I just watched the US Olympic hockey team defeat Canada 5-3. In view of the disparity in talent between the two teams and the fact that Canada was playing on home ice, this is the greatest US hockey upset since the 1980 Miracle on Ice. As a one-time hockey player and longtime fan, I’m very happy. I fear, however, that the result will cause a lot more pain in hockey-loving Canada than joy in the comparatively apathetic US. But I’m not a consistent utilitarian and this is one time when I’m satisfied with an outcome that doesn’t maximize utility.
