Olympics, Ice Hockey

I was helping my sister to scrape several layers of old paint off an iron fireplace. The TV was on with the Russia X USA game.
Ice Hockey is not a big sport in the UK but, we both got totally involved in it. Ended in a 2:2 draw so penalties were taken and both of us were standing watching we were so enthral led with it and touring for the same team.
Sister and I are quite vocal when sports are on so my B-I-L had to come in from the garden to see what we were making so much noise about.
The penalties went on and on - both sides were so well matched.
I will not say who won, and this was an early round so no medals, just in case anyone is watching later.

This has always been a huge rivalry going back to the cold war days....

Neither team likes the other one much, and the players played like it was for the Gold...

Great game...just needed a few more fights...

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

You're not going to see many fights in Olympic hockey. Just good hard playing with quality hits. Hockey at its best.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
