Everyone's been aching to just hand over the gold to Canada in this Olympics. But I say don't count out Big Blue.
Now granted, Canada's team is essentially the best of the best of the NHL. But I still like Team USA. It's a bunch of scrappy young guys. And thirty years ago (eeh! was it really that long ago?), a scrappy bunch of underdogs shook the world.
I love Olympic Hockey - nothing's better than seeing the game played on that big ice. In 1992, I was in my sophomore year at Syracuse. My roommate and I bunkered into our dorm room for all the hockey games. Ted Donatti & Company got close, just short of a bronze. But I think of that great series every time I see USA hit the ice.
I'd also like to add that Team USA's sweater is awesome. Finally a traditional look!
