Hype for the game
I mean the US-Canada hockey game, Winter Olympics 2010:

U.S.-Canada hockey showdown is the hype of Vancouver Olympics
"We don't like to lose at anything, especially to our big brother to the south," said Jason Maxwell, 31, referring to the American team.
Canadians screamed out their love of hockey into a passionate roar on Sunday, creating an ocean of red and flag-waving support for Canada's long-awaited Olympic showdown with the United States.
Waking Its Neighbors, U.S. Upsets Canada
The Americans wore their 1960 Olympic jerseys in tribute to the first U.S. hockey team to win an Olympic gold medal. It was during that tournament that the United States last beat Canada in an Olympic men's hockey game, prevailing 2-1. It was also 30 years ago to the day Monday, the U.S. Olympic team beat the Soviet Union in its now legendary "Miracle on Ice" game.
lol. I dunno. I guess Hetalia gets to me once again... it was a great game. I only saw the last 2 seconds, I think. I saw the last goal by the Americans. It's funny cuz I used to think that hockey is one of the most boring sports ever, but I was so hyped up while I was looking for a good site to watch it online. I hope there's a rematch.
