Canada beats USA in women’s hockey: Fans and media react on Twitter

Ah, hell. Canada’s women’s hockey team came back to beat Team USA and win the gold medal. All the air was sucked out of the Gamedayr office; we’ve pretty much ground to a halt.

Nobody likes being flogged by their asexual cousin, so this felt like a good time to check Twitter’s pulse. There was a hearty amount of American patriotism. Not the “F*** YEAH, WE RULE!” kind. More of the “f*** them, we still rule.” variety.

Nevertheless it was entertaining and helped salve the wound of such a jarring defeat. Here are some of the best reactions from fans and media out in the Twitterverse.
