In the final moments of the third period one hero saved Canada from defeat at the hands of Team USA. That hero was Inanimate Goal Post.

We hereby nominate Inanimate Goal Post for prime minister of Canada. We'll take it over those other three guys any day.

And if you're not taking this seriously, know that Inanimate Goal Post already has its own campaign website.

IN ROD WE TRUST.
