Everyone Cares About This Game

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,

By nature, Canadians are not cocky.

But they are proud.

So when I asked Hull, the sign-toting Canadian hockey fanatic who itches for a second chance on the ice against the Americans, what the word “rematch” meant to his country, the answer was uncharacteristically bold.

“Gold,” he said. “No doubt.”

Here’s what is so very cool about hockey in the Olympics:

It’s the one time when players really care as much about who wins as fans do.
