Backup goaltender Jen Lee’s reaction to getting his gold medal before his teammates was in many ways why the Paralympics are so amazing. The uplifting, cheerful spirits of these guys — who’ve overcome more than able-bodied people can really imagine — puts quite a bit into perspective.
Lee basically pretended to cry, as if he was the exhausted one who pitched the shutout today against the Russian side (it was actually Missouri-native Steve Cash). An awesome moment in an awesome tournament. Please donate to USA Sled Hockey.
