Day 321: Canadians love Hockey

All of Canada is heart-broken today. It's all over the news. Everyone is talking about it.

I don't know if people in the US are aware, but there has been this thing going on called the World Junior Hockey Championships.

It's kind of a big deal around here.

Canada was beaten by Russia last night in the gold medal final. The US team won the bronze medal, beating out Sweden.

I checked a couple of American news websites this morning. I had to look really hard, but a found a few tiny mentions.

Canadian news, on the other hand is freaking out:

An epic collapse, as Russia stuns Canada 5-3

Russia stuns Canada in world junior hockey final

Momentous Canadian collapse hands Russia gold 

Canadian fans deflated by world juniors loss

Russians rally to deny Canada world junior gold

Canada loses control in third 



Oh, and this happened:
USA DOWNS SWEDEN TO CLAIM BRONZE AT WORLD JUNIORS

 And then this happened this morning:  (click link) Too much vodka
