Saturday night I got my first taste of the upcoming Winter Olympics. I was beside myself with excitement as I watched the US Women’s hockey team VS. Canada’s Exhibition game in Denver on TV. The US lost 4-2, but not without a fight. And they rallied at the end of the third period. Now I’m even more excited for the Winter games. Thursday we’ll find out who made the official Olympic Women’s team. Exciting!
Equally exciting this past weekend was the Gopher Men’s hockey team’s ability to pull off a sweep – 3-2 both nights – against Michigan Tech. Let’s hope this was their turning point weekend and that after the break they’ll come back strong.
