The commentators were doing Yeoman’s (sp?) work in trying to jinx the first team to win 5 gold in Hockey in a row by referencing it early and often.It's still the 21st here, but everywhere else (including in Korea) it's the 22nd.
38 years to the day after USA 4 - USSR 3.
Good point. Guess it could be a little more common in individual sports. I was just thinking more of the team events here in the U.S. I think I'd want to be off the playing surface pretty quickly and not have to hang out and watch the winning team celebrate.They do it at all the tennis Grand Slams.
The only explanation from their point of view would be that it was an aaccidental collision.Did anyone hear an adequate explanation as to why that Poulin hit did bit meet the criteria for some sort of penalty? Or if it did and the refs said they missed seeing it?
Seeing the Minny BC Final 2 years ago in Durham/UNH did that for me, despite the result.That game last night was one of the most exciting sporting events I've watched in a while, Super Bowl included. Well played, edge of the seat action.
I had never really paid much attention to women's hockey. Last night changed that for me.
She drops her with that first pump fake and then can do what she wants. Just a filthy, filthy series of moves against a top 3(?) goaltender in the world. Great tournament for the twins.It looks like she beat her 3x in one play. First to the left, then 5 hole, then the goal. I think she could have scored in all 3 places
Was just thinking this earlier. She doesn't get the same glory (and her goal wasn't as fancy), but the sixth shot doesn't happen without her.More credit to Amanda Kessel as well. if she hadn't scored to tie up the shootout and things remained the same, Canada would be taking home the Gold.
I guess you could say Canada got steamrolled.And now 3-0...I suppose you don't often get to call a German sports team a Cinderella story, but this team comes entirely from the DEL, which is maybe the sixth or seventh best league in Europe, and six of the players in the squad come from Adler (Eagles) Mannheim, which is the ninth-best team in the league. This truly is something.
