Sunday night after the Blackhawks' 5-4 shootout victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets, the second episode of "Blackhawks TV" aired on WGN. One of the highlights was a Canada v. USA "Mini-Olympics," the perfect send-off for the guys before the long Olympic break.

In the first challenge, Canadians Andrew Ladd and Jonathan Toews took on Americans Dustin Byfuglien and Patrick Kane in the "Popsicle Challenge." BRAIN FREEZE!!!!!


And for the second and final challenge, Americans Adam Burish and Kane tried to salvage a win for the States, taking on Canadians Brian Campbell and Kris Versteeg in the "Skate 'N Shoot" competition. Once you get past the slo-mo, homoerotic dressing and hair-flipping scene, you'll be hard-pressed not to laugh at the guys hamming it up in their speed skating unitards. And don't miss Versteeg's, um, unusual skating style.



Canada can have the Mini-Olympics, America is saving up for the real thing. USA! USA!

Pretty sure Team Canada will beat Team USA in the real Olympics too.

Great to see Burish moving around so well.

I really would like to know where they got the speed skating outfits. They're pretty amazing.

I am also excited to see Burish up and about. We need another feisty guy out on the ice to lay down the law.
