Women are not very good at hockey*. I’m sorry to say it, but it’s true.
After catching a bit of the USA vs Canada gold medal game yesterday, I came away unimpressed with the quality of the sport I was watching. Generally, in Olympic sports, the female competition is a decent approximation of the men’s. Sometimes it’s even superior. But ice hockey is not one of them.
In fact, if puberty sponsored a sport, this might be it. Awkward for everyone!
My opinion crystallized later in the evening when I saw a late-night replay of the Missouri High School State Championship on FSN. Either of these two schools from Middle America would beat Canada roughly 200-0 on their worst night. And these are high school kids. In Missouri.
Equality is good. We can all agree on that, right? Good. But it doesn’t need to go tit for tat. Us men can have some things and you women can have other things and it’s all good. So let’s end this ice hockey charade.

In other Olympic news- Kim Yu-Na is a star. Boner Stabone is dead. And Shani Davis hates you with the passion of a thousand Sean Penn’s.
