As I watched the U.S.A. Men’s Hockey team step off the podium after receiving their silver medals, I couldn’t distinguish if I was more upset by the team’s thrilling overtime loss or by the abrupt end of the 2010 Winter Games. In the past two weeks, I have become accustomed to checking the medal standings on Google and coming home every night to watch incredible performances by world-class athletes. Now, I will have to wait another four years for another two-week span of intense winter sport coverage.
