Canada 3, Finland 2
The World Cup has returned to Canada after 13 long years. This marks four straight national championship wins for Canada as we were victorious at the 2002 Olympics and captured two consecutive IIHF world titles. There is no doubt as to which nation rules the hockey universe.
It was a great game and a great night but this morning I awoke to the realization we're all getting screwed. It was an awesome tournament and the good guys ran the gamut going 6-0 and winning it all but now the ACC is hockey-less for Lord knows how long. James and I donned our Leafs jerseys last night and gathered with the family to watch our game and it felt so right...it felt so Canadian. A strip of our cultural fabric is being torn away from us and there's absolutely nothing we can do.
I do have a contingency plan though and I'll write more about that later this afternoon. For now, I'm going to savour our big win and enjoy the fact that we are the champions of the world.
