At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada beat Team USA in overtime to capture the gold medal Men’s Olympic ice hockey.  And We haven’t forgotten.  While tomorrow’s game at 12pm ET won’t be for the gold medal, it would be huge for USA hockey if they could defeat their two biggest rivals in the same Olympic games, on the way to the gold medal game.

Jamie Winterstern directed a fantastic minute long video to let Canada know that even though hockey is their national sport, they better be ready tomorrow when Team USA comes knocking at the door.

Last night’s show was in question all the way up until about 8:50 pm due to BlogTalkRadio.com being hit with a cyber attack. Luckily they got the site back up in time for TSB Radio at 9 pm.  With Kevin going on his hiatus, Matt (@Dailystache) made a very successful debut.  It was a great show and we talked about the USA Men’s hockey team defeating the Czech Rep., NBA Trade Deadline, MLB, and more.  Special thanks to our regular callers Eddie (@xTomatoez), David (@Graves9), and James (@MidnightBashem), who did a great job.

Today we celebrate the 237th birthday of the greatest country in the world.  The good ol’ US of A!  Old Glory will be flying proudly all across the country today while we all celebrate freedom, pickup trucks, dogs, beer, baseball and BBQ. That got me thinking…which athletes or teams have made me feel patriotic?  Who makes me proud to be an American?

Since you wanted to know, here they are in no particular order…

Oscar Pistorius Guns

 

At around 3:00AM Valentine’s Day morning, I was having trouble sleeping and logged on to Twitter.  The breaking, or should I say heartbreaking news was that South African double amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius had shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.  Early reports stated that Pistorius thought Steenkamp was a burglar and subsequently fatally shot her as she was attempting to deliver a Valentine’s Day surprise.  As the news developed, Pistorius was taken in to custody and charged with murder.  So was it an honest mistake, or did Pistorius murder Reeva Steenkamp?
