He's very very hard on himself. He's been tremendous all year long. I have to assume that Rafalski tipping that pass on its way to Crosby threw him off a little bit and he just went down too slow. If he's down earlier, Crosby has nothing to shoot at and probably aims high corner and fires it wide.

I don't plan an evening around it but I enjoy the sport when the stakes are higher or the intensity is ratcheted up via rivalries.

I go back and forth on this, but I enjoy the pureness, non-watered down and less comercialized event that is the Winter Olympics versus their summer counterparts. May have a different viewpoint after 2012.

I also enjoy the various speed skating events but I’m not a fan of the figure skating or ice dancing competitions.I also occasionally watch the hockey but it seems as though I get more interested the more frequently I watch. I am not a fan of the NHL but will take a look at the outdoor game they televise annually on New Year’s Day. I think I do that mostly due to the novelty of seeing a game played outdoors at a historic venue such as Wrigley Field or Fenway Park. The men’s gold medal hockey game will be played on February 28th – the last day of the Olympics. I will probably watch some of it no matter who is playing. My first real interest in Olympic hockey was etched in stone almost 30 years ago – February 22, 1980. That was the “Miracle on Ice” game in which the USA team beat the Soviets 4-3 to advance to the Gold medal round against Finland. I still get chills when I think about what that victory meant at that time in history. It was the rag tag bunch of amateurs and college kids versus the best professionals that the Soviets could field. This Soviet team routinely trounced NHL all star teams of that era. It is no wonder that the story was made into a TV movie in 1981 and a Feature Film in 2004. The only thing that surprises me is that it took that long to hit the silver screen. If you have not seen it I would recommend it – perhaps watch it this week.Here are some interesting facts to note about that game. It was not televised live in the afternoon (except on Canadian TV) but on tape delay in primetime. It was not the gold medal game. As I stated above they had to beat Finland to get the gold. It is the most watched hockey game in USA television history. In 2008, the International Ice Hockey Federation picked the “Miracle on Ice” as the number-one international hockey story of the century. Sports Illustrated voted it as the greatest sports moment of the 20th century. The picture of the American team celebrating the win on the Sports Illustrated cover the following week is the only cover in its history without a caption or headline. The team was named the Associated Presses athlete of the year.That hockey win was probably my most memorable Olympic sporting event. The '72 Munich Summer games and the terrorist attacks rank as #1 in shock value. The '96 summer games were also marred by a terrorist attack. 2 killed over 100 injured. I almost forgot about that. Saddened to see the luger get killed this year.
