Hey Canada, best 2 out of 3… errr… best 3 out of 5? pic.twitter.com/n7tLp8qyu0— Command Sign (@CommandSign) February 21, 2014
This was an inevitable sign of the times following Team USA's 1-0 loss to Canada Friday.
Command Sign, a freight brokerage firm outside Chicago, is the company behind this billboard shown in the Tweet above and the one posted below that triggered the internet's "#LoserKeepsBieber" trend on Thursday:

The Biebs himself checked in with his 49.8 million Twitter followers after the game:
Big win Canada!! Gold medal next! #proudcanadian— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 21, 2014
Bieber appeared aware that #LoserKeepsBieber was a top trending topic in the United States but tried to stay above it all on Twitter:
I guess I'm an easy target for some. I'm still human. I will continue to meet hate with love. It's all about the music. Much love— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 21, 2014
Thanks to all those beliebers out there inspiring me everyday— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) February 21, 2014
Next time, Command Sign could wager Rachel McAdams, Evangeline Lilly or Elisha Cuthbert just in case things don't work out for the USA.
Or better yet, Patrice Bergeron.
