A good game but Canada should have been in the championship. What is better for ratings, however, than a "rematch" of the World Cup teams from two years ago?

And NBC just devoted 4 minutes to the match in primetime. It's like they're stuck in the middle ages. Times are changing NBC. We want to see more athletics and less drama queens.
