The U.S. Men's Hockey Team opened their 2018 Olympics with a loss to Snovenkia or something like that by a score of 3ish-2 in all likelihood, though it could have been just 1, or perhaps a shutout?
"Not much to say other than it was a disappointment," the American captain, whoever it is, most likely said more or less. "You obviously want to get off to a strong start"—that sounds right, doesn't it?—"and now we've put the pressure on ourselves early."
"But when the going gets tough, the tough get going," we bet he would have added.
The Slovankistanians, meanwhile, were ecstatic following the win, you would think.
"We [are] very happy to win game," you have to imagine the one guy who could speak some English said at some point. "Good for country. We love country."
The Americans will have a day to regroup yada yada yada—you know how this stuff goes—before facing Yugoslavia, we're guessing, this Friday.
The group stage continues tomorrow as—"powerhouses"? Sure why not—powerhouses Finland and Germany meet up and maybe two guys will even fight or something? That'd be pretty cool.
