Since I ended up having a day off yesterday, I got back home and ended up watching that movie "Miracle" with Kurt Russell concerning Team USA's upset win over the Soviets in the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. I just barely remember the real thing...basically, my memories of the game were seeing Herb Brooks exploding in joy and then Jim Craig with the American flag draped around his shoulders. I enjoyed it as a nice little timewaster before dinner, but was surprised that it had actually been released theatrically. I frankly found it to be better suited as a made-for-TV feature. Some good camera action during the game but the story was about as straight-arrow as a 1940s Knute Rockne feature.
Almost done for the night. I had that student of the bossman's. Really pleasant fellow and willing to speak out and ask questions. He and his colleagues will be heading out to Washington and New York late next week on a business trip so he's a bit nervous about interacting with the natives there. But he should be just fine.
