This was supposed to be Canada’s shining moment, to win the sport that they consider their own on home soil.

A day later, supporters have begun to piece together a comeback plan. Team Canada has definitely carved out a much harder route to the finals, but not an impossible one. Coming back from this would make a medal even sweeter, especially if that medal is gold. (more…)
