Hassel here…

Canada may think its hockey team is the best in the world, but it’s not…for now, at least. Team USA out-played the Canadians IN Canada. I saw a fan with a sign that read “Hockey is CANADA’s Sport” … That may be true, but American’s play it too, and they’re darn good. Ryan Miller gave up 3 goals, but that guy was, by FAR, the MVP. The US, and Russia, are the best two teams I’ve seen so far.

I thought the Cyclones were finally going to pull one out when they stormed back to cut the Texas A&M lead to 1 in the final minutes. I should have known better.

The Hawkeye men’s basketball team didn’t lose this weekend. In a related story, the Hawkeye men’s basketball team didn’t play.

Is there any way we can just skip the Big Ten and Big 12 wrestling championships? We know that Iowa and ISU will win, going away. This year’s national championships will be held at the Qwest Center in Omaha. That’s the only event that matters.

ISU fans will be calling it a “Cyclone State” for the next year. Iowa State clinched the ‘Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series’ championship, Sunday afternoon, with a win in gymnastics. This this info with a grain of salt.

Shawn Johnson goes from training, to recuperating. The Olympic gold-medalist tore her ACL while skiiing on vacation in Colorado. She had surgery on Tuesday, and will be in a boot for 6-weeks. Doug Johnson, Shawn’s dad, tells our Shawn Terrell that she won’t be able to train for 6-months. Johnson has yet to decide if she will try to qualify for the 2012 olympics. I’d be shocked if we see her in a major gymnastics event, again…and I don’t think this injury will have anthing to do with her decision.

3 ‘if’s” :
If the ISU men don’t beat Nebraska on Wednesday, they’ll be in last place.
If George Washington wasn’t dead, he’d turn 278 on Monday.
If you don’t want ‘Man vs. Wild’ on the Discovery Channel, start.

Remember, SoundOFF returns a week from Tonight.
