Thanks!
I would like to add that in this game it was particularly
obvious that both countries have excellent teams, and it was
so close that although there was a winner, there certainly
was no loser.

Cheers,
Chris–

I add my congratulations to the Canadian Hockey team and the
country they represent. As hockey is so dear to Canadians, it was
sweet for them.

Actually, the players on each team are professionals. But, that
they could play just shows that they were the top players of each
country.

I heard a good part of the game on the radio and saw a portion on
TV. I am not a fan, but it is an exciting sport

One commentator said it was the experienced and older Canadian team
versus the young legs of the American team. Well, those old legs
did all right.

Either four or five of the Cabnaduan team are members of the local
San Jose Sharks and had to fly back to get ready for a Tuesday
night pro game. Oh, their aching legs!!!

The whole thing was just great. Well, except for the luger that
lost his life and the figure skater that lost her moother, yet went
on to win a medal. her mother is proud, you bet.

The recovery from the torch debacle was refreshing!!

In this family we have a 48 year old son and a 14 year-old Girl’s
Team Captain who are hockey fanatics and players so it was thrilling
to watch…great hockey without the brutality; like chess!..with
plenty of toughness( nice for kids to see the difference)…
My sport 54 years ago was fencing…Epee’…(and soccer) but I really
enjoyed this !
It was the Canadian sport and on their home ground, so i have to say
i was pulling for them (I am a frequent visitor to their country,
eh?)… or pleased either way at least…
They all play on teams all over and with and against each other so it
was “Pure” in my eyes…

So were mine, Bill!

Though in games within military teams we used the restrictions of the
Geneva convention rather than the more gentile points of games, much
like ice hockey. Though we didn’t have to deal with prisoners…:slight_smile:

Hmmm.

I think I have a bayonet or two around here somewhere. My father
taught me the drill at one time, I wonder if I remember it. Thrust,
rip, parry & butt or somethimg like that.

I lost my GI issue U.S. Marine Corps Machette. I used to keep it
under the seat of my F150 4 x 4 to ward off car jackers. I forgot
to take it out whenm I sold it. I wondser what it’s new owner
thinks. That was really a fine blade.

The device that it attaches to is gone. Mebbe, I’ll find another? I
had such a device once, of somewhat English origin. Very neat. I’ll
not describe it further as Pete will get me for sure.

There was a sport including the devices and skiing in the winter
games at one time, I wonder if it is still there.

Ok, I’ll stop and go to bed.

Fine games, good sportsmanship.

Not I, Bill - more about military soccer; limping off with a broken leg
were likely to elicit sensure for leaving the field without permission.
And as for the epee - Erroll Flynn would have been scared, and bayonet
competitions - usually won by the guy with one round left in the rifle…:slight_smile:

Ah, for the mellowing effects of Jaguar and age; I now play golf -
strictly according to the rules of St Andrews…:-))
