For those of you who are American, this article will make you proud.  Team USA's Jocelyn-Lamoureux Davidson, whose squad won Gold over Team Canada in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games Women's Ice Hockey event, chronicles what the gold medal really means to her and to the US Women's Ice Hockey program -- twenty years in waiting.

...it was so much more than gold. It was validation for every woman that had worn the red, white and blue over the last 20 years. It was a moment for everyone whos been a part of this program to enjoy. That medal the one I cant stop looking at right now really symbolizes a lot more than just two weeks of hockey.

Brad Marchand is the most polarizing person on the planet for me.

He's the typical "love him on your team, hate him on other teams".  Worked so hard to go from 4th line agitator to 1st line winger.  Always plays on the line, and crosses it way too often (and seems to slip getting his due from DOPS too often). 

Of course, in the middle of a series where I would have preferred Kadri had hit him instead of Wingels he's putting something out on Player Tribune:

And this is my favourite part, and makes it almost impossible to hate him as much as I should:

We had to get ourselves pumped up, so wed always play that song by Sir Mix-a-Lot and sing along. You remember the one. Picture four little kids in full hockey gear and one grown man, all alone on the road at 4:15 in the morning, screaming out, I LIKE BIG BUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE. YOU OTHER BROTHERS CANT DENY.
