The only times in this nations history that anything great happened it was because normal men put aside their petty differences and fight for a common cause.
"The great object is that every man be armed . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun." (Patrick Henry, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution.)
Wow, a lot of memories based on trajedies. How about some good times,
1. 1980 US Hockey team beats Russia, then goes on for the gold.
2. 1994 World Cup team USA (again, hockey).
It's not that often that we as a nation get to truly root for a national sport. When we do it's magical.
