Kicking Russian Ass


O ye of little faith, you didn't think we'd have a chance against Russia in the quarter-finals, did you?  On Monday, I wrote Poor Russia after connecting the dots and seeing Russia in our sight-lines after a gimme against Germany.

I'll bet the last team Russia wanted to face in the quarters is Canada. Tomorrow night, we'll get another tune-up against Germany, another chance to warm up Roberto Luongo and reset our lines and focus.

It was far better than I dared dream.  We dominated the Russians, all but making Ovechkin disappear.  The final was 7-3, a true ass-whooping, as we easily earned a berth in the semi-finals against either Sweden or Slovakia.  We're but a single win away from the gold medal final.

Never, ever bet against Canada in our game.
