Olympic Mens hockey gold medal game with spoilers of course (live 10:30PM EST)

I wasn't expecting to watch this game - I didn't enjoy watching the US team. They just weren't good enough to be entertaining. I watched a little bit of of Finland v Sweden - a HUGE rivalry and it was pretty good. But somehow, Germany won the group over BOTH Sweden and Finland. Not sure how that happened. They beat fricken CANADA in the semi. NO IDEA how that happened. Germany has never been a threat AT ALL in olympic hockey.

And now they are in the gold medal game against Russia - the only team in the tournament with a handful of NHL quality players. Russia is going to win...

So I have to at least watch a bit in hopes that somehow Germany can make a game of it. IF they do, it will be HUGE! Russia HAS to win. THey've been waiting for YEARS for a return to the gold medal that used to be theirs just for showing up. They had a horrible showing in Sochi. They can't lose... ESPECIALLY to Germany. That would be worse than 1980.

Go GERMANY!

Stolen from twitter:

Germany’s hockey gold medal odds were 66-to-1 before the #Olympics2018 tournament. So this is really fun for someone.

Russian hockey players sing banned national anthem over Olympic anthem at medal ceremony

No flag at the Closing Ceremony. No anthem. No medals for Russia in the record book.

But that didn’t mean the Russians couldn’t sing. And after the Olympic Athletes from Russia topped Germany in a thrilling gold medal hockey game, that’s exactly what they did.

4-3 in OT. Go OAR!-Only because they stuck their thumbs in the eye of the the most corrupt organization in the world... Can't take anything away from the Germans, tho. Hell of an effort for a team not expected to do much.

The only organization that is more corrupt that the IOC is the Russian anti-doping agency. They got busted with a national effort similar to what the East Germans were doing. The only reason that ANY Russians were at the Olympics was due to strong 'negotiation' from Russia - I suspect many members of the IOC are richer from that negotiation.
