Quarters under the ice?

Anybody remember in Salt Lake City, when Canada won the gold, there was a big discussion of them (Canadians) having put Canadian Loonies (not sure it’s spelled, but that’s my best guess) to for good luck? It seemed to have worked. So here are my questions: should the US have put quarters in the ice for good luck? If they did (they might have, guess we’ll find out at some… Continue reading
