this month.  (This makes me feel really old.  I used to go to Des Moines Buccaneers games as a teenager when the players were the same age as me.  Now I’m old enough to be their mom!)

The StarPhoenix has a sad photo of the Canadian team and no photo of the American team.  Seriously?  Maybe they’ll do better tomorrow.

*Yeah, I’m kind of tired of the “Hockey is Canada’s Game” signs.  Enough already.  Oh, for Pete’s sake.  A Hockey Hall of Fame commercial just came on behind me.  “This is our game.”  Blah blah blah.
