Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Team USA Advances to Quarterfinals

New, comments

In case you slept in this morning, Team USA slipped past Germany 5-4 to advance to the Quarterfinals in the IIHF Worlds on Thursday. We won't know our opponent until a little later today, but honestly...what difference does it make? Just give us the trophy now and save everyone the trouble. Tomorrow's an off-day for the tournament, so maybe spend the day watching Rambo, Rocky IV, Red Dawn, Miracle, and Saving Private Ryan to put yourself in the right frame of mind. And if our opponent is France, just watch this:

What the heck is the deal with Minnesota? I've been to Minnesota, and it's not that great.

To be Cup contenders, Kings and Blackhawks had to outsmart salary cap - Los Angeles Times

Hoping the cap can win a future battle with either or these teams.
