History was made today as Slovenia advances to the quarterfinals… where they will be waxed like a surfboard against Sweden.
But this was an incredible accomplishment. Like the Kings winning the Stanley Cup. Like the Jets winning the Super Bowl. Like me having sex with Kate Upton.
Kopitar scored again, and each time a Kings player scores in the tournament, I curse Darryl Sutter.
It’s a very cool accomplishment for Kopitar and his dad. Much salutations to them both.
With Canada and the US seemingly on a collision course for the gold medal game and Kopi’s team refusing to be eliminated like a J.C. Penny store, will these Kings have ANY emotion left?
This time next week there will be NHL hockey again. (Okay, so its a make-up Buffalo/Carolina game, but at least I don’t have to wake up at 4:30am to watch it)
The much travelled Olympic Kings will have to fly to Colorado THEN to Canada that night after the game to face Calgary the next night. This is taxing not only on the body but on the mind. How can you go from playing in medal games to getting up for the Flames?
Anyone else see the video of the Cuban player who swings a BAT at the HEAD of a pitcher who just threw a beanball?
