team usa all the way!
Tomorrow is the big game. I was thinking about it at work today and when it hit me that it was TOMORROW I think I almost wet myself.
What game, you ask? Team USA vs Canada. The ONE AND ONLY TIME I will EVER root against Crosby. USA looks sharp… Canada looks sharper. Who’s gonna win?!?
In other news, I was at the gym running, listening to Fat Boy Slim (because that’s what cool people do while they’re working out) and watching the USA vs Norway game. It was one of those bittersweet games, where I wanted USA to win, because, well, I’m a US girl through and through, however, Norway is the home country. My great-grandma Katinka and Signe would be proud to know that I sort of rooted for them. Well, probably not. I don’t think they liked sports. Neither did my great grandpas… That almost depresses me. I’m going to say that my ancestors started being cool when I was born. That’s right. Go me.
Anywho, USA pummeled Norway 6-1 and when Ryan Malone scored the 5th goal, I cheered so loud that I think (and it’s hard to tell when you have “RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW…” blaring in your ears) that the gym got quiet for a half a second. Heads turned in my direction and I got funny looks. OK, so what I yelled was, “That’s right Malone, you son of a bitch!” So what. I was running and getting in shape. And I’m passionate about the sport. So sue me. If that was a Steelers game, I’m sure I would have gotten a “Right on, sister,” from the crowd. Oh, and I fist pumped the air, too.
So the big game is on tomorrow. Are we taking bets as to who will win?
