Whenever the Olympics are in a country with a favorite sport, the pressure on individuals participating in that sport is more intense.
This year, in Vancouver, the Canadian hockey teams are teaching David Bowie a thing or two about being under pressure.
With millions watching every second of their existence in the Games, the job of the men's team didn't get any easier when the women's team began their tournament by winning their first two games by a combined score of 23-1.
On Tuesday night, the men got their chance to compete and lived up to the hype.
In a game against Norway that, after the first period, wasn't as close as the score would indicate, the host nation ran away with an 8-0 victory. Jarome Iginla posted a hat trick and Roberto Luongo stopped all 15 shots he faced and Canada remained undefeated in the Games.
