USA players are about to make a big “we won the Gold!” dogpile in the above photo
Our womens’ hockey team prevailed in the Gold Medal game at 3 AM today and Bulldog saw the last hour of it! Including an overtime period and that INSANE shootout that won it for us!
If you’re not a hockey fan, know that I do cover some of the bigger sports stories here, especially ones like this that fit into larger stories. This game was nuts! Truly it was.
Beating the Canadians is tough in any Olympics or World Championship; this time the stakes were higher because of how they barely edged by us in the 2014 games for the gold. In fact, many are saying that today’s game felt eerily like that one four years ago.
These Winter Olympics have been fun to watch. I’ve seen less than I’d like but have greatly enjoyed what I’ve been able to see.
And for me, this game was the cherry on the top of a yummy Olympic Sundae!
