So Canada lost the gold medal in the World Hockey championships today. Sad to say, I was actually cheering for the Russians.
I guess that’s what happens when NHL players participate in events like this. I watched the game this afternoon, and because I have certain NHL alliances, it’s hard to go against that. My favourite team is Montreal. Andrei Markov was the only Habs player on either team, so I was cheering for him.
The team I hate the most is Ottawa. Canada had both Spezza and Heatley, so it was tough to cheer for them.
I like watching players like Ovechkin and Kovalchuk, but I don’t know much about guys like Shane Doan, Brent Burns and I don’t like Cam Ward or Chris Kunitz.
It’s the same reason I don’t care when the NHL players are in the Olympics. It’s more like an All-Star game than anything else.
