Olympics: Pre Mens Hockey Final
I’m not a big fan of sports. I watch it rarely. Except for the Olympics (see my blog post about that here), the only time I’m really into watching a game would be when I was watching the Rutgers football games – and that’s mainly because that is my school’s team.
Realistically, I just don’t see the excitement in it considering there’s like always some game on and I can already think of countless ways to waste my time that I need to be working on. If sporting events occurred less frequently, their competition level would seem more exciting in my opinion.
So many times I hear from my brothers (and others) they can’t do so and so at that time or can’t go here then because this game or that game is on- I just don’t see why and how something on TV would dictate my schedule. That’s just pretty ridiculous.
But that’s not what this blog post was supposed to be about – it was supposed to be on the the much anticipated game with Canada against the U.S… the one i’ll probably be watching.
Why? Well, there are several reasons.
I honestly don’t think I would watch the final game tomorrow if the pair of teams playing in the final were any other possible combination- considering I’ve only seen minutes (if not less) of any hockey games so far in these Olympic games.
But I am a Canadian who is now residing in the U.S.. The rivalry could not be any more intense… which leads to a part of the excitement in the competition.
The fact that U.S. beat Canada in the quarterfinals (i think?) adds to it as well to see how this game will play out.
Canada has more gold medals than the U.S. right now – and adding one more wouldn’t hurt :).
Canada just has to win!
Anyways, I doubt I’ll watch the whole game (I know I won’t watch the whole game), but I’ll have to catch at least bits and pieces of it.
Hoping for a Canada win,
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
