The man, who has not been named, wore the Team USA jersey from 1980, which was the year a ragtag American squad defeated the Soviet Union to claim a gold medal at the Lake Placid Games. It was a legendary performance, immortalized in the movie Miracle, and etched into Olympics lore from then on. Basically, it was the complete opposite of 2018, which means the magic of 1980 could not be conjured for the men in PyeongChang, save for a random guy with swift reflexes.
While the men were abysmal, hockey fans can take solace in the USA's Women's Team, which has been kicking ass up and down the ice this Olympics. The women's squad is set to face Canada in the Gold Medal Game a little later in NBC's primetime coverage of the Games on Thursday, February 22.
Let's hope hockey puck guy shows up.
