Happy Anniversary


“There’s a lot of people in this building who do not know the difference between a blue line and a clothesline. It’s irrelevant. It doesn’t matter because what we have, have had, is the rarest of sporting events. An event that needs no buildup, no superfluous adjectives. In a political or nationalistic sense, I’m sure this game is being viewed with varying perspectives but manifestly it is a hockey game. The United States and the Soviet Union on a sheet of ice in Lake Placid, New York.”
