How much are you willing to bet on that? BTW, I'm talking mens hockey. Of course the US womens will medal.

It sure would be nice to have 2 gold medals AGAIN in hockey wouldn't it Intrepid.

American Madman, I bet even our Canadian girls team can put up a pretty good challenge to your American boys, now that would be a game. They played shorthanded almost the whole game last time against your US girls team and still cleaned their clock to take yes you guessed it GOLD.

May the best teams win. Cheers mates

Let's just invade his country. That oughtta mellow him out.


Then our guys can get more medals doing it, which would make that just too darn ironic to pass up.


Speaking of which, seems to me we're overdue for an invasion -- I mean "spreading peace, democracy and freedom".


Oh well, if Canada takes men's hockey, let's just invade them -- and take their beer in retaliation.

uhhh, we don't have to worry about the Gold, but taking our beer, now that would be enough to start a war.

And if you guys win
then we'll all have to drink your crap beer.

Why why, why would you do this

Our beer is better then yours.

Check out the top 10 at BeerAdvocate.com. Seems to me the MAJORITY of the top 10 beers in the WORLD are AMERICAN!

Powned!


In any case, maybe your beers could help us round out the bottom part of the top 100. :w::w::w:

Yeah OK. I'm sure Madano would be shut down by your girls...

In any case, with your whole damn country focusing on only one sport, you had better win the Gold.

Beyond that, I still say the US hockey team medals, in fact, I'll go so far to say that they place better then Canada (ballsy prediction, eh?)!

Take a Canadian's beer, Majic? Have you lost your mind? I was in the military for several years and had bullets launched at me, was married TWICE and had many household items thrown at me, am afraid of very, very little in this world, and even I wouldn't try to do that.

AMM, the only way we will be the Canadians at men's hockey is if someone takes the team out and gets them absolutely, undeniably, unbelievably tore up from the floor up. Do you know how much beer that would take? Our national debt would double in one night. It just isn't feasable.

Hey, if a bunch of college ameture nobodies making up the US national team can beat the Soviet natinal team, I think a bunch of US all-stars stand a chance against a bunch of Canadian all-stars.

I'm sticking to it untill we get beat!

That the best you can do? I guess you have faced reallity and realise you can't compete with the US athletically?

It's OK, we need a few tune ups on our road to Olympic glory!

Yes the truth is the best I can come up with. Come and talk to me when the word cup starts.

Wow, for a country that prides it's self on it's sense of humor, a few of you guys sure are lacking in the 'all in good fun' department.

Besides, when I think of England, class isn't something I normally associate them with - particularly when it comes to sports.

Lot's of class your soccer fans have, rioting every chnce they get.

Pure ignorance.

Anyway, you must appreciate that winter in this country is maybe a couple of days with .5 inches of snow on the ground, and everything, and I mean EVERYTHING grinding to a complete halt.

Anyway, look at the size of the US, you've got way more people than most of the competition, it's only natural that this should be reflected in the medal haul. However, I do accept that you need everything you can get to feel better about your "Vaterland" so enjoy.

Oh yeah... It's called FOOTBALL!

Come on man, you guys make French Muslims look well behaved.

The gold medal winner in speed skating from the US was from freaking TEXAS. That means the average winter for him was about 80 degrees, humid, and completely dry!

Numbers ahve nothing to do with it buddy! China has us nearly 5 times over, India nearly 4 times! We still beat the snot out of them. Fact is, the best athletes in the word come from the US.

No, that term is reserved for the most brutal, physically and mentally demanding sport in the world. You won't see any 6'5", 250 pound guys with 40 inch vertical jumps that run a 4.5 second forty yard dash playing soccer. Much less, watch these guys run as fast as they can into each other.

Real Football

Hell, if the drop out corner backs, wide recievers, safetys, and runningbacks from then NFL had played soccer their who life, I'd wager the US would already have more world cups then te rest of the world combined.

Football fans riot? Every chance we get?

Stupid
! No we do not. It is much more genteel now. It is called rumbling! They are well organised events, with the two combatant organisations often arranging it over mobile telephones.

On match day, everybody has a great time. They watch a great football match (unless you loose), have a couple of beers - proper warm English keg beers not that crappy weak Yank rubbish, then off to the main event.

Anything goes, with no holds barred and certainly no prisoners are taken.
All in all, a very tastey event, if you happen to be in one of the top five football gangs.

But
rioting? Of course not! That's against the law.

Every chance they get el numpto, would be about twice a week. Can you tell me when there last FOOTBALL Riot occoured? Or are you as I suspect, completely IGNORANT of the facts?

Hmm. You know, if they made it where tackling was not only legal in soccer, but encouraged, that would be a step in the right direction.

Then give every player a baseball bat, and give each goalie a sawed-off shotgun -- but only allow two shells per game.

To balance that out, allow the players to wear kevlar and give them all spiked helmets. Oh, and make the ball out of stainless steel.

Make a few modest changes like that, and I daresay soccer could catch on in the U.S.
