Team USA Loses Men's Ice Hockey, So America Will Have To Keep Justin Bieber
On Friday in Sochi, the U.S. and Canada men's hockey teams went head-to-head in the Olympic hockey semifinals, which — spoiler alert — ended badly for America. Canadians, on the other hand, left the ice with a victory of 1-0. Halfway into the game, Canadian forward Jamie Benn broke the tie and scored the only goal of the game. Canada will now advance to play against Sweden in the gold-medal round, and the U.S. hockey team will have to return home in defeat.
Now, no-one takes an Olympic loss gently, but this one particularly stings. Canada and America are longtime ice hockey rivals, in both the men's and women's version of the sport, and often go head-to-head in final Olympic rounds. On Thursday, Canada beat Team USA to the gold in women's hockey... and now this.
"There's a lot of animosity, a lot of feelings like there's something to prove between both teams," Canada forward Jonathan Toews told CBS News.
He's not the only one to feel that way. A few reactions from the game...
Oh, and then there was this.
Sorry, America, but we'll have to keep Justin Bieber for another four years. At least.
