    "We"?? Are you on the team?!

    They could have played the whole game shorthanded and still won probably 5-0. It was awful hockey to watch so I just kept it on in the background while watching regular TV. Every time I turned around they had scored another goal. I felt sorry for Germany. They looked like a U14 team out there.

    Even though my beloved Germans took it on the chin from my beloved Americans AGAIN, I do just love a good butt whipping like that, kinda like UW against Lindenwood years ago. Getting to do 11 sieve chants in one game is a big treat. I hope the US pours it on the Canadians like that.

    Sorry Kimosabe. We as in the United States of which, last I looked, I am a citizen thereof.

    However, I understand and "they" would have been a more appropriate term.

    But then what do I call the Canadians tonight??

    "The bad guys", "The opposition", "The Canucks" are a few things that come to mind...that are polite enough to type here.

    do you also enjoy making fun of the handicapped? I don't think 11-0 is fun for anyone, not challenge for the winner, no chance for the loser and boring for the viewer. I'd rather watch a well contested game between equals. A sieve chant against ARD or Peters is a sign of respect, against someone being shelled it is an insult.

    any normal person knew what you meant by "we", don't sweat it. I assume he was joking.

    In the past 10 years, the gap between the top two teams and the rest of the world appears to be growing, not shrinking. Without any evidence at all, I attribute this to the European teams treading water while the Americans and Canadians are getting better. It remains to be seen if the Americans are starting to put distance between themselves and the Canadians, but I believe Canada will respond appropriately, and future Canadian teams will feature enough speed to keep pace with the US.

    However, any sport that continues to have such non-competitive quarterfinal and semifinal matches is going to have to justify continuing as an Olympic sport. The women's game is not really a world sport, but a regional one. I would love to be proven wrong, but that rarely occurs more than a dozen times a day.

    Hard to argue but I do think Finland exceeded expectations, having surprised Canada and giving the U.S. all they could handle, with the game very much still on the line until the empty netter in the final minute. But other than Finland I would agree that the other teams still don't have a realistic chance of upsetting the Americans or the Canadians. Sweden in particular has seemingly gone downhill since winning Silver in 2006.

    Re: 2017 Women's World Championships

    The semi finals were on TV (TSN) here and so will the Bronze Medal Game this afternoon. But no where to be found on TV here is the Gold Medal Game tonight. How does this make any sense? (Although it looks like it will be streamed on TSN 4 & 5).

    All parties can gain something tangible from a butt kicking. The winner undoubtedly will have some players who probably don't get to contribute all the time get to contribute and they can gain some valuable playing time and confidence. The loser will have some players who learn from the experience and the the viewer such as me has a fun time watching. The opposing team's viewers can see some great play by the winner.

    I like to play tennis. One summer I played weekly against a co-worker who was a lot better than me. I got crushed game after game but I still played. I had fun playing, trying to deal with this guy. If I won a game, I was pumped, though I lost 6-1 and he might have aced me 12 times. By the end of the summer instead of losing 6-0 or 6-1, I was only losing 6-3 or 6-4. I think the "Lindenwood" players feel/felt the same way I did, otherwise they would not play at all.

    I have a daughter who IS mentally handicapped, she is my hockey buddy, and let me tell you, if we get to see UW score a bunch of goals, she's happier than me. She might say with an exclamation "8?!" and have the biggest grin on her face, you'd thin she won the ability to be "normal". She "loses" every day by our standards, but that big amazing win for the Badgers is a big win for her. I am thankful Maddy and I are in the position that we are associated with a team like UW that can give her some more reasons to be joyous and happy.

    True, my bad. I really wanted to go with a big bully against a weak target but went the wrong way.

    Having played on teams that won 11-0 and on teams that were totally outclassed I don't find either fun.

    Corrected one sentence in your Bc centric article:

    Bobby Orr (really), as she pioneered the programís three-zone, below-the-goal-line, bombís-away defensive style that has made Boston College the 2nd most dominant team in the east (behind Clarkson)
