Putting Hockey Back On The Map…

One of the greatest hockey games I’ve ever seen. I have to admit, this was the first time I was pulling hard for the U.S. I was wrong about them. They were tough and had a ton of heart. Ryan Miller absolutely played out of his mind and deserved the MVP.  I feel happy for Canada. Let’s face it- we would annihilate them in baseball, basketball, and football. Let’s just give them hockey. This match was important for this sport. Since the lockout of 2004-2005, its popularity in this country has plummeted. Hockey needed a moment to capture America, just like the Miracle of 1980. Tonight’s game gave us that moment. Hopefully, the NHL can maintain some Olympic momentum and carry it into this season’s second half. Btw, turn on NBC if you’re reading this. This closing ceremony is emotionally awesome.
