I'm not a big hockey fan, but I found myself captivated last night watching the USA defeat the mighty Canadian team at the Olympics. Yes, Team USA is made up of some good NHL players and they have an exceptional goalie, but the Canadian team roster reads like an All-Star team. Clearly, Canada was more talented, as they remained on the attack throughout much of the second and third periods. But the scrappy American team continued to fight, and this empty net goal, a pure hustle effort, signified why the Americans won the game:
These Olympics are turning out pretty amazing for the American hockey team. Maybe the Georgia Bulldogs should take some notes about playing with heart and use it on the field this fall.
