Wilderness Walk: No Bronze for You

Martin Rose

The US men's team laid down an egg in the bronze medal game yesterday. Of course that means "Michael" Granlund will be bringing back a shiny new medal to dangle in front of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.

Greetings Wilderness! It has been awhile since we last spoke in this forum. Olympic hockey is putting on it's final showing for us this morning in the gold medal game between Canada and Sweden. Of course the bronze medal game yesterday was a complete dud for the US men's squad, but at least we won't have to listen to the Olympic broadcasters mispronounce Mikael Granlund anymore.

Hope you're enjoying the game folks, here's a little reading material to help you out.
