T.J. Oshie of Team USA gets the Jim Ross Treatment
Team USA beat the Russians 3-2 in a shootout on Saturday in Sochi, and T.J. Oshie is being embraced by an entire nation, deservedly so, as a hero. He doesn't agree with the "hero" title, but when you get the Jim Ross Treatment on YouTube you've definitely done something special.
Oshie scored four shootout goals to lift the Americans to an upset win over the mighty Russians in a game that will go down as an instant classic. Although this is just a preliminary game, it's a massive win for Team USA who should now be on their way to winning Group A.
Everyone is talking about this game today and it's great for the entire event to have a game like this so early in the schedule. The best hockey tournament in the world just got a whole lot more interesting and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing these two teams meet again in a win-or-go-home situation.
Team USA was criticized by many for selecting T.J. Oshie over Bobby Ryan...but nobody is talking about that today.
It's hard to believe that the NHL is still considering not sending their athletes to the Olympics in 2018. Moments like today will, hopefully, change their mind. The real important games begin on Tuesday/Wednesday.
Oshie also got mashed up with "Miracle". Nice job here.
