(For The Win) – T.J. Oshie was quickly labeled as one of the American heroes of the Sochi Olympics with his clutch performance against Russia on Saturday. In an interview with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review columnist Dejan Kovacevic, he said he believed otherwise. Heroes, he reportedly said (via Kovacevic’s Twitter), is a term that should be reserved for someone other than a hockey player.
Well said, young man.
Kudos, of course, to the American athletes at Sochi.
