Tonight Canada takes on the Czechs in the semi-finals of the World Hockey Championships with the winner going on to the finals against Finland. Go Canada Go! Last night the Americans lost a heartbreaker against the Fins with Saku Koivu getting the winner with less than 4 minutes remaining. The best part though was "during the warmup, four youngsters in Hockey Canada sweaters each held up a sign bearing a word to create the plea, Bring Back Our Jets" (tsn.ca). Hockey in Canada is as strong as ever, that is not the case elsewhere.

That game was in Minnesoda, USA and wasn't even a sellout! I can't even tell you how hard it is to get tickets to the games being played in Canada. The games in Germany and the rest of europe weren't sold out either. Funny how all these warning signs of the state of hockey popularity outside of Canada doesn't kick the NHL and platers union in the ass to get a deal done for the sake of the game. You heard it here first, a call for the return of the Canada Cup!
