Olympics – 1988 Calgary – Hockey – USA VS WGer – Introduction & Partial 1st Period


I have always had the opinion that athletes have to be just a little bit crazy to play the game of hockey….I mean, first you put a bunch of aggressive ice skaters….who can achieve rapid speed on a pair of razor sharp blades called ice skates…..then you put them in pads so they can initiate and endure “train collision” crashes on the boards….then you give each player a club called a hockey stick….and allow each player to utilize as many “checks” as they can make good while on the boards….now does that sound just a little bit crazy!?!
