The USA and Canada are going to meet not once but twice in the next two days in hockey at the Olympics. First it will be the women in the gold-medal game on Thursday and then the men will battle in the semifinal on Friday.

It's a pretty big deal as the neighbors have become increasingly bitter rivals on the ice. And as we know, no rivalry is complete in sports without political figures making wagers on their constituents.

Normally these fun games come from mayors but considering we're talking about international competition here, the games have to come from a much higher level. Like the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper and the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Mr. President, I hope you enjoy Molson.
