"I can handle losing to any country, but losing to the USA is the equivalent of getting a swift kick to the balls, right after being punched square in the balls." - Minister Towelboy to Wanye via bbm, 0.01 seconds after the end of game.

Olympic question: Who is Canada ’s biggest rival when it comes to hockey; Russia or the United States?
We could sit here and argue until the 2014 Winter Games begin but there would be no clear cut winner. There are such different styles of play when comparing games against the US compared to those against Russia that the rivalries are almost completely different.

Thank goodness for the Olympic break as far as the Calgary Flames are concerned.

Through six games for Calgary, Higgins is the only new-comer without a point.
