Harper trash talks Obama after Canada's Olympic hockey win
Toronto Sun ^ | Feb. 21, 2014 | Jessica Hume

OTTAWA - The U.S. president now owes Prime Minister Stephen Harper two cases of beer — Samuel Adams brand, specifically.

The friendly bet was made earlier in the week in Mexico, where the two leaders met for the North American Leaders' Summit.

After the Canadian women's Olympic hockey team came back to tie their Yankee rivals in the last minute of the game and win the gold in overtime, Harper announced via Twitter he was looking forward to his case of beer from Barack Obama. After the Canadian men's Olympic team defeated their American rivals Friday in a 1-0 shutout, Harper tweeted: "Like I said, #teamusa is good but #wearewinter." Then, to Obama, he said: "I look forward to my two cases of beer."

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Twitter: "Making good on my promise: case of @SamuelAdamsBeer on the way."

Canada was quiet between noon and about 2:30 p.m. Friday during the game. Even the Toronto Stock Exchange showed significantly lower than normal activity.

The country that calls hockey its national religion will likely come close to a standstill Sunday when Team Canada plays Sweden for the gold.

The only Canadian apparently not overly interested or invested in our national sport was Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair, who spent game-time talking "affordability" in Fort McMurray, Alta.

"This week we've taken our affordability tour to Richmond, B.C., the B.C. interior and Fort McMurray," Mulcair's aide, George Smith told QMI Agency. "Here's hoping our men's hockey team will follow the women's success."

Smith said the game was on in the background.

Like I said, #teamusa is good but #wearewinter. @BarackObama, I look forward to my two cases of beer. #CANvsUSA #Sochi2014

The Americans threw the match to get out of going to the White House.

You never would have seen this as a headline: “Canadian Prime Minister trash talks Reagan.” And that’s because the world’s leaders respected Reagan.

Obum’a will send a case of this one, paid for by US taxpayers no doubt.

http://gizmodo.com/i-drank-a-200-bottle-of-sam-adams-for-science-1469881907

So, here’s the thing: It’s good. It’s excellent in fact. But is it “200 dollars good?” Obviously, that’s subject to your tastes, but for me, there’s no way. For about $40 more, you could buy a bottle of Macallan 21 year. Or you could buy two bottles of Lagavulin and still have $40 left to spend on dinner. To me, a whole bottle of this just wouldn’t make sense, but, then again, I don’t have money to burn.

Calling in the bet for two cases of beer is now considered “trash talking”?

Jeez...

If America won, Harper would've had to send Obama a couple Toronto Male Models.

I guess T. J. Oshie won't be Hillary Clinton's running mate. Apologies to the replacement hostess who mentioned Obama and Princess Hillary that night.

Check out the national anthem from the 1991 NHL all-star game held in Chicago.

"Trash Talks"? Just for asking for the beer he won? Obama and his team really are thinned-skinned.

And what about Justin Bieber? Did Harper say we had to keep him?

Guess they threw the game against Finland, too.

Most gutless thing I’ve ever seen. The perfect personification of Obama’s America.

"The Americans threw the match to get out of going to the White House."

Like the old Iraq and n. Korea, they may end up finding out what happens in tyrannical dictatorship when Olympians fail to bring glory to the fatherland. You don't embarrass a Hussein and get away with it...
