Blogging The Gold Medal Game

Go Canada Go!

As an experiment, I blogged Team Canada's 9-0 win over Germany in real time last week.  It didn't detract from my enjoyment of the game and it provided an interesting account of the action, so I've deemed the experiment a complete success.

Tomorrow night our junior team faces Russia for gold.  It's our fourth trip in a row to the finals but we haven't finished first since 1997.  The NHL lockout has put a great deal more focus on this tournament than usual and this country is starving for a victory.  Remember, we're the current World Champions, Olympic Champions and World Cup Champions.  Winning the 2005 IIHF World Junior Championship would mean unprecedented dominance in our national sport.  It's a huge game and to mark the occasion I will once again be Game Bloggin'.

Drop by tomorrow night during the game to read my instant reaction to the action.
