Well the fall of the Iron Curtain is what allowed a lot of people to do a lot of things, so you would probably be right.

What it really comes down to, for me at least, is that I thoroughly enjoy watching hockey in the Olympics. I like seeing these powerhouse teams go at it and show the passion that they sometimes lack during the regular season.
