I was watching also. All during the game, you would hear little kids start chanting USA, USA, USA. I will agree that they didn't look bad. The Wolves commentators joked they were waiting for Mike Eruzione and Mike Ramsey to skate out on the ice. :hockeysmiley:

ah yes, the Philadelpha Phantoms, America's Team :wacko:

i'm just as confused as you are. the only AHL team it'd make sense for in any remote way would be the Rochester Americans, and even then it would make little sense. it'd be like the Hornets wearing Dream Team unis, or the Rockies donning USA baseball unis. or the Maple Leafs wearing Canada throwbacks :P

Unfortunately they didn't get it right...

If you're going to do something stupid, at least get it right.

...And if you're going to criticize and make snarky comments, at least use pictures from the actual Olympics, instead of trying to pass off film footage as proof of what was worn at a specific event. Pretty sure Kurt Russell wasn't behind the bench in 1980, and the hairstyles and clothing of many of the fans looks a little too contemporary.

Happy?

I'm at work and was in a hurry to post before someone noticed.

It's a nice gesture and all, but I really think a player should qualify for his national team before getting the honour of donning the sweater in a game.

...especially that sweater. <_<

Good point.

Not much in sports is sacred, but the 1980 US Olympic hockey team comes pretty damn close.
