Hey! Go tell your boss to fuck off and put on North America/Sweden. Team USA is butt and already eliminated, but the U23 North Americans are so good and so fast and should be your favorite team unless you’re some weirdo from Canada.

Look at this shit, from No. 1 overall Leafs pick, America’s own Auston Matthews:


That zone entry by Connor McDavid! That stickhandling by Matthews!

TNA followed up with a quick second goal, from Panthers center—and proud American—Vincent Trocheck. The Swedes got one back from Filip Forsberg, and about midway through the first, it’s 2-1 North America.

Go! Watch! It’s on ESPN, and online streams aren’t hard to find. If North America wins in regulation, they’re through to the semis.

Update, like literally right after I hit publish: Johnny Gaudreau! 3-1! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
