A Great Day Of Hockey Is Approaching

from Jeff Z. Klein and Charles McGrath of the New York Times,

Sunday’s Olympic men’s hockey matchup between Canada and the United States is not the end of the world — not quite.

The loser will not be eliminated but will have to play an extra game to get to the quarterfinals. As this tournament has demonstrated, the more games a team plays, the more chances that something unexpected will happen.

Then there are the sociopolitical implications of the Canada-United States game.

“This is going to be unbelievable,” United States Coach Ron Wilson said. “It’s going to be on every TV in Canada and a good number in America. Anyone who is a hockey fan will be watching.

“It’s going to be a great day for hockey.”
