I re-watched the movie Miracle the other day. It's one of my all-time favorites. I enjoyed this article by SI.com's Joe Posnanski on some lesser-known facts from that game.

I am not really a hockey fan. I enjoy watching it on occasion but never make an effort to do so. I was riveted by the Olympic tournament, and hearing that the NHL is weighing whether to participate in 2014 seems crazy. As mentioned in the article, the Olympics make hockey, for once every four years, nationally relevant. To abandon the Olympics would be foolish, but it wouldn't be the first bad decision the hockey powers that be have made.
Here's hoping they don't give up on a good thing.
