Update: So, Command Transportation is taking today’s USA loss in stride. After the game, they changed the electronic billboard to show a bald eagle with a “Belieber” gold chain necklace. At least the US has a winning sense of humor?

Original: The Olympics are a big deal already, but if a Chicago-area transportation company gets its way, the stakes will never have been higher when the US and Canada face off in the Olympic hockey semifinals tomorrow.
Command Transportation, a company based in Skokie, Illinois, put up a billboard today that reads “Loser Keeps Bieber.” The billboard features Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane (US) and Jonathan Toews (Canada), as well as Bieber, the international pop-icon who many Americans want deported back to his native Canada after a slew of recent run-ins with the law.

The billboard can be seen off of the Edens Expressway, about 13 miles north of the United Center.
