Update: The Goose and Duck (map) will also show the Canada-US Olympic gold medal hockey game tonight / this morning at 4 AM, says a staff member there. I couldn’t really understand what The Den was telling me over the phone, but it sounded like they would show a replay of the game later in the morning. I am still waiting to hear if Paddy O’Shea’s will show the game. And for those who would rather stay home, T-Metz reports that CCTV will be showing the game live. <– Trying to double-confirm this. <– Very unclear if CCTV5 is showing part or all of the game, or highlights, given its program listings. Best bet is to head to the Irish Volunteer or Goose and Duck.
Olympic hockey fans: Good times at The Irish Volunteer (map) today with all four men’s quarterfinal hockey games, though the various slingbox feeds meant French commentary at some times, English commentary at others. There were about 30 people for the Canada-Russia game, most of them hailing from The Great White North and thus happy with the 7-3 score that prevented the entire nation from having to go into therapy. Clear signal, good vibe, breakfast for RMB35. Here are upcoming games that will be shown (I’ll add any updates to this post).

Canada-United States, Friday, 7:30 AM
