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?
