The Summer for that matter was 92 but it was awesome to go to 4 events in 96!!! I hope San Diego CA. Gets it in 2024!!!
This Olympics I was disappointed in Russia's team. I w ...[text shortened]... Bronze Medal game 5-0 to Finland.
I got up in the 2nd period and Canada is up 1-0 to Sweden.
I think the US had the same thing happen to them that happened to Canada in '98. They felt like they were almost entitled to be in the gold medal game and to even win it.
After a hard fought loss to Canada they couldn't get over he disappointment to fight hard for the bronze.
I missed the gold medal game, but from what I have read it was a great game that Canada played very well at shutting Sweden down.
