That's frustrating, cuz Canada, by and large, has the best looking female hockey players in the world. I know it's not a beauty pageant, but the Canadian women's hockey team at least makes watching women's hockey more enjoyable when they're still playing in the tournament, than when they're not in it.

Ok, if this thread was about a men's sport, do you think you would have written the same thing?

Probably not since he clearly prefers women.

I always enjoy watching the US vs Canada hockey games. The women’s games even more so. They’re fierce. I watched the final last year and it was one of the best hockey games I’ve ever watched.

It can be argued that NBA players are the male equivalent of Supermodels. I know plenty of women who watch men's bb for the eye candy.

Wow, sounds like that was quite a game!


"after 5 minutes of celebration on the ice"

Not an easy thing to bounce back from.


Props to Finland for their fine performance!
