LOL at Dawn! Let's all move to Canada! I wonder how Becca would take it? Everbody likes Canada, so why not!
Becca, me thinks you think I'm pulling your leg about my not wanting the NHL to be in the Winter Olympics. But I'm not. And get rid of the NBA in the Olympics, too.
Becca, you seem to think I base my decisions on whether the America teams win or not. That has nothing to do with it. If America won both gold medals in hockey, I would have been pleased. But not thrilled. I would rather have the New York Rangers win the Stanley Cup than have America win hockey gold.
Nothing can ever top the "Miracle On Ice" of the 1980 Winter Olympics. The NHL is about teams. The Olympics are about countries. And that's why Olympic hockey is more popular than NHL hockey.
If you want pro's playing and participating in the Olympics, maybe professional figure skaters should go for gold, too. it would have been interesting seeing Ilia Kulik (1998 gold medalist) battle it out with his Russian countrymen Alexei Yagidin and Yevgeny Pluschenko. Or to see Peggy Fleming battle it out with Sarah Hughes (wink wink!).
