I'd be happy to share my copy of it, but not sure how, since it's 40 gigs for the 6-hour NBC broadcast...

Congrats to Team Canada, and to Canada's 30 million hockey fans.
Congrats to Team USA. You were still the best team in the series, playing with the most heart, consistently and effectively. Congrats to Ron Wilson, perhaps the biggest unsung hero of the series.
Of course it's easy to be sour grapes, but I'm sure glad that the NHL has stuck with indefinite 5-on-5 overtime to settle their important games. The olympic/international style of deciding games by hockey-related exercises (4-on-4, shootouts, etc), is certainly more expedient, but there's probably half a dozen teams that are going to be better than the US squad at those exercises. (And of course the young legs of the US team would have the bigger advantage in a 4th or 5th period of full strength.)
Of course, and I could see how it may have come off as lame stereotyping. Personally I love the game (and can't stand football here -- the most overhyped thing in the universe), and just have to wonder how many here would even have noticed if the final game went the other way.
