Before tonight's Women's Hockey gold medal game - the much anticipated showdown between the US and Canada - MSNBC was reporting live from the Molson Beer Garden. They showed us the buffet, and then a number of tables full of raucous Canadian fans. The reporter went up to a table of four - two couples - and urged them, "Are you guys excited about tonight's GAAAAAME?"
"YEAHHHHH!!!" the girls squealed, as their boyfriends/husbands shrugged somewhat indifferently
"What are you most excited about?" The reporter inquired, perhaps expecting some sort of response about the wide open play in the Women's game due to the illegality of body checks.
"LUONGO IS PLAYING!" One of the girls screamed, referring to Canada's MEN'S goalkeeper, and Vancouver star, Roberto Luongo, who most certainly was not playing in this Women's gold medal game.
"That's tomorrow night, babe," Her boyfriend muttered quietly, but loud enough for the camera to pick up.
The announcer quickly ended the interview and moved on to another table.
