USA Beats Canada....The Olympic Ratings Are In

I won't keep this long, but last night was one of the best hockey games I've seen in a long time. It's not just because of the "upset" in a preliminary round match up, but the energy drew me in. A combo of USA and Canada fans matching chants for their respective teams while watching what is basically an NHL all star game that matters more than just home field.

It was about national pride and not playoff positioning. Both teams showed that this was the game both of them respectively circled on their calenders. This was the game that mattered and there was no tomorrow (even if there is).

It was fun, but the bigger debate was who was watching and did the sport of hockey show up in the only numbers that matter in business.

Ratings.....and the verdict is......
