With so many people from America's Hat on the board, and two, TWO big games tomorrow and Friday, let's have at it.

If anyone can post that picture of Mt. Rushmore as seen from the Canadian side, I'd really appreciate it.

The United States armed forces have drafted detailed plans for the invasion of Canada.  The U.S. has even conducted, in the past, war games where U.S. troops have been massed near the Canadian border in a mock invasion.  :lol:

As I posted elsewhere:  the USA is going to win this game.  They are going to neutralize Canada's pretty boys, like the other Canadian opponents have done, and take the fight to them.

David Backes is a wild beast.

That is all.

Is it the 7am ET game or the noon ET game?  How do they not have this info available immediately after the conclusion of the CAN-LAT game?  I'd have to guess noon.

USA-Canada should be a good one.  

Too bad I have to be at work because part of me would love to pick up H.o.m.o Milk and Kraft dinner for lunch and then throw back a mickie or two-four while watching on my Chesterfield.  But I won't because the other part of me is American and knows how to ###### speak English.

Sincere comment hope all will have fun with this, root hard for their respective teams ect. but also respect the sensibilities of the other, one will be pleased , one will not be. Such games at times make me nervous as to often otherwise fine people get emotional and say things they would not normally say. As it goes once something is said it hard to take back. :)

That's why this pregame thread will be closed immediately before the men's game.

same here.

i will admit: i root for my national teams (well, team, really--it's just hockey for me) on a level that approximates, but does not equal, the way in which i cheer for my hometown teams.

the same goes for my college's teams. i cheer like hell for them, but not quite in the same way i do for my hometown teams.

i say this because i sense it's quite different for almost all canadians (and, yeah, probably some americans).

It's his number from his days at Michigan State (and maybe before).  For obvious reasons, he didn't want to wear 39 in Bflo.

Both teams are stacked with talent, so I think that parameter is a wash. I think Bylsma is in a zone with his coaching right now, while Babcock and crew are not.

Team Canada did not look hungry versus Latvia, whom they should have steamrolled (regardless of Latvia's goalie). I think this is a result of the lack of team chemistry for the Canadians and Babcock is having a hard time because of that.

Team USA is much more of a "team" and I believe that is what puts them over Canada two days out. If Team Canada can gel over the next few days, it could make things interesting.

Being right on the border, I can attest that USA beers, thanks to the microbrews, are far superior to Canadian beers.

Sizzle I have to agree with your assessment. It seems like Canada tried to go with 4 first lines picking solely who they thought were the best players rather than picking the right guys to fill rolls while the American brass picked what amounts to a team with roll players as well as stars. From what I've seen Canada has yet to hit their stride while the Americans are firing on all cylinders. I'm afraid it'll be the States taking this one and getting a little payback for 2010. That being said, GO CANADA. May the best team win. Good luck to all you American fans.

No that you mention it, me too.

Interesting you can fit the population of Canada in California and there would be a decline and if you switched California's population into Canada it would be a dramatic increase in population.  My only question is who which one would be loopier?  The Canucks or the Calis.  Mumm... those Merican's are making fun of us again....

Seriously hoping for a good game...

Canada has struggled so far this tournament, but a huge difference between their previous games and the USA is that we are going try to force them to play our style, we will pressure them and we will attack them. USA isn't going to park a bus in front of Quick's goal and defend the passing lanes and try to block shots and hope that if anything does get through will be saved. We're going for the win.

That said, USA is playing unreal right now like they are on a mission. Very determined group of players. I think USA wins and i don't think it'll be close. 4-2 USA.
