I thought it was a fun read and some others would enjoy it. Of course I'm sure my American compatriots are going to scream bloody murder about 1980 but I think Sean makes some solid points about the tournament. I'm obviously biased since I wasn't conscious enough to ever see the 1980 Olympics or before, but he nails my two favorite Olympics at #1 and #3, 2002 and 2010. Not that the US doing awesome had anything to do with that assessment.
I think 2010 was better than 2002 personally. It just doesn't get any more dramatic than that gold medal game, especially with the Americans beating the Canadians earlier in the tournament, and the fact that an Olympic record for gold medals was on the line for Canada.
