you're not being respectful at all. A respectfull canadian would say something like this: "The rag-tag American group of college kids defeated an essential professional hockey team on the sports biggest stage, a Soviet team that won the Gold medal every Olympic hockey tournament since 1960, a collection of players that had been together for years. How surprising considering just 3 days before the Olympics started the US lost to the Soviets at NYC's Madison Square Garden 10-3. "My country Canada had their chance at the soviets in that very tournament, in fact, my country played the soviets in group play and lost when given a chance to beat the Soviets. My country played in the consolation game against Czechoslovakia to determine FIFTH place and got trounced 6-1. Congrats America on your great win, it is still, to this very day, seen as one of sports biggest upsets by people without the word "canada" on their passports. Great job america!" But hey, we didn't take it seriously until 1992 so like whatever dude!!! but hey, that teenager tournament nobody watches during the major holiday season with little US television coverage did more for hockey in the US than that silly little Miracle on Ice. Gotcha! Like I said: "delusional"
