Watching the national championship tonight between Wisconsin and Duke reminds me of the 1980 Olympic hockey finale. Wisconsin is the USA. Duke is Finland. Kentucky was the “unbeatable” USSR. Of course, the USA beat the “unbeatable” USSR in the semifinals, much like Wisconsin took down undefeated Kentucky in the semifinals two nights ago. In both cases, the semifinal contest seemed more like the championship, and the actual championship was sort of anticlimactic.
