Cheering on our men's hockey team?

What's a little sleep right - after all, it's hockey, it's our game whether it's played in prime time or the middle of the night.

Despite some hiccups along the way Canada will indeed play for gold in Olympic men's hockey.

Our boys will take on Sweden in the men's final at 4 a.m. Pacific time.

We will be shooting for a second consecutive gold and third in four years.

In fact, a Canadian win Sunday will give the Canadian hockey program seven of the last eight gold medals in men's and women's hockey combined.

The only blemish was in Turin in 2006 when the men failed to get out of the quarter-finals.

So, with everything on the line including the pride of an entire nation, our question to you - will you deprive yourself of a little sleep and get up at 4 a.m. Sunday to cheer on Team Canada?
