    Default "Greatest Collapse in WJC History"

    "It’s been billed as the greatest collapse in the history of the WJC and that about sums it up. If there’s been one worse than that, I don’t recall it. It might just be, as the kids like to say these days, the greatest “epic fail” in Canadian international hockey. Ever.

    So if you really want to know the truth of what happened last night in Buffalo, it was really no different than the collapse against the Americans in 2004 or the overtime loss to the U.S. last year in Saskatoon, albeit on a far grander scale than anything we've ever seen or may see again.

    Yup, that's hockey, that's junior hockey.

    And maybe, just maybe, it's the hockey gods' way of balancing the scales a touch and sending along a little message, as hockey gods are wont to do sometimes.

    Perhaps something along the lines of, Stay humble, Canada, stay humble."

    In anticipation for this event I took the liberty of digging up Jack's ice skates. I thought they might come in handy.

    Good idea except we'd have to add the Soonet Russia to accomodate those who change their loyalty when the Americans lose.

    PRIDE..................Someday America will understand the concept.

    In your anger you're mistaking a change of loyalty for a recognition of a magnificent job by another nation.

    I have always been a big fan of Russian hockey. Like us, they love to cut you down to size on the ice once in a while.

    It's not that you're the best, it's that you're the loudest.

    And, on cue, Russia and the U.S. slap you down, again and again
