Russian National Team Triumphs 4-0 over Team USA in World Hockey Championship Semifinals in Czech Republic
Interesting… no mention of this at all in the establishment US media, even though NBC Sports showed the game live. Or for that matter ANY media. Guess they only publish stories about Team USA victories.
By contrast, the photo below shows the reaction in Russia to the hockey news.
Take a look at all current sports headlines at Google News:

And now, 35 years later, nothing. Not a word. Because we lost.
Which is stupid. One learns from failures as much as successes.
Besides, these are merely human definitions based on our expectations.
Enlightened souls know that there is no such thing as “failures” or “successes,” only lessons.
Which applies to life in general, not just sports.
The establishment media silence merely illustrates how shallow and ignorant these New World Order heralds are.

Separately, in the other semifinal, Canada defeated the host Czech team 2-0 to set up a final against the Russian national team.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken to the ice in one of Sochi’s Olympic sports arenas. The Russian leader played along the country’s other top officials, sportsmen and businessmen in an NHL (Night Hockey League) match, and scored a goal.
Guess we should expect that story or the photo to make it to the American news media, either.
