Team USA Hockey – Patrick Kane Having Time Of Life At Olympics!

Winning Hockey Gold Would Just Put Exclamation Point On Young Blackhawk’s Experience.

Having snowboarder Shaun White call to hang out made Patrick Kane feel like a cool dude. Rubbing shoulders with good-luck charm Vince Vaughn in a Team USA jersey left an impression. And nothing created a more lasting memory for Kane than eating lunch alongside boyhood hero Jaromir Jagr of the Czech team in the Olympic Village cafeteria.

But as he reflected on the significance of the biggest hockey game of his life when Team USA plays Canada in Sunday's Olympic final, no personal interaction meant more than the one Kane initiated Saturday.

"I hadn't talked to my grandpa (Donald Kane) in a while, so I called him this morning in Buffalo to see how he's doing and how he's liking the games,'' Kane told the Tribune in an interview Saturday. "He's 83, a big baseball guy, but one of those people I'v

  • The other night when Canada played Slovakia the wheels started to come off in third period so if they dont re-group for today team USA might be going home with the gold,all respect for Canada though.

  • This ought to be a great game. I note that North American hockey has just been dominant during this Olympics.

  • This reminds me of this one time I was watching WWF back in the day. I think it was the hometown hero Brett Hart vs Sgt Slaughter in Calgary so Brett has the mic and says to the Sarge, "we got a word for you up here eh"..."and that word is HOSER!" and then the crowd went wild chanting HOSER! HOSER! HOSER! and I loled my ass off. Good luck Canada! :D

  • Why did they put the game on so early? At 3:15pm ET? They should have scheduled the game for tonight. I'm thinking they wanted to avoid any riot situations at night when Canada wins the gold.

    In any case, we're walking away from the Olympics with the most gold medals, while the yanks are walking away with the most bronze.

    • We also won the most silver medals also. We also will break the record for the most medals by any nation ever. Canada also did great in these Olympics and should be proud. If it were to win gold in the hockey game, it would break the record for the most gold set by Norway and Russia, currently you are tied.
      Just like you guys predicted Canada would win the most medals, which was totally underestimating the strength of the other countries, you guys also seem to overestimate your hockey team.

    • I'm worried, not cocky, and personally wouldn't spend 2 seconds bragging about "most gold medals" or anything like that.

      Because.... wait for it...



      here it comes...


























      Because...


      I AM CANADIAN!


      LOL

    • lol, yep, I would be shocked if I saw a Canadian being cocky, lol...

      But I will expect it after the games close because, after all, you guys threw a great party. Had it not been for the sad death at the beginning and the inclement weather, these games would likely be rated as the best ever and may still be. It was a great job and a great performance by the canucks.
      Of course, we still win the most medals, no matter what happens today.

      USA 6 CANADA 4

      oops, that's my American side being More..

  • As I said yesterday on another upload, a gold medal match is not the same as a round robin match, you yanks have much to learn about hockey....

    good luck
