Regarding “Miracles on Ice” [March 12]: Americans have a penchant, sometimes even a genius, for naming things with puns: a bike shop called Citizen Chain, a lunch spot called Cafe O Salad Mio, a consignment store called Chic to Chic. But I think the grand prize needs to go to those forever-young hockey players called the Gerihatricks. That is just brilliant.
