I don't know what made me think of this today. But for whatever reason the 1972 Olympic basketball game between the US and Russia popped into my head. As most of you probably know, the Russian team got like 5 different tries to end the game before they were able to finally able to put it in. The silver medals to this day sit unclaimed in a vault in Switzerland. I honestly have kind of mixed feelings about this. I think the US should have been declared the winner of this game and that the officiating was indeed horrible. However, it doesn't really bother me much as the US team was mostly black and the Russians were all white so I'm sort of glad they lost. What were you guys opinions on this game?
