WASHINGTON--Canada's hockey victory over the U.S. in a 3-2 overtime win for the gold was viewed by President Obama, reported White House press secretary Robert Gibbs via Twitter.
"Wow unreal game...POTUS watched OT in his office right off the Oval Office - all of us are so proud of our great team," Gibbs wrote.
The win, which handed Canada a record 14 gold winter Olympic medals--though the U.S. had more overall medals, a record 37, a storyline that should make everyone happy---means Obama owes Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper a case of beer.
Harper bet if the U.S. won, Harper would send Obama some Yuengling beer. Obama now owes Harper some bottles or cans of Molson Canadian
