Congratulations Team USA, you made Vancouver 2010 an enjoyable Winter Games. I remember looking at the rosters for the teams of the different countries, and I agreed with most everyone that Canada and Russia, with their superstar players would likely be the gold medal game. Nobody gave USA a second thought, and it was a lot of fun cheering on the scrappy underdog USA team these past couple weeks. Certainly nobody thought they would go undefeated through the tournament–their only loss was in the gold medal game against a team that had much more talent than they did. And they put up a good fight too in a last-minute thriller of a game (highlights video).
And congratulations to my Sharks Olympic medalists, Marleau, Thornton, Heatley, Boyle, and Pavelski!
Thanks Daniel and Lisa, for letting us watch the game at your place!
