Ya absolutely. And quite a site it was quite frankly. Here you had Phil Esposito, perfect hair of course, brand spankin new red & white all leather CCM Custom Pro Gloves, black pants, skates actually shined, snazzy Team Canada jersey & fresh stick taped "just so" towering over the Red Army Team with their odd looking Jofa Beetle Bailey lids; sweaters that looked like they'd been hand knitted by their Babushkas' in 1942/43 during the Siege of Stalingrad, possibly buried with a dead body at one point and then dug up; their gloves, sticks & skates about 10yrs out of date; a goalie with a frikin bird cage dangling from his helmet; what looked like Assassins, Morticians & Coroners from the Polit Bureau working their bench. The whole "event" was just, I dunno, "weird". No way were they going to worry about them beating us in a series like this. A lot of arrogance, swagger, a self absorbed, self indulgent era.
