That game was awesome, one of the best games I ever seen. The Russians tried to mount a big time comeback, but some amazing saves by Mike Richter (who apparently found his groove from 1994) saved the U.S.
Too bad they'll lose to the mighty Canadian team. (Can you guess who I'm cheering for?)
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
I wish the NHL would adopt the bigger ring the Olympics uses. It makes the game so much more exciting. Unfortunately, the league wouldn't want to give up the seats they would have to remove to make the ice larger.
Quite the state tour for Bucky this year: the Frozen Tundra Classic victory over Ohio St. at Lambeau f'n Field, then NCAA playoffs across the street at the Resch Center, and the Frozen Four in Milwaukee. Man, I'd hate to see the UW Band bus's gas bill.
