You have to crawl around on your knees? That doesn't make for a very fast-paced game. Our sticks were of standing-up size.

ya those arent mini sticks. Those are just floor hockey sticks. Mini sticks are, as the name suggests, mini. Maybe..2 feet? Something like that.

Well, the ball moves quickly, but the people dont! You play it in close quarters so you dont have far to go. Walls are good so you dont lose the ball/puck every 30 seconds.

Only in Canada would this mini sticks arena exist in a hotel!

That is awesome!!! I want a picture next to that!

ps: nevermind...I was confused and thought you knew mini sticks were played on knees, kayte. Floor hockey is different....something you play in gym class where u just run around.

I got blamed for breaking one of those stupid things that my brother won in a tournement. They gave out those instead of trophies. IT WASNT ME! Stupid being the youngest and getting blamed for everything.

AHHHH! Canada tied the game with 5.4 seconds left and then won in SHOOTOUT!!!!
Gold medal Monday!
My heart is going at a ridiculous rate!

19,000 people singing O Canada is giving me goosebumps. Except now they are 10 seconds ahead of the music and it sounds silly.

What a game yesterday, totally nervwrecking!

The Swedish commentator had to go for a pee 3 times.

The Slovakians did everything they could to stop us, but we were the better team on the day :)

Woooooooah even Steve Yzerman was impressed =)
