Do you believe in miracles?

NEVER SAY NEVER!!!
30 YEAR AGO TEAM USA SURPRISED THE SOVIETS AT THE 1980 OLYMPICS ON THEIR WAY TO A GOLD MEDAL…
IT STILL STANDS THE BIGGEST UPSET IN HOCKEY HISTORY…
BEFORE THE KICK OFF AT SUPER BOWL 3…THE BALTIMORE COLTS WERE FAVORED BY 20 POINTS TO BEAT THE NEW YORK JETS…
JOE NAMATH BACKED UP HIS GUARENTEE AND PULLED OFF THE BIGGEST UPSET IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY…
IN 1990…BUSTER DOUGLAS WAS A 42-1 LONG SHOT AGAINST MIKE TYSON…
IN THE 10TH ROUND…DOUGLAS KNOCKED OUT TYSON TO BECOME THE NEW HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD…
AGAINST THAT BACKDROP…IT IS SAFE TO SAY…
“ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE”…
IT ALSO HELPS TO EXPLAIN WHY HOCKEY FANS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE A LITTLE NERVOUS AS THEY PREPARE FOR TONIGHT’S SHOWDOWN WITH SLOVAKIA…
ON PAPER…THIS IS SHOULD NOT BE CLOSE…
BUT THEY DO NOT PLAY THE GAME ON PAPER…
TWO NIGHTS AGO…TEAM SWEDEN WAS EXPECTED TO ROLL OVER THE SLOVAKS…
INSTEAD THE DEFENDING OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS WERE SENT HOME…EMPTY HANDED…
IN THE WORDS OF HENRIK SEDIN...“WE WERE THE FAVORITES AND WE COULDN’T HANDLE IT”…
“I HOPE CANADA DOES A BETTER JOB”….
AMEN TO THAT!!!
IT’S THIS SIMPLE…
IF CANADA PLAYS THE SAME GAME TONIGHT…THAT THEY PLAYED WEDNESDAY AGAINST THE RUSSIANS…
THEY’LL MEET TEAM USA IN THE GOLD MEDAL GAME ON SUNDAY…
ON WEDNESDAY THE CANADIANS USED…THEIR SPEED TO TAKE AN EARLY 3-0 LEAD…
AND THEY USED THEIR SIZE TO PHYSICALLY ELIMINATE THE SKILL OF THE RUSSIANS…
ALEXANDER OVECHKIN WAS SHUTOUT…AND WAS MINUS 2 ON THE NIGHT
ACCORDING TO SIDNEY CROSBY…
THE SLOVAKS CAN EXPECT MORE OF THE SAME…
IN HIS WORDS…”WE STILL WANT TO COME OUT THE SAME WAY…WE WANT TO COME OUT HARD”…
SOUNDS GOOD…BUT…THERE IS STILL THE MEMORY OF 1998…
WHEN DOMINIC HASEK CLOSED THE DOOR ON TEAM CANADA…
CAN YOU SAY…”JAROSLAV HALAK”???
WHICH GETS US TO THE HARD REALITY OF SPORTS…”EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW…YOU NEVER KNOW”…
