I remember the 2002 gold medal game like it was yesterday, I especially remember when Lemieux faked to receive from Pronger made the puck slide between his legs and into my all time favorite play Paul Kariya. Canada was a powerhouse in the 2002 winter olympics with players like Joe Sakic, Rob Blake, Martin Brodeur, Theo Fleury, Adam Foote, Jarome Iginla, Mario Lemieux, Eric Lindros, Al MacInnis, Brendan Shanahan, Steve Yzerman and ect…what a powerful team.
This reminds me of the “City Of Gondor or Minas Tirith or City Of Kings”, LOTR geek right here :P
…Lord Of The Rings reference
I can’t wait for my trip to the big apple friday, even though I’ve been there like 20+ times. I just love long drives and New York City.
