Mandatory Credit: Winslow Townson-USA TODAY SportsAs much as I would have loved to see the United States win the gold over Canada in women's Olympic hockey, I'm starting to think that maybe the right team won, after seeing Canadians react to it.

I mean… honestly, would we have really gone crazy about it if the United States won?

Absolutely not. It would certainly be nice, but I wouldn't be jumping up and down or anything.

Seeing the Canadians react to this win almost makes me want to root for their men's team against the USA today too, since they'll get a lot more satisfaction out of winning than we will.

Nah, just kidding. GO USA! BEAT CANADA!

Here are a couple of clowns on Canadian radio, celebrating their country's greatest achievement:

These videos are amazing.  So proud to be Canadian, and to have this kind of reaction to our athletes succeeding.  We just don't take our athletes' glory for granted, and know they work incredibly hard to achieve what they do.  All Canadians celebrate, cry, laugh, cheer and jump up and down when we win.  We are fans.

That being said, GO CANADA GO!  BEAT USA!
