Sullen. Sullen pouty babies. Did you SEE the US Women's hockey team at the medal ceremony?
I reminded me of when Nancy Kerrigan won the silver medal, or rather lost the gold medal to Oksana Baiul. Suddenly she was broadcast live and uncut and a little snarky. So snarky I bought it when I heard that the camera team was just sick of her.
Perhaps the NBC camera team is just sick of every one of the women on the US Hockey team, because they showed each impassively getting a silver medal, then either: scowling, or glaring into space, or throwing a face tantrum. A face tantrum that said "MY GOLD MEDAL MINE MINE." It made me think that I might wake up tomorrow to news that someone had tried to break their knees before the game.
If you didn't see it, you may miss it forever, because I don't think Our US Pride Machine is going to let the photos circulate. But here is one on Getty of them before they get their medals. And then after the medal. And then after they get their broccoli while the crowd is shouting "U!S!A!U!S!A!" just to get someone on Team Bershon to smile.
And don't even mention the hulking USA player who shoved that Canadian player right down on to the ice. Just tacky. Nancy Kerrigan tacky.
