Go teams Go!

No surprise I'm pulling for Team USA and the Tre Kronor to advance to the Gold medal game, but the quarterfinals are first. We get the Swiss. I'm hoping they're nice and tired from their shootout win yesterday. The Eye should be well rested and very focused. I can't believe I'm liking this guy more and more, but I read the other day that he had a shamrock painted on his mask (along with that hideously beefcake Uncle Sam!) to honor Jim Craig, goalie of the 1980 gold medal squad. I wouldn't love hockey without the Miracle on Ice and I'd like nothing more than for 2010's team to capture gold 30 years later. I only wish Miller was as foxy as Mr. Craig, who's still looking pretty good.
I'm not sure if my love of country outweighs my love of Henrik, it's a close call. Let's just say I'd like Team Sweden to do well. My second favorite gold medal is the last, Tre Kronor in 2006. The whole team hightailed it from Turin to Stockholm to celebrate and although I can no longer find footage of Henrik's gold medal dance, this montage includes my second favorite moment where on route to city central a fellow player hands Henrik toothpaste and hair gel. Brilliant! Who doesn't want a repeat of that? (note:look away directly after Henrik if you'd don't want to have Forsberg's uggo face forced upon you!)

I actually like all the teams but the home team. Anyone but Canada is the current mantra, and hopefully Russia will take care of them this evening, I'm in the midst of a move and while I'll be awaiting the games with great anticipation I may be incommunicato for the rest of the Olympics. We'll wrap up next week hopefully with smiling faces. In the meantime feel free to email me:

Happy Olympics everybody!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
