Downfall of the Canadian Olympic hockey team

Yes, you know who I'm talking about. I'm talking about the Men's Ice Hockey Team of Team Canada at the 2006 Winter Olympic in Turin, Italy. The omnipotent Canadian hocky team with star-studded lineups has finally succumbed to pressure and scandal by losing two games straight.

This is a devastating setback for a Gold defending team like Canada. With a short Olympic time-span of two weeks, there's no room for mistakes and any wrong maneuver could result in the loss a medal standing.

Will Team Canada be able to pull off this stunt? Only time will tell.

The next game is Tuesday against the Czech Republic (CBC, 10:30 a.m. EST). This is THE deciding game and if Team Canada can't hold off the wraith of its opponent and rescue itself, it will only fuel the truth behind the ugly denial of the alleged NHL hockey gambling ring.

Maybe this is exactly the publicity that we need to spread the Canadian sport down south. Because, seriously, the majority of Americans neither give a damn nor care about how great hockey (fight) is. Whether Mr. Gretzky is involved or not, this will for sure be a boost for hockey.

Wow, that's just bad. I didn't know this was going to happen. Now, this will only arouse the suspicion of Mr. Gretzky's involvement behind the gambling scandal.

With a fast-pace sport like hockey, there's no way to guarantee victory. The only way is to make sure you win each and every game. Team Canada didn't do that and that's the biggest setback.
