I was there

In 1972 I got a call from a friend asking if I wanted to go to Moscow for the 4 games. I had little money and no vacation time left but immediately said yes. So four of us in our mid twenties embarked on the trip of a lifetime. We seemed to be among the youngest of the 3000 so I wonder how many are still with us to relive the memories. I will never forget seeing Russian soldiers with rifles in the aisles. I guess they thought we mild mannered  Canadians might riot if we lost.

I have many other memories to share but will leave it at that for now. Da da 🇨🇦 🍁  nyet nyet Soviet.
