Team USA surprises in Sochi with 1960 throwback jersey


The United States faced Slovenia today, but they weren't wearing either of the two jerseys that were unveiled in the fall. It was a pleasant surprise to see the USA donning a classic jersey — a throwback to what the 1960 gold medal team wore.

Normally I wouldn't be so slow to post news like this, but I wanted to enjoy the game unspoiled this morning. (Since I was sleeping at 4:30 AM, I relied on my TiVo.)

So I hadn't seen the tweet from USA Hockey teasing the jerseys hanging in the locker room. I found out on TV.

I think it's awesome that the U.S. played this one close to the vest. It was a very cool surprise this morning. What did you think of it?
