That's Five, Canada!
Canada wins its fifth straight gold medal in the World Junior Hockey Championship.
We take hockey very seriously in Canada. Even if you don't follow it, as a Canadian, you just know about the Loonie in center ice at the Olympics. You just know.
And where else does the leader of the country get his pic taken with a guy painted gold, just cuz he asked? (Wish I could find the pic, but I saw him do it during the game.)
It was an exciting game.
What Canada is all about. Canada/Russian game. Canada ties it up with 5.4 seconds remaining.
Goes to a shootout. Canada wins and goes on to the gold medal game against Sweden.
