Game Day: Swiss, Again



Okie Dokie, children.

Did anyone else wake up this morning with a great sense of excitement and nervousness all mixed up into one? Kind of like the glorious hangover breakfast bowl you get at Jack in the Box... the one with every breakfast food imaginable mashed together. Well, that is what I'm feeling at the moment. Three o'the clock can't get here soon enough. And hey, this one is on NBC!

Great games yesterday. Belarus really gave the Swiss a challenge. And that Latvia game, whoa! I thought they would get blown away but they nearly won, in overtime. I went to bed before the end of the Slovakia game and was surprised to hear they only won 4-3. I believe it was 4-1 or 4-2 when I went to bed. Oh, and some other country played as well. Elimination round... doesn't get any better than this!!

The Games literally could not have started any better for the US Americans. Now it is time to click on all cylinders. Have you noticed we have accomplished all of this pretty much without production from our top two lines? Hiller can win a game on his own. It is extremely scary. Time for Parise, Stastny, Kane, Kessel, and the rest of the big boys to step up to the plate. The Swiss will be physical, but are not gifted as much offensively as some of the other countries. We need a couple of big goals from our top two lines and we will be fine.

Gotta breathe. Here's hoping I don't have a heart attack before, during, or after the game.

Get it done boys.
