Junior Losers and Spirit

Once again, the Juniors held a lead going into the third period of the gold medal game. Once again, they lost. sigh. I wouldn’t mind the loss so much if it was a proper loss; but this third period implosion has to stop. It makes it a harder blow to take. The worst part of it, though, is the fact that they lost to Canada Jr. Lose to the Russians? Fine! Lose to the host Finns? Fine! But Canada Jr.? Not. Cool.

As unfortunate as it is, there’s only one international ice hockey tournament that counts this year: this summer’s World Cup. As long as we win that, this loss will be forgotten.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve seen the initial batch of photos from Spirit including todays panoramas. I like the 3D image, but I don’t have 3D glasses. So to get that stereoscopic feel, I made this animated gif. Sort of works at showing depth.
