There's always third place

The USA hockey team's run for the World Cup of Hockey title was ended last night by a stubborn Finnish team. I knew the Finns would be up near the top, I just didn't think they would beat us. With a hot goalie like Mikka Kiprusoff, anything's possible.

But beat us they did, coming from behind in the third period. And now Finland, and not the US, will be playing for the championship. My hope is that Canada will be upset tonight by the Czech Republic. It would do my heart good to see the Canadians lose in a tournament that they started.
