I’ve always wondered what it would take to get a person that isn’t into hockey to really appreciate it. Sometimes all it takes is just a big name. Sometimes it takes an actual game in person to really appreciate it.
But if I was to point out one thing, it may have been the USA vs Russia game I just witnessed.
The game had great stops, great scores, top notch players and a thrilling shootout that was heart-racing. Plus whenever Doc Emrick calls a game, it’s always good.
Hockey is a simple game but it isn’t fun for everyone unless there’s some kind of interest. In a game like this, it had all of that. USA vs Russia was a great storyline. The world’s top players. And throughout the game, we were introduced to great shots, great goaltending, a controversial goal that was wiped away and non-stop action.
This game had it all.
If you are not into hockey, this game did it for you. You’ve got to be hooked now.
If you missed it, shame on you. You need to get your life right.
