This high-school junior watched as Al Michaels counted down the clock and asked us all "Do you believe in miracles?"

I was 8. That started me on hockey. Of course it also cursed me to life as a Blackhawks fan. :cry:

I was a freshman. My grandparents were @ Lake Placid for the Olympics that year (they did not have tickets for any hockey matches). We watched on TV from home. Cheered, teared up, it was awesome!

Think any were on steroids? Would it matter if they were? It wouldn't matter to me.

same here, my mom was about 8 months pregnant with my sister, and there's a 20-month difference between my sister and I, so I was 19 months old.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.
