I have loved hockey ever since I was a young (tomboy) child playing street hockey with the boys in the cul de sac of a wonderful neighborhood. You could find me wearing an authentic Chicago BlackHawks jersey, sporting #5 Phi Russel (mid 1970's).
Anyway...I am super excited that the US won gold in the women's hockey. While there lots of images on Goolge to choose from, I chose this one because it shows the pure joy and excitement on the faces of the players and the American flag is interwoven among many of them. As the winter Olympics come to a close (I am actually watching the closing ceremony as I write this post), it seems as if they just started. Although Norway had the highest medal count for the 2018 Olympics, we should be proud and show our support for our athletes, who represented the U.S. as they took home a total of 23 medals (4th behind Norway, Germany, & Canada).
