Canadian in Sydney, missing the %$@#&!@ World Junior tourney in my hometown (poor travel planning I know) and I want to see a game!

Anyone know a sports bar in Sydney's Inner West that's showing the Semi-finals or the final? And more to the point - anyone want to join me to watch?

It's Canada vs. the Swedes or the Fins on Jan 4, and the Gold game on Jan 6.

OK for you Canadian's out there - our Cdn Consulate has come through!... sort of.

Best I can get, is Jackson's on George in the CBD and Victoria Cross in N. Sydney will be showing the game if its on Fox Sports.

I can't figure out if Fox Sports is going to show the game regardless, or only be showing it if the Gold Medal game is Canada vs the US (*sigh*) they are doing a tape-delayed showing at 11pm EST, which makes it a Jan 6 at 3pm in Sydney game.

One World Sports wasn't spectacularly helpful, so I have no idea what they are showing.

Go Canada go!

[b]I Feel For You!! I'm actually planning on moving to OZ for a year in Feb. and am a little concerned myself with the hockey situation! (although i'm pretty sure my team -- the Maple Leafs won't be winning the cup while im away..)

Anyway the Canadians beat Finland last night and the USA lost... too bad. So we are playing Russia in the finals!!!! It would have been nice to see the Canadians beat the Americans in hockey again but I will settle for watching them beat the Russians!

Hey Canuck Girl, even though you're a Leafs fan...
A couple Cdn's and I will be here in Sydney in Feb if you want some help getting your feet under you.

There is a New South Wales ice hockey club, but I didn't want to lug all my gear over here, and I doubt you will either. (Watch out for 'hockey' - they mean field hockey) I don't know if you play summer hockey, but there is something weird about walking out of 28 degree weather and into an ice rink.

Canada vs. Russia - still an excellent game! but now we have to find out if Fox will show it...

Hey there.. Sorry i didnt get your post until after the game... Im actually an aussi lad over here in canada atm and was staying in Fernie for my 1st time snowboarding when the game was actually on.. So we're kinda vice versa lol

I know that the score at the end of the 2nd period vs. the fins was 3-0 canada's way.. I mean hell you guys just dominate the damn sport but it's so awesum.

It's really hard to see it anywhere in Australia because few of us have cable and even fewer places actually get a hockey channel, compared to here where everyone has cable and there are at least 3 channels dedicated to hockey 24-7. If you managed to catch a game over there please let me know how you got it and where.. I've fallen in love with the game!

Cheers! Ausboy
