    Who was the lead play by play guy for the USA games, much better than the two hacks tonight. Very impressed with his work.

      Steve Mears, I believe.

      What a crazy period! Excellent hockey. I'm not sure which team I want the US to face tomorrow.

        Funny, I like Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro better than Mears and Starman. But I like TSN more than USA Networks.

          So a game leading to a world championship is decided by a circus sideshow instead of by skating, shooting, stickhandling, passing, bodychecking, and all the other skills that comprise the game of hockey. I hope and pray the NCAA never stoops to this kind of nonsense to decide hockey championships.

              There is no way you can be at the BU game and not know what is happening in the Gold Medal game. I thought about it, not doing it.

                    If memory serves, you don't have season tickets anymore? I do, so no extra cost for me to consider. I'll always take live hockey over TV (except for extreme circumstances). I'm sure they'll have it on between periods and/or I'll fast forward to the goals after.

                          I am. And it's not the team that won. Canada gets better as the tournament goes on. And I don't know how Sweden has won ten billion "non-medal round" games in a row, because they were awful. Canada had MUCH more speed and skill. It's going to be awfully tough to beat them, IN CANADA, after we have already beaten them once. US would have handled Sweden easily. Definitely the two best teams in the tournament will be playing, that's for sure.

                              I think Starman has improved immensely. Mears has a more subdued style, but does a good job IMO.
