The past few days have been trying, to say the least, for the United States.
As one of the favorite teams to win the gold medal at the World Hockey Championships, the USA suffered the humiliation of being beaten by Germany in the semi-finals, thus costing them their place in the final against Canada. .
Then, afterwards, in the bronze medal game, they were once again humiliated by losing to Latvia.
They now come back empty-handed from their tournament.
As if that was not enough, the Latvians added insult to injury yesterday after their victory by going to lay flowers in front of the American embassy in Riga.
By the way, if you were wondering how important this victory is for the people of Latvia, it was officially declared yesterday that the day will henceforth be considered a national holiday in the future.
