    Thumbs up Canadian Women Win Gold Beating Team USA...What An Exciting Game It Was

    Haven't seen a more exciting game in a long time. Thought for sure the USA had us at 2 nothing with minutes to go in the 3rd. period.

    To tie it up like they did and have it go to overtime was about as good as it gets. Awesome!!!

    Congratulations to Team Canada's Ladies for the Gold & to the Team USA Gals for such a remarkable game and their Silver Medals. Both should be proud.

    Ah yes, I couldn't watch it but I snuck in a couple of live scores and thought we had it for sure. I got the news text as I got home. Congrats. That game will be on my list to watch as it sounded so exciting.

    Warmest Regards

    Believe me Lefty you won't regret watching that game...WoW!

    Canada will go Nuts tonight & tomorrow we get to watch the Men's Team vs Team USA in the semi-finals which should be equally as good to watch. Looking forward to that one big time.

    I saw a story on the TV news today about our stupid a$$ US IRS,these athletes have to pay taxes on the medals they win.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/soc...cle-sam-n33651

    sorry,but that's ridiculous IMO,these kids struggle enough financially as it is !

    "According to Americans for Tax Reform, a group supporting the bill, those in the top tax bracket like skier Ted Ligety, ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White, or any U.S. hockey player will pay 39.6 percent, or $9,900, on a gold medal while those in the bottom tax bracket will pay 10 percent, or $2,500, for a gold."

    Dan that is outragious i agree. How greedy can these government A Holes get.

    Great way to take the shine off the efforts of dedicated people giving their all for their countries. What BS!
