    I don't remember that either. I don't think I have ever seen the entire game though. Just the last few minutes of teachery is all I have seen of that game.

    Doug Collins, who was on that team, is being interviewed by Golf's Flaherty this week on The Golf Channel. I imagine it will come up.

    Russia’s Antidoping Agency Is Reinstated by WADA.

    I'm sure everything will on the up and up from now on.

    Hopefully the IOC tests creates a redundant system to check Russian athletes and verify the findings of the Russian agency.
