Let's Do It For Our Country

by Anne

Shout out to Grease 2 (aka the Greatest Movie of All Time)

Ok, so with Team Austria already completed their cleaning up at the IIHF World Championships Division 1, the Penguins STILL between rounds and Calgary STILL not having yet elimidated San Jose, I find myself in a bind.

Therefore, with no other hockey to turn to, I look to Team USA. on Friday, the teams shedjwool was announced. Feel free to stalk the American player of your choice. Their highly jam-packed (read: they must have closed practices too, right?) practice shedjwool can be found here.

You can attend their practices! Maine?! What the heck? I'm pretty sure Buffalo has some empty ice rinks that Team USA can use! So WHAT if Maine is technically the closest you can be to Halifax while still technically being the in the continental United States.

FYI, here's the IIHF World Championship Tournament game schedule:

What's that? You want a photo array of the gentlemen appearing in the tournament? OK!
