It was 30 years ago today the greatest moment in American sports history took place in what we now know as The Miracle on Ice. To commemorate this event the 2010 USA Men’s Hockey team went out and played on of the greatest hockey games this side of Lake Placid NY, circa 1980.
IN the beginning of these Olympic games I found it tough to have to root for Zach Parise, Jamie Langenbrunner, Brooks Orpik and Brian Rafalski, all enemies of the Garden Faithful but after last night pride of country has taken over pride of Broadway Blueshirts. Having Chris Drury and Ryan Callahan on the team makes it easier to root for team USA as they have embraced the same players whose blocks they enjoy knocking off for national pride.
The big problem will come if Team USA plays Sweden for the Gold Medal. Love of country or love of King Henrik?
