    Deriving an "our country is better than your country" statement from...or characterizing script on a goalie mask as such a declaration is a real stretch IMO...and kind of bizarre.

    Is a depiction of Stars & Stripes...the Mapleleaf on a goalie mask also a declaration of our country is better than yours? A tad overbearing in my view.

    And Vetter was allowed to keep the bald eagle and the Statue of Liberty graphics. Go figure.

    American men’s hockey goalies were hit with the regulation in the 2010 Vancouver Games, as Jonathan Quick’s “support our troops” slogan and Ryan Miller’s “Matt Man,” a tribute to his late cousin who died of leukemia, were stripped from the mask designs.
    Good thing the IOC is watching out for us. We wouldn't want any of those pesky memorials to lost loved ones.

    I thought it was way weirder that they made her remove her name because she's not supposed to self-promote. You know, despite the fact that it's in much larger letters about 6" below that.

    The thing is, I'm not entirely sure this isn't US media trying to create controversy. The IOC made Miller and Quick remove wording before Vancouver, too and I don't remember any of this maelstrom.
    It's a great day for hockey!

    Actually, I kind of remember the same sort of coverage 4 years ago, which is why I just dismissed this as being the IOC being the IOC.
