Last night’s “epic” game was way too painful to watch. At least for me. I went in truly believing that no matter which team won, I’d still be happy, since I am a Canadian of Russian descent. It’s a win-win, right? Wrong! Sitting at a St. Louis, surrounded by a sea of jersey-clad Team Canada fans, I felt a little sad for Team Russia, and though I dressed to represent both teams – Russian Matryoshka tee with a Canada Cowichan sweater on top, I found myself gritting my teeth when Canada scored not 1, not 2, but 3 goals in the first period and the only one in the entire bar to leap for joy when Russians scored! I guess, so much for neutrality.
Still, I would have to admit, Canadians played really well. Much, much better than during their game against the US. As for the Russians…they just didn’t show up. Oh well, maybe next time…perhaps winning on home turf is what matters, and the team that really, really wanted it won? We shall see if it’s the case in Sochi.
