Women's hockey, who do you think you're fooling?

Canada's domination of the Olympic Sport has everyone asking the question, "Why are we doing this to ourselves?"

At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Canadian women's hockey team just can't win. The scores are favour-able: an 18-0 victory against Slovakia last Saturday; 10-1 against the Swiss on Monday, 13-1 against Sweden yesterday, all results that challenged headline writers to find new synonyms for "rout." The problem: If the Canadians continue to pot goals every few minutes against weaker opponents, they are accused of running up the score; and if they hold back, they risk making their sport look bad and humiliating their opponents even more.
