Olympics are over. It was pretty good this year. One thing I wonder about-when exactly did the Olympics decide to be pro rather than amateur? I vaguely remember Magic Johnson playing basketball at the Olympics. I was reminded about it again in the hockey game when one of the announcers talked about how the US quit playing hockey because the Russian team was pro. Didn't the Olympics committee have rules? I did enjoy the hockey game but couldn't really root for US versus Canada because 1. they're all or mostly professionals. 2. There are plenty of Canadian players on US hockey teams, including the Stars. Anyway, the Canadians played well, as did the US. Was it the Best Game Ever? I don't know, but it was pretty dang great. (The US goalie who said it was Just Another Game sounded a bit sour-graphish-and what was up with the announcer towards the beginning trying to explain why hockey was like football! !!!! !!!!! heh )
