In the bedlam and joyous hysteria on the ice following our gold medal-clinching win over Finland on February 24, 1980, I searched the stands for my father. I was remembering all the personal sacrifices that my parents made for me. Remember family 1st, appreciate all the family members, friends, and mentors that have made personal sacrifices for you.
Remember, no team and no individual can achieve greatness without the personal sacrifice of many.
