USA over Canada: Unexpected? Yes. Miracle? No.

USA over Canada: Unexpected? Yes. Miracle? No.

Almost immediately following Team USA's 5–3 preliminary round victory over Canada Sunday night, pundits and commentators were coining it one of the greatest upsets in hockey history. Whoa, there! Unexpected? Heck yes. But I'm stopping well short of ranking it in "greatest all-time upsets" territory.

Clapton and Beck pair up in TO

Clapton and Beck are the epitome of "guitar gods," and the idea of them collaborating on a short tour is pretty thrilling. The plan, apparently, is that Beck does a set, followed by Clapton, and the show finishes with a joint effort.

The Olympic break arrives at a good time for the Sabres

The Olympic break arrives at a good time for the Sabres

Sabres fans, reactionary and bloodthirsty as always, are hitting their worn-down panic buttons and pronouncing the season a total loss. Never mind that Buffalo is well-entrenched in a playoff spot and spent much of the season's first fifty games asserting itself as a playoff-worthy group; we've all come to expect doomsday scenarios with our teams, so don't confuse us with the facts. But there's the pesky reality that won't go away, if we could all just focus for a second. All playoff teams endure bad stretches at some point in the season.
