Olympic hockey has us cheering

They wore the same colors when they played for the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux, but last night Zach Parise (USA) and Jonathan Toews (Canada) were on opposing sides.  One of the most talked-about matches at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver was the USA vs. Canada men’s ice hockey pairing, which the U.S.’s came away from victorious, 5-3.  For North Dakotans – it’s fun watching former stand-outs from the “home team.”  So far at these Olympic games, Parise has three assists on his record and Toews has four.
