The Internet Reacts To Canada's Olympic Hockey Win Against The USA
With eight gold medals over in hockey over the years, Canada has their eye on a ninth after defeating the USA in the men's semifinals. While both teams were good sports at the end of the heart-racing 1-0 match, the Internet was not so genial. Probably because now we're stuck with Bieber.
Here are 11 of the best responses to the USA shut out.
#1 - Some said it was the natural order of things.
Canada will always win hockey. Like Lucy will always pull the football away from Charlie Brown. AS THE UNIVERSE INTENDED.— Scott Weinberg (@scottEweinberg) February 21, 2014
#2 - And some were outraged at a clear violation of the mythical '4th quarter'.
Yeah. I thought hockey was 4 quarters! When did they change? Knew something was up w/ 2 Canadian referees. We'd have it in the 4th for sure.— Joe Smith. Really. (@youravgpastor) February 21, 2014
#3 - At least one person was completely honest.
And 95% of Americans go back to not caring about hockey— Wolf of SesameStreet (@uhh_elijah) February 21, 2014
#4 - And others were BRUTALLY honest.
Canada has beaten the US back-to-back in hockey and healthcare.— Warren Holstein (@WarrenHolstein) February 21, 2014
#5 - Some celebrated the freedom to finally get to place the blame.
My favorite thing about hockey is how you pick who to blame before the season/tournament and then wait patiently for your opportunity.— Meesh (@HockeyMeesh) February 21, 2014
#6 - While another was grateful for the restorative powers of a Canadian victory.
