one of the differences is that when you win the bronze, you won your last game. To win the silver you have to lose the last game.Robbie wrote: ↑Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:44 pmWow, that's a first. The Swedish captain just took off his silver medal and threw it across the glass wall to the stands. Someone in the audience caught it and I'm sure that will be a much better souvenir than a hockey puck that goes into the stands.
I know it's a repeat so many times, but it's worth mentioning again. Despite a demotion from 1st to 3rd, Team America are much more ecstatic with their bronze medalist than the crying Team Sweden players with their silver medals.
also, after losing the semi-final, you have time to get your emotion into check before being awarded a lessor medal.
