Quote of the Day
"It was a real empty feeling to lose. But when they showed Cammi Granato's face on the big screen and the medal around her neck, my feelings changed completely. I realized a gold medal was being hung around the neck of a female hockey player, and I couldn't believe the effect it had on me."
Canadian Coach Shannon Miller, after her team lost to the United States, 3-1.
