Doing Quite Well Now [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]
February 24th, 2010 by Dan

Would it be appropriate for me to take credit for US Olympic dominance in these games thanks to my little pep talk last week? As I write this post, the US is ahead in medal count with 26 over Germany’s 23 and tied for most golds (with Germany) with 7. All we’ve got to do is hold steady and we’ve got this Olympics in the bag.

Men’s Ice Hockey made some major strides in the pool play rounds by going undefeated and even beating Team Canada earning themselves the first seed in the playoff tournament. Their first game will be against a Swiss squad they already beat pretty soundly, which means we’re more or less set for the round and to at least compete for the bronze medal. Poor Canada, who plays their first game tonight, has to beat Germany and then Russia to even have a chance at the bronze. They’ve got quite the uphill climb. I almost hope they do get to the finals to play one last time against the USA only to be crushed underneath our skates for the gold on their home turf. A guy can dream, right?

    Instead of the Colbert bump, it’s the Dan Mesa bump.
