It has all come down to this.
We didn’t pick the teams. We wouldn’t have put them head-to-head until the gold medal game but let’s be honest, we can’t handle that. We can’t even handle today. Before we close our office doors and pretend to be throwing things and shrieking for work, let’s face off WUYS-style one last time.
Foxy Friday: Team USA vs. Team Canada
You be the judge.
Team USA Goalies:
Team Canada goalies:
I think this frame is really Carey Price vs. the world, but perhaps you’re into over-long hair and disagree.
Team USA defense:
I tried to help everyone out by picking photos of Justin Faulk and John Carlson that mitigate their fondness for 80’s metal hair.
I even cropped a puppy out of Ryan McDonagh’s photo because that’s cheating.
Team Canada defense:
I’d have gone wtih four pics of Donuts (for each of his goals), but who knew Dan Hamhuis looked like that?
We hear Shea Weber is good at ping pong. Invite him to that summertime charity tournament, right? He can bring his short, stocky partner.
Team USA forwards (Part 1):
It’s not easy to find a viable photo of Phil Kessel. Never have our makeover skills been so sorely needed! Shine on, TJ Oshie, and hit him with your light.
Also, Blake Wheeler coming through with some unexpected skill in this round.
Team Canada forwards (Part 1):
Is any competition fair when Patrick Sharp competes? His hair could win this on its own.
Speaking of hair, I used the Ryan Getzlaf Time Machine here. It had to be done. Balance it against choosing a photo where Jimmy Howard doesn’t have crazy eyes – I tried to put the pretty filter on everyone.
Final round now, who’s going home a winner? I saved the best for last.
Team USA forwards (Part 2):
A half-smile is all Patrick Kane is allowed, like a handicap in golf. Otherwise he wins every category, carrying Team USA to indisputable, upstate NY victory.
Paul Stastny going for the humor vote, because I could not find another decent photo. Come on Colorado, get on it.
Team Canada forwards (Round 2):
I don’t know who can withstand this. Even Bergy’s giving you that look like he knows what you’re thinking about Crosby.
Then the JTs. Sympathy points for Tavares are acceptable, but I’d rather have bonus points for seeing those glasses again.
You tell us: Which country has the foxiest Olympic squad? Is it really a contest if you win either way? We’re gonna need a bigger podium.
