Watching Canada win the World Juniors or at anything for that matter never gets old for me.
I'm a patriot - not like Joyce's "citizen" but I honestly believe we live in the greatest country in the world and that we have no idea how good we have it.
We are lucky to live here.
So today's victory - sweet.
And Jonathan Toews, in the post game interview, saying he thought they played "fucking great" (I think that's what he said) - beauty.
Brings back memories - I think it was '88. Gold medal game against the Russians. New Year's Day. Waking up in my buddy's basement after a night of boozing. Watching the game with my two best friends and seeing Jimmy Waite stand on his head to deny the Reds time and time again. Canada wins thanks to him.
After the game they interview him in the dressing room.
Jimmy's English wasn't all that great.
The interviewer asked the typical inane question - are you happy with your performance or some such thing?
Jimmy - "I think I play a good game, fuck."
Way to go boys.
