Bah, what's up with this lame Swedish "we're gonna lose against the Czechs" mentality?? I sure hope the players on the ice aren't like this but I've seen many fans on this and other boards that say stuff like that. This is the difference between North Americans and many Swedes, Canadians and Americans don't give up beforehand while many (hopefully not all) Swedes go like "Oh, we're gonna lose, we suck, the other team is better"... I'm pretty sure the American Olympic team from 1980 didn't have that mentality when they won their gold. Heart is at least as important as pure skill in many games. And it's not just this tournament but many Swedes seem to just never believe in themselves if they struggle somewhat. What's up with that?? And if they do manage to win it's not because of "skill and heart" but then it's more like "Oh, we were lucky I guess". Man, us Swedes need to get some heart and believe in ourselves, in good times and in bad! Never be willing to be second best! It's all about commitment!
