It's a busy sports afternoon with the good guys taking on Canada for the gold at 3pm (NBC) and Sparty visiting Purdue at 4pm (CBS).
On the hockey front, I guess I'd like our chances more if we hadn't won the earlier matchup. The favored Canadians will be out for blood and this game is as important as any played since at least the '72 Summit Series. Still, I like how 2010 is shaping up as Year of America (F-YEAH) and the talent gap is closing by the day.
It's hard to hate on the Purdue basketball team (though the football team can DIAF), so we feel for them on the loss of Hummel. Today, however, we'll do our best because a loss would go a long way towards helping Ohio State to a share of the conference crown (and a #1 seed in the Big Ten tourney).
It's cold outside and there's snow on the ground. In other words, it's a perfect day to take in some sports. Your witty observations are welcome here.
