The World Cup is going to be a joke. I'm not watching even if Canada wins. Boo Gary, and boo Putin.

I'm fine with it, except for the Team North America part. It feels weird.

Great for Putin, no matter what kind of tyrant he is, to recognize Canada as the "founding father" of hockey.


And Russia was the first nation to recognize the beauty of the game.  They filled giant arenas from the early decades of the 20th century. There is a reason Canadians were cheering for Russia over the USA back in a Canada Cup or was a World Cup back a ways when Don Cherry was so angry that Canadians would dare to not cheer for the yanks. They respected our game before any other country did.
